Rancho Cucamonga Family Lawyer
There is nothing more important in a divorce than the future of your children. Because a divorce can have such a profound impact on your relationship with them, it’s essential to work with a family lawyer from the Law Office of Laurence J. Brock.
The judge’s ruling will determine where your children live, how often they see each parent, who can decide where they go to school, what sports they play, which doctor they see, and much, much more.
If you want to have joint or full custody, it is critical that you hire an experienced attorney as soon as possible to work toward that end. When your children’s future is at stake, hire a family lawyer from our firm.
Filing Temporary Orders
Once you file for divorce, you may have to wait from six months to a couple of years for it to be finalized. How long it takes really depends on how many things are in dispute and the complexity of those items. For example, if you are fighting over a business, it will take far longer to resolve than if you are fighting over the sofa.
With that in mind, temporary orders can be requested. As the name suggests, these orders can set things temporarily while you are waiting for your divorce trial.
An example of a temporary order would be determining who can live in the house, the temporary custody of the children, who has access to which credit cards, and so on. We can both help you determine what needs to be dealt with in this manner and file for the orders on your behalf.
Custody Options You Can Live With
There is no one-size-fits-all custody arrangement. It is entirely dependent upon the needs of your children, what is in their best interest, and your family relationship. To discuss the more standard custody arrangements and what you think would work best for your children, speak with a Rancho Cucamonga family lawyer from our firm.
The goal is to present a custody arrangement proposal to the court and explain to the judge why it is in the best interests of the children. Framing the proposal in this way will provide the best chance for the court accepting it.
Help With Financial Considerations
Custody is not the only concern during a divorce. Child support, its monetary amount, and who pays it are all also important items of consideration. Additionally, all of your assets and debts will be divided, and how they are divided will be based on the outcome of your divorce trial.
Having a family lawyer from Rancho Cucamonga in your corner makes it likely that the division will be fair, while ensuring that your rights are protected throughout the proceedings.
Going Back to Court
If you are already divorced but are dissatisfied with your custody situation, child support arrangement, or any other issues involving your children, you may have the opportunity to go back to court and have them adjusted.
There must be a good reason for doing so; however, the court does recognize life changes that dictate the need for revised orders. For example, if you lose your job, your income would decrease, and it would be completely reasonable to ask for your child support payments to be reduced accordingly.
