Divorce is a time in your life when many matters can become complicated and skewed, especially after the process has gotten started. Because you could eventually reach the point of no return where you and your spouse begin sorting through major issues, it is important to ask yourself: Is it really time to receive a divorce? You must be absolutely sure of this before you start the process.
There may be some questions that you must ask yourself before you take the leap: Have you and your spouse gone to marriage counseling? Have you isolated some of the real problems in your relationship and tried to work through them? Do you really listen to each other’s concerns or have you been tuning each other out? Have you tried to compromise on a variety of issues? Are you teammates or are you no longer working toward the same goals? If you believe that you have answered these questions and still believe it may be time to go forward, then you might be right and divorce is for you.
Starting the Process if You Are Ready
Having an experienced family law attorney on your side through the process is one of the best investments you can make emotionally and financially. Divorce is not an easy process, but we can help you get started as soon as you know it’s the right time. If you do not qualify for a summary dissolution (a simpler way to divorce), you may want to get started on the divorce process right away. You may have to decide on matters of custody, visitation, support, and more and meet requirements, such as living in California for six months before you file.
From there, we will help you fill out and file all of your divorce forms on time, have your forms reviewed, and more. The process can seem complicated and scary, but with us on your side, we will not let you fall. Call us for more information on how we can play a role in your divorce and get you the results you deserve.
