A divorce can easily be one of the most challenging times of your life. Separating from your spouse will not be easy. Even if you frequently fought before separating, you may find that there are moments where you become overwhelmed by your emotions.
Fortunately, a Corona divorce lawyer from the Law Office of Laurence J. Brock can assist you. We understand what it means to go through a divorce, and our goal is to make yours as smooth as possible.
One of the first questions that people ask is how to divide up their assets and debts. The court will ultimately determine who gets what, so if there is a certain result that you would like to see, we need to build a case for it.
Typically, assets and debts will be divided equally among both parties.
There are exceptions, however. For example, if you can prove that you owned something prior to the marriage or that only one of you benefited from a certain asset or debt, you can link that to ownership.
The State of California generally believes that a child is better off if both parents are involved in his or her life. This means that you need to prepare for the reality of shared custody.
Even if a child resides with one parent more than the other, it is likely that the courts will allow joint decision-making and significant visitation for the non-custodial parent. Your Corona divorce lawyer will create a plan that allows your child to flourish in a shared custody situation without causing undue stress.
When developing your proposed parenting plan, we will also let you know how child support will be affected.
Spousal support is not always awarded, but when it is, the support is intended to provide the ex-spouse with the means to maintain a certain lifestyle. If your spouse is requesting support, but you don’t believe he or she deserves it, we need to prove why.
A Corona divorce lawyer from our office will help you gather evidence to support your claims. For example, if you want to prove that your ex is capable of working full-time and has simply chosen not to, we would need to gather any evidence to this effect, such as offer letters from potential employers.
At the Law Office of Laurence J. Brock, we understand how stressful getting divorced can be, which is why our goal is to make the transition as easy as possible. We can handle all of the legal aspects of your separation and divorce, so that you can focus on adjusting and moving forward with your life.
