Effective Resolutions For Your Divorce Issues
There is no such thing as the perfect marriage. Every couple will encounter difficulties during their marriage, and in some cases, there is just no way to find the compromise that is a hallmark of a successful relationship. There is nothing wrong with deciding to file for divorce. In many circumstances, it is the only way that you will be able to bring an end to the constant disagreements that you are having with your spouse.
Kathleen J. Smith has over 20 years of legal experience guiding people through the divorce process. Kathleen Smith really cares about you and your case, and she will work hard to put you in the best possible place as your divorce moves forward.
A Law Firm You Can Trust
This is perhaps one of the most difficult emotional experiences of your life. You are in an extremely vulnerable position, and you may be inclined to make decisions that get back at your spouse or bring an immediate end to the proceedings.
Know that you need to be very careful about the choices you make during your divorce. Without clear guidance, you could make a decision that will cause you serious problems in the future. We help with all the difficult issues that need to be addressed in a divorce, including:
- Determining custody and visitation schedules
- Resolving disputes over your marital property and debt
- Whether a party will receive or have to pay spousal support
- Addressing any domestic violence concerns that are present
- Developing creative solutions to outstanding problems that prevent an agreement from happening
- Litigating your case if a resolution is not possible or in your best interests
There are many different reasons why a marriage may not be working out. But the fact of the matter is, California is a no-fault divorce state. This means that it doesn’t matter why you want to get a divorce. When you hold on to negative emotions and feelings about your ex, you are only hurting yourself.
We want to help you overcome these hurdles. We work with you to help you focus on the most pressing issues in your case, such as child custody or property division concerns. We want you to be focused on your future so that when you make a decision, you are able to clearly see the impact that it will have later.
