A divorce is a stressful enough experience even when the
couple are on good terms. When the terms of the Marital Settlement
Agreement become a point of disagreement, such as who gets what, the
stress level and time and money involved in resolving the issues
It is always our goal to try
to achieve mediation and a good faith negotiation about property,
spousal support, custody, etc. When that doesn't work or is not
possible, our job becomes obtaining the result our client wants.
Family law in California is governed by the Family
Code. Most people don't really understand what the law says about
separate or community property, marital obligations such as debts,
etc. A lawyer who can guide you through this most difficult process
becomes your friend and ally.
