San Diego Divorce Attorney

San Diego Divorce Attorney

Nobody plans on getting a divorce; but when a marriage falls apart and leaves a trail of emotional, social, and financial wreckage in its wake, it is important to have strong legal representation that can protect your rights, look out for the best interests of children involved, and ensure the legal enforcement of pre- or post- nuptial agreements.

There are numerous problem issues that can (and often do) arise in the midst of divorce or in its aftermath. We give attention to each of these below in a brief introduction to our practice areas. But here, let us just say that we at San Diego Divorce Attorney are intimately familiar with all of these issues and with the most effective legal means of resolving them as quickly as possible.

One of the most common areas of dispute in a divorce process is over how the property is to be divided. California law considers that all "community property" (jointly held, also called "marital property") shall be divided equally between the two parties. But there can be disputes over what is community and what is "separate property" over one of the marriage partners. And there can also be attempts to hide property or income or to misrepresent the true value of an item. Thus, an experienced divorce lawyer can do much to ensure equity and legal adherence in regard to financial matters.

Why Choose San Diego Family Law Attorney?

There may also be disputes over child custody, visitation rights, alimony, and other child-related matters during and following a divorce. And in reality, this is a far more important area of dispute than mere money. Sometimes, an abusive parent may need to have his/her visitation or custody rights limited or eliminated; but other times, the rights of a parent to visit and continue a relationship with his/her son or daughter is wrongly targeted by an irate spouse in the midst of a divorce. Or, after the divorce, it may be that one parent who wishes to marry again tries to force the father/mother of the child to surrender his/her legitimate visitation rights. We at San Diego Divorce Attorney understand how divorce affects children and parents, and we know how to fight effectively for right and law to be upheld in each instance:

There can also sometimes be a legal struggle over the legality of the divorce itself. If the divorce is uncontested, that simplifies matters some, but a contested divorce where the grounds of and legitimacy of the divorce are under dispute, will sometimes occur. We understand the details of California law when it comes to contesting a divorce or to opposing such a contestation.

We can help you understand the legal factors involved and fight to ensure your rights are not violated nor the dictates of the law evaded by your contested divorce opponent. 

Finally, there can be residency issues in the way of filing a divorce in certain cases. In California, you must have lived in the state for the previous 6 months and the county you file in for the previous 3 months in order to file divorce. When couples separate just before a divorce, however, there are ways to file in your new county of residence or at least to file for a legal separation there. Or, you can return to the county your previously lived in to file. We can inform you of how these details play out in San Diego County or other Southern California counties.

The bottom line is that the divorce and family law experts at San Diego Divorce Attorney will be able to assist you every step of the way through the whole complicated web of divorce proceedings. You may not want to be in a divorce, but without proper legal representation, your rights and those of your children could be in jeopardy. We can look out for the best interests of you and your children through the whole process.
