Why You Need Legal Representation During a Divorce
Divorces fall under the general practice area of family law. This is governed by a set of California civil statutes known collectively as the “Family Code”. This means that the actual process of getting a divorce consists of more than just dissolving the marital union, it also includes settling the various financial interests, otherwise known as the “marital estate”.
In fact, there are four primary issues that arise during a divorce proceeding:
- Property Division - Nearly every marital estate contains both debts and assets. Both of these must be identified, cataloged, and divided between both parties in an equitable manner.
- Spousal Support - This is commonly known as “alimony” and can be a source of divisive contention in many divorce cases. It is generally awarded to the spouse who has a lower income and its terms, timeframe, and conditions are determined by the family court judge.
- Child Custody - This can be a source of tremendous acrimony, even more so than alimony. If there are children from the marriage, then their legal and physical custody must be determined by the divorce settlement.
- Child Support - Raising children is expensive and California family law expects that both parents will contribute their due amounts to the overall process. This legal obligation extends beyond the dissolution of the marriage and its particulars are also determined by the divorce settlement.
Our legal team can help you negotiate the ins and outs of these various issues, all the while ensuring that you and your children’s best interests remain our top priority.
