Frequently Asked Questions:
How long does an uncontested divorce take in California?
If you and your spouse agree on all divorce terms, an uncontested divorce can be finalized in as little as 6 months. We can fast-track the process when needed.
What documents do I need for my initial divorce consultation?
Useful documents include tax returns, pay stubs, mortgage statements, retirement account info, credit card statements, car loan notes, and any existing prenups or postnups.
Who decides who gets the house in a divorce?
California is a community property state, so marital assets like a house are typically divided equally. However, the court does consider factors like custody arrangements when allocating property.
Is an attorney required for a divorce in California?
While you can technically file for divorce yourself, having a skilled family lawyer protects your rights and assets. We navigate the intricacies of property division, support, and custody issues.
What percentage of income is typical for alimony?
There is no standard alimony amount. Factors considered include the marriage length, incomes of both spouses, future earning potential, and the marital standard of living.
