San Diego Lawyer Helps Families

San Diego Lawyer
If you are contemplating divorce, a San Diego lawyer can help.  We work with families as they go through a divorce and afterwards if they are unhappy with the judges decision.  Family court is a complicated place with divorce laws and procedures dictating outcomes more often than actual facts.  If you don’t know what you are doing you can get lost in the process, deal with extreme frustrations, and lose the things that are the most important to you.  We understand that this is a difficult time emotionally and will take care of the legal details so that you can focus on helping your family through the process.

Everyone only has so much bandwidth.  While going through a divorce people are dealing with the emotional loss of their family unit and when children are involved you will not only have to process through your own emotions but also theirs.  When you add on top moving to a new house, sorting through belongings, and speaking with family and friends, it can become a roller coaster of emotions that make it difficult to handle the technical aspects of the divorce.  We sympathize for the difficulty you are facing but understand that the process doesn’t stop.

As a San Diego lawyer, we handle the legal aspect so that you don’t have to.  There are a massive amount of forms that need to be completed, documents that must be filed, hearings that need to be scheduled, and appearances before the court.  Even savvy business people can find it difficult to navigate through the complexities of the court system.  Don’t make the mistake of trying to go it on your own, especially when children are involved.  The decisions you make now will impact the rest of your life, or at least until your children turn eighteen.

If you and your spouse are having an amicable divorce there is the possibility of setting outside of court.  Whether working through your attorneys or your attorneys and a mediator, you may be able to reach a consensus on the various issues within your divorce.  If you can, it will save you time and money, and you will have more control over the outcome.  Court is unpredictable, and the judge will make decisions that you have to live with, whether you like them or not.  It may be wise to try mediation if you are in the place to do so.  We will still protect your interest and make sure that you don’t agree to anything that could harm you in the long run.

If you have already completed your divorce but don’t like the current custody or child support arrangement, you can go to court and have the decision reconsidered.  We can help you with this process.  The key is that we need to present new information that was not presented during your prior divorce trial.  This may be as simple as you or your ex spouse’s income changing or the children wishing to go to a new school.  Whatever it may be if it is related to your divorce give us a call and we will be happy to review your case.
