Divorce terms have to be tailored to the case's circumstances

The terms of a divorce are handled on a case-by-case basis. You can't base what you want off of what someone else got. If you are heading toward divorce or are in the process of getting a divorce, you need to ensure that you are taking steps to protect yourself and your interests. We are here to help you determine what options you have and how they will impact your future.

What can I use spousal support for in California?

Spousal support is an important part of a divorce agreement. You won't always get what you want when asking for this type of support but it never hurts to ask in the first place. These payments can be used for a myriad things in life, which is why you should know ahead of time what they are. So, what exactly can you use the spousal support payments you receive from your ex in California?

Does your client want a second chance to go before the court?

Without a doubt, family law matters can quickly become messy, especially when one party claims that he or she didn't have the chance to respond in court. There may come a time when you have a client against whom the court handed down an order, but he or she believes that the situation warrants a second chance to go before the court.

Remember to protect kids' college funds in a divorce

Many parents don't focus too much on their kids' college tuition until the time to pay it draws near. If you are going through a divorce, your child's college financing might be the last thing on your mind. However, this is a time to try to protect your child's ability to count on you and your ex to help out with some of the expenses.

Seeking protections through temporary orders before your divorce

The decision to divorce is unique for every family. Some couples come to a slow and mutual agreement, and others reach a volatile climax. You and your spouse may be among those in California who cannot wait for the divorce decree before obtaining important court rulings.

Does your client want to file a post-divorce appeal?

At some point in the divorce trial, you may have sensed things were not going well. Perhaps the judge took an immediate disliking to your client or overruled critical objections. As the case progresses, you may have concerns about the client's right to appeal a decision. In fact, if your client has already expressed the desire to file an appeal, you may be directing your energy into handling the rest of the trial with an appeal in mind, including making appropriate objections as the case proceeds.

Your divorce plan must be comprehensive

A divorce is a huge life change that you have address head on. You can't ignore it and hope it will go away. The process that you will go through isn't a quick one. There is the legal aspect of things, which is hard enough on its own. On top of that, there is also the logistical facet of the case and there is an emotional process that you will go through.

Plan the separation from your marriage carefully

Making the decision to end a marriage sometimes isn't clear cut. Some couples try a separation to determine if they want to call it quits. Unlike a divorce, there needs to be some rules in place for the separation. If you ultimately decide to divorce, these can carry over to the divorce.

Is your client struggling to deal with the divorce?

There's no way around it: divorce is an emotionally charged process for the spouses, especially if children are involved. This often means that family law attorneys have to be part-legal counsel and part-therapist, and helping your clients manage their emotions isn't always easy. Some clients are better than others at overcoming their emotions in order to get through the relevant legal issues.

You just need to figure out what portion of that debt you will actually have to repay if you get divorced.
