The first meeting with a divorce attorney can be stressful

In almost all divorces, whether in California or another state, the experiences are traumatic. Even when considering the possibility of filing a divorce, there are many things to think about, especially when there are children involved. For that reason, most people choose to rely on the support and guidance of an experienced divorce attorney.

Father’s rights help relationships with children after divorce

You love your children. You take pride in being a great father. You enjoy teaching and nurturing your children. Unfortunately, you and your spouse have decided that your marriage will not work out. The two of you have come to the conclusion that it is best to divorce. You know that this is the best thing for the two of you, but you worry about your relationship with your children.

With proper guidance financial impact of divorce can be limited

Ending a marriage does not only take a significant emotional toll on both parties, but it is also financially taxing. Just the thought that the same amount of income will have to provide for two households after the separation is enough to cause elevated stress levels. Then comes the division of property and debts to further complicate the process. The trick is not to try and navigate a divorce in California without experienced legal counsel who can help to prevent the total derailment of retirement plans and college savings for the children.

Child custody: What are the best interests of the child?

When it comes to children in a divorce, each state has different laws. However, in California, as elsewhere, the best interests of a child will always be the primary consideration when decisions are made about child custody. The criteria of each state might show slight variances, but the general principle is the same.

At what stage of divorce is it best to consider mediation?

Most people in California may be aware that one of the options available if their marriages should end is mediation. Divorce mediation is becoming the chosen method to reach divorce settlements for those who want to save money and time. It is also true that divorce mediation provides a platform to negotiate a settlement free of the trauma and animosity typically associated with litigated divorces.
