What Is an Uncontested Divorce?
Uncontested divorce is a type of divorce in which both spouses agree to the terms of the divorce
that were detailed in the document that was served. If either spouse finds
any of the terms to be unacceptable, then the matter is known as a
contested divorce. In this situation, a form of resolution must be used, such as litigation,
arbitration, or mediation.
How Can I Win Custody of My Child?
There is no easy answer to this question. In all cases, a court will always
try to act in the child's best interest. They will try to place a
child in the custody of a parent who can fully tend to all of their emotional and physical
needs. They will also, generally, attempt to preserve as many elements
of the child's previous living situation as possible, such as their
home or school. To get personalized advice, please contact a San Diego
family lawyer for help.
How Do I Know if I'm Facing a "High Net Worth" Divorce?
Though this is not a hard-and-fast rule, in general if you and your spouse
have at least a million dollars in liquid financial assets, you will mostly
likely go through a
high net worth divorce. These can be very complex situations due to the amount of money and other
assets involved. It may take more time, effort, and attention to divide
this amount of property as the divorce proceeds. If you believe that you
are going through a high net worth divorce, it is in your best interest
to retain an attorney as soon as possible to protect your best interest.
What Is Alimony?
Alimony, also known as
spousal support, is a type of payment that is used to help maintain an ex-spouse after
divorce. It is usually put into place in situations when one spouse was
the main source of income to the household. It is usually given in monthly
installments for a set period of time, giving the individual time to secure
a source of steady income and support themselves.
Do I Need an Attorney?
Even if you are going through a case that seems very simple or straightforward,
it is in your best interest to secure legal representation. If you are
representing yourself in court, it is all too easy for others to exploit
the fact that you do not have the experience and legal understanding of
a licensed attorney. You may end up facing consequences that are both
severe and permanent if you take legal action without a lawyer on your side.
