Divorce is never easy, but if you’ve reached the difficult decision that this is a legal step you need to take, it’s important to get off to a solid start. Divorce is a complicated legal matter that requires focus, organization, and a clear perspective. An experienced Roseville divorce attorney will work closely with you to help ensure that you remain focused on the big picture and obtain divorce terms that work for you and your children now and into the future.
If you have children, your primary divorce concern is likely your child custody arrangements. The second most contested component of most divorces is the division of marital property. Child support, on the other hand, is based on calculation guidelines that generally make the issue fairly straightforward, but there are also exceptions to this rule. Finally, spousal maintenance or alimony is less frequently an issue, but it can come into play if one spouse doesn’t have the financial means to support himself or herself post-divorce, and the other spouse has the financial ability to help. All, a combination, or any one of these factors may apply to your divorce, and it’s important to give each the careful attention it deserves.
If you and your divorcing spouse cannot come to terms with the elements of your divorce, you will look to your respective divorce attorney to negotiate on behalf of your rights for terms that you both find acceptable. If you need additional help, you can turn to mediation in which a professional mediator who is neutral on the matters at hand will help guide both of you (with your respective divorce attorneys by your side) toward compromises that you may not have considered previously.
If you and your divorcing spouse simply cannot find common ground on one or more factors involved in your divorce, the court will do so on your behalf. There are, however, several consequences that may help dissuade both of you from allowing the matter to end up before a judge, including:
If you can find a path forward without involving the court, it’s usually in the best interest of everyone. If your soon-to-be-ex, however, refuses to compromise or is making your divorce especially contentious, the court may end up being your best chance of obtaining fair terms.
