Our Client-Focused Divorce Services Help You Navigate The Legal Process
From walking you through the residency requirements and initial filing for divorce to negotiating high net worth dissolutions of marriage, we leverage our in-depth understanding of the law to protect your rights and interests.
In California, you can pursue an uncontested or contested divorce. In an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse agree on all aspects of the termination of your marriage. A contested divorce happens if there is at least one point of dispute between both parties. You may remedy the disagreement outside of the courtroom via divorce mediation or go to trial.
While an uncontested divorce can save time and money and set up a positive foundation for co-parenting if you have young children, certain situations may call for a contested divorce. If you suspect your spouse is hiding assets or has previously been abusive to you and/or your children, a contested divorce can help minimize confrontation and the risk of intimidation.
At Griffith, Young & Lass, our divorce attorneys can help you negotiate spousal support, and we also have experience with military divorces that have certain specificities in addition to civilian dissolutions of marriage.
If you and your spouse share minor children, we can help draft and review a parenting plan that addresses child custody, visitation schedules, child support and any other elements you may want to include in your agreement. Although a judge needs to approve your proposed parenting plan, our team can help increase your chances of securing approval.
