  4. Child custody

  5. Child support

I moved to the United States from India when I was a young child. My parents got divorced in the late early 1990s, where divorce was not heard of in the South Asian culture. My parents' divorce instilled in me a passion for family law, with a commitment to doing what is best for the entire family, not just one party. I understand the stigma that is placed on divorce in various cultures, and more specifically, how divorce can affect children. As a result, my litigation style is centered on looking at the whole picture and getting the best results for my clients, which at times is not just a financial gain for the parties involved. I also place a great deal of emphasis on co-parenting and safeguarding the children in order to help families cope with the emotions of a divorce.

Compassionate, caring & excellent work ethics.!
Archana is not only an excellent Lawyer but her caring and empathetic personality and is what makes her stand out from the pool of lawyers that surround us these days. I went through a horrible phase in my life for few years and Archana has helped me achieve everything patiently and giving me the right guidance at every step. Today I am at peace from an abusive relationship and have full custody of son because of her. I wish I would never have to go through the courts again in my life but if I do I would want her to be on my side.

Amazing Attorney!
Archana is an exemplary attorney, who goes out of her way for her clients. I recently hired Archana for a custody dispute and a contempt of court violation over custody. Archana not only helped me win my case, but today I have full custody. Archana is the attorney you want to have by your side, she gave great advice, and handled my case with ease. She is compassionate, caring, and meticulous in her work. I hope I never have to go through the court system again, but if I do, I’m glad to have Archana as my attorney.

Dedicated and passionate
Archana is a professional, knowledgeable and dedicated attorney. She helped me a great deal in my legal case. She went above and beyond in helping me understand the legal process and my rights. She makes herself available even with her busy schedule. She was not only concerned with the legal aspect of the case but also how it impacted me and my family on a personal level. She is a hard working and committed lawyer. I was very lucky to have her represent me and even at a short notice. She won the case for me and I was pleased with the outcome.

Exceptionally dedicated.
Archana went above and beyond to resolve the case as expeditiously as possible even though the other party dragged its feet often. She guided me every step, keeping me informed on what to expect realistically. When she took my case, I was depressed by the request for documents for 10 years and the failure by other party to accept all that I gave. She negotiated it to 2 years and helped prepare the documentation. She took the load off my mind and the whole process was lot more peaceful for me. Time was of essence as funds from proceeds from sale of house was locked in attorney's trust and credit card after credit card was losing promotional rates and were jumping to sky high rates. Additionally, it was necessary for alimony to be tax deductible. Archana took a firm stand which made the disbursement of funds possible without further delay, negotiated credit card liabilities and multiple other issues and closed case on time for favorable tax treatment of alimony paid. Her relentless pursuit to bring the case to close is a main reason that I am a happy person today.

Atty. Archana Srivastava Review
I was trying to find a very good lawyer specializing in Family Law, property, divorce, restraining orders and Atty., Archana Srivastava was the one I chose. True enough, I chose the right one. She's very professional, will let you know in advance about changes and what to expect, shows genuine concern, won't just be there for the check, will actually give you good sound advice base on her knowledge and experience of what will and won't work. Very dependable, accommodating and will answer a lot of questions and give explanations. Overall I' m very satisfied with the result of my divorce case and I would highly recommend Atty., Archana Srivastava if you are going or going to go through the same thing I have. It's nice to know you have the right person on your team with your best interest in at hand.

Quick, fast and Good Attorney with empathy
I happen to meet Archana accidently and needed some immediate help. She was quick, gave me lot of education and forms to fill and got us restraining order in one day. Not only she was quick and fast, she did not expect any money from us to give advice. She has emphathy for her clients and can help in legal as well as emotionally which is extremely important for clients who go through separation and divorce. I would definetely recommend her for initial consultation before you talk to other attorney's.

Compassionate and Professional
Archana Srivastava's expertise, knowledge and understanding of the California law helped with my divorce case to a great deal. Our opposing council were extremely tough to work with as they were only focused on extracting as much as they can and delay the process as long as they can. Archana dealt with these people carefully and guided me to make right decisions at the right time. She is good listener and has the patience to hear you out. She let me know up front what to expect at each stage of the case. She was always willing to try to mediate and strike a deal, in order to try to avoid going to trial. She never enforced her suggestions on me but rather at every juncture she presented me with all possible options and outcomes and let me know choose the course of action. She can definitely understand you and help you.
