What is a Divorce?
Divorce is the process of dissolving of a marriage. In California the proper term for divorce is dissolution of marriage.
While some people are ready for divorce others are not. Either way divorce causes both parties to run an array of emotions the most common of which is fear of the unknown. These emotions can cause the most intelligent and rational of people to do things that are detrimental to their case. In addition, the emotional and financial burden it creates can be increased when there are issues such as child custody, visitation, child support, spousal support, division of debts, and division of assets (property etc.).
However, divorce does not have to be a bitter battle. If the parties work together with their attorneys the parties can enjoy the benefits of an amicable divorce. When divorcing couples can agree it usually benefits them both emotionally and financially. In addition, when children are involved it helps the children in the transition from living with both parents in the same house as a family to understanding that they are still a family even if mom and dad live in separate houses and are no longer married. In an amicable divorce your attorney’s job is to make sure that you are advised of your rights so that you can make the best possible decision under the circumstances. In addition, the attorney should take steps to make sure your interests are protected or that you waive protection knowingly.
