At The Law Office of Lori Clark Viviano, we understand that one of the biggest causes of stress in divorce cases is fear of the unknown. People simply do not know what to expect from the divorce process. Our attorneys are committed to minimizing stress by educating our clients about the divorce process. We want to make certain you know everything you need to know as you move forward on your journey to a new life.
Here are some common San Diego divorce questions and answers:
What Happens If My Spouse Is Spending Money During The Divorce?
One of the biggest concerns for many people going through a divorce is what is happening right now. Is your spouse spending money that should be divided during the divorce? Our lawyers will take steps to put an immediate halt to spending. We will work to ensure that you, your property and your children are protected during the divorce process.
What Property Will I Get To Keep After The Divorce?
California is a community property state. This means that, as a general rule, assets acquired by either spouse during the marriage are to be divided equally. We will review your situation and learn about specific property you want to protect, in order to develop a strategy that is appropriate for your situation.
What Will My Relationship With My Children Look Like After The Divorce?
Rest assured that California law favors children and maintaining a stable environment for them to grow. In most cases, the goal is to ensure that the child has a continued relationship with both parents after the divorce. We are experienced in all child custody and visitation matters and can protect your relationship with your child.
How Long Will My Divorce Take?
The length of a divorce can vary dramatically depending on the factors involved. We understand that most people want to move this process as quickly as possible, so we often recommend mediation to facilitate agreements without having to spend time in litigation. Of course, we also want to protect your interests, and that may take time. At a minimum, there is a six month waiting period from the date the petition is filed to the date the judgment can be entered. This includes cases in which parties are in full agreement on all issues.
How Much Will My Divorce Cost?
We are a cost-conscious law firm. We analyze every case and suggest the path that will not only lead to the ideal outcome, but will do so within your budget. Often that means suggesting mediation, which is typically much less expensive than going to court.
