Our firm proudly offers comprehensive legal services for a wide array of family law needs, including but not limited to:
Before you get started on such a difficult legal process, it is crucial that you are fully aware of what you are getting into. You must consider the reality of life after divorce, which may significantly impact other areas of your life in ways you may not expect.
Perhaps one of the most stressful and traumatic experiences for anyone to endure, divorce requires arming yourself with a supportive, high-level legal team to address various complexities including filing, paperwork, or other matters. Because California is a “no-fault” state, you or your spouse cannot allege any wrongdoing for the cause of the divorce.
Once you file a divorce petition to initiate the process, your ex is served with papers and has 30 days to file a response. Depending on the specifics of your particular situation, you may need to resolve other issues via a temporary ruling for child custody, child support, or restraining orders. During this time, your legal team will fight for your rights to property, assets, and other important matters. If necessary, your divorce may be taken to trial during which a judge will determine the outcome.
In rare cases, divorcing couples can come to an agreement about the major issues and do not require any litigation. This is known as an uncontested divorce and is far less timely and expensive. For those who are not so lucky, however, a contested divorce is the next option.
