Get Help Navigating a Contested Divorce

In California, there are two types of divorces: uncontested and contested. An uncontested divorce is when a couple agrees on all aspects of their settlement. Meanwhile, a contested divorce is more challenging and often more contentious. A contested divorce occurs when a couple disagrees on one or all aspects of their divorce settlement. It is recommended that you have legal representation no matter what type of divorce you are going through. However, it is especially important to secure legal counsel during a contested divorce.

Our attorneys can help with all aspects of your divorce, including:

Not only can an attorney help explain your rights to you, but should you be in a situation where your spouse refuses to come to an agreement with you, they can also represent you in court. Divorce litigation can be challenging, but with the help of one of our experienced attorneys, you can have peace of mind knowing someone is looking out for your best interests.

Professional Mediation Services

Mediation is a valuable tool and can help make the divorce process smoother. When a couple decides to mediate their divorce, they will meet with a third-party mediator. The mediator does not take sides or tell you what to do. Instead, they remain neutral and facilitate the couple’s negotiations as they work towards an agreement. Therefore, you and your spouse will continue to work with your individual lawyers during the mediation process. Your attorney will help you understand your options and can help you make important legal decisions with confidence.

The benefits of divorce mediation include:

  • Keeps the terms of your divorce out of the public record
  • Reduces stress and potentially reduces contention between divorcing parties
  • Can encourage a healthy co-parenting relationship
  • Helps couples retain more control over the outcome of their divorce

Mediation can be used to resolve a wide range of divorce and family law disputes, including child custody and visitation, asset, property and debt division, and spousal support. However, mediation is not appropriate for everyone. For example, in highly contentious divorces or cases where there have been instances of domestic violence, mediation may not be a good idea. We recommend you consult with one of our lawyers before moving ahead with mediation.
