Family Lawyer Cases FAQs

Q: How Much Does a Family Law Attorney Cost in California?

A: While final costs are difficult to predict, legal fees in family law cases can cost between $300 and $500 an hour. Because of this high rate, it is important to hire an attorney who will keep your case focused on the details that matter. Our free consultations will help us decide the best path to take on your legal journey so we take the first step towards settlement together.

Q: What Does a Family Lawyer Actually Do?

A: An Anaheim family lawyer handles representation in cases that impact families, such as separation, divorce, pre-nuptial/post-nuptial agreements, and annulments, as well as child custody, child support, and visitation rights. Lawyers often serve as a mediator between the parties involved in order to help negotiate an agreement between both in order to avoid costly or lengthy legal battles. With an experienced attorney, your rights are protected, and settlements can be both amicable and in your best interest.

Q: What Is the Legal Process for Divorce?

A: In most cases, the divorce process in California takes at least six months due to a minimum waiting period, but these four steps are always included. First, one spouse must file for a divorce. Second, both parties must disclose their financial information to the other. Third, decisions regarding property division, care for children, and any spousal or child support must be made. Fourth, documentation must be submitted to the court and a final decision rendered.

Q: Can We Get Divorced Out of Court?

A: Avoiding court in the divorce process is possible and can save you time and money. Through mediation, both parties can discuss and come to a resolution regarding what would normally be settled in court. As long as the process brings both parties to an agreement, the final documents can be prepared and submitted for the legal dissolvement of marriage. Even if the mediation process fails to reach an agreement, it is a valuable starting point for a trial.
