 5 Things to Do Before You File for Divorce in Los Angeles

  • Understand Your Marital Estate: Before seeking legal representation, it is important to understand the extent of your marital estate, which comprises the assets and debts you and your spouse/partner have acquired during marriage. Itemize what belongs to the marriage as well as separate property and debts that should be addressed during the divorce proceedings.
  • Gather Financial Documents: Divorce cases heavily rely on documentation. Financial account records, mortgages, car notes, and phone records are all likely relevant to the divorce. Have access to them and make copies before filing for a divorce.
  • Determine Your Custody Goals: If you have children, obtaining child custody is probably the main issue when getting a divorce. Make a list of your children’s healthcare providers, key events, and other important noted that will help refresh your recollection as you prepare related court documents.
  • Plan Ahead Financially: Plan about where you are going to live and how you’ll meet your daily needs. But remember that you’ll be required to account for the money you take from accounts you share with your spouse after filing the divorce.
  • Talk to an Attorney: You don’t want to be in a position where your spouse can drain the bank accounts or run up bills in your name. Your attorney may advise you to leave the accounts as they are or close them.

Why Choose Los Angeles Divorce Lawyer?

Understanding the Los Angeles Divorce Process

If you and your spouse have been married for less than five years and have limited debts and assets, have no children, and don’t own real estate, you may qualify for a summary dissolution, which means that your case will not be determined by a judge. This process is much simpler and involves you and your spouse agreeing on how you will divide your debts and property and filing a joint divorce petition and agreement with the court. However, if this does not apply to your case, then you’ll have to go through the typical divorce process in California as explained below.

  • The process starts with one spouse (the petitioner) filing for a divorce and serving the other spouse (the respondent) with the paperwork.
  • The spouse who has been served has 30 days to respond to the petition by filing a Response.
  • One of the spouses may file a Request for Order form which involves the judge issuing temporary restraining orders child support, and child custody.
  • The spouses exchange documents and information relevant to the divorce proceedings, including a form that details the spouses’ separate and community property. This is known as the Preliminary Declaration of Disclosure.
  • The spouses alongside their lawyers discuss a settlement agreement. A Marital Settlement Agreement contract is drafted and signed if a settlement is reached. Conversely, the case will go to trial if the parties involved are unable to reach an agreement on all issues.
  • Once the trial has concluded or after the Marital Settlement Agreement has been signed, a Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage document containing all orders given by the court will be drafted and signed into a court record. Once this step is accomplished, the parties are legally divorced and can remarry.

Our Philosophy

Although Los Angeles Divorce Lawyer is a family law firm with multiple attorneys, we have common, core philosophies on how we should handle our clients and their cases. We believe that strategy, logic, and honesty are the key components to helping our clients with their sensitive family law matters. Clients need an attorney who’s honest when providing information about possible outcomes of the case and counseling as to what is imperative to the court. While other attorneys give absurd promises and tell clients just what they want to hear, we strive to provide our clients with a realistic analysis of the situation, so they’re able to make informed, rational decisions about how to proceed with their case. 

If you want to reach your goals, you have to make the right moves.  This includes our lawyers readily assessing the case, anticipating probable reactions from the other side, and coming up with a plan on how to best work towards the client’s interest and needs. Whether we’re negotiating a case or litigating in court, our overall strategy is to be thoroughly prepared. We also employ good attorney/client communication and work together as a team.

We approach cases from a logical, analytical standpoint while giving attention to detail. We assess the case as a whole and make sure that each step we take makes sense. In any family law dispute, emotions will run high and it’s easy for those involved to lose sight of the big picture. We do all we can to help clients understand that they’re engaged in a life-changing process as well as what things will look when the case is settled. Knowing that you’re represented by highly skilled and experienced lawyers will help you focus on the issues with a clear head.
