Types of Cases We can Help You With
If you and your spouse are considering a divorce, you will be faced with a number of challenging decisions. Some spouses are far from amicable when it comes to dissolving their marriage. If you have children, the divorce process can become especially problematic. You and your spouse may go into a divorce on the same page, but could end up on different ends of the book when it comes to issues regarding your children, or similarly contentious issues.
Our attorneys are able to help with a range of family law issues, including:
We will approach these issues with your best interests in mind. Whether you are undergoing an uncontested divorce or need to go to court to resolve your case, a lawyer can provide you with guidance every step of the way. We will work hard to alleviate the financial and emotional stress involved in divorce, as it is our job is to ensure that your divorce goes as smoothly as possible.
What are the grounds for divorce in California?
California is a "no-fault" divorce state, which means that you don't need your spouse's approval to end the marriage; however, you will still be required to state the grounds for your divorce. If you and your spouse consent to the divorce, or if you state that the marriage is "irretrievably broken," then a no-fault divorce will be granted. There is more than one way to settle a divorce, and certain proceedings can be more complicated than others.
Some may require a lawyer that specializes in a specific type of proceeding, such as military divorce. We understand that divorce is a very personal issue, so we always keep our clients' well-being in mind. Whether you and your spouse are in 100% agreement, or your companion is refusing to participate altogether, an Orange County divorce attorney will come prepared with the support that you deserve.
How Child Custody is Decided
If you and your spouse have children, determining custody may be the most difficult aspect of your divorce. The matter of deciding custody refers to both physical and legal custody, and it is essential that the child's needs will be taken care of. We support the best interests of the child, and will stay up to date with the current laws and regulations regarding child custody in California.
Some common factors that are considered when determining child custody include:
- Illegal drug use or past drug convictions
- Any history of domestic violence
- The parents' financial standings and employment responsibilities
- The stability of the parents' homes
- The child's needs and which parent is best fit to fulfil them
