Getting divorced is far more complicated than getting married. The process of filing for a divorce requires you to fill out detailed paperwork, file it correctly, schedule a court date, and much more.
Making sense of all this on your own can be cumbersome and feel impossible. Working with a Fontana family lawyer from the Law Office of Laurence J. Brock makes it all much easier. You will have the benefit of our years of experience in this specific area of law.
Going through a divorce is never easy, but an experienced Fontana family lawyer can help make the process go faster and more smoothly. It is critical that you take steps to protect yourself by hiring the right attorney. When you hire Laurence J. Brock, you will be working with a family law attorney who will fight to protect both your rights and your future.
What happens during a divorce has long-term consequences for your financial situation, where you live, how much time you spend with your children, and so much more. We can handle the legal headaches so that you will not need to worry about the process, the paperwork involved, or how to prepare for court.
Divorce is not for everyone. For some couples, a legal separation may be a better option while, as it will provide time and distance to decide whether to move forward with divorcing or to reconcile instead.
When you legally separate, you are no longer legally bound to each other and you are not responsible for the debts your spouse incurs post-separation. If you both later change your mind, you can reconcile fairly easily.
A Fontana separation lawyer from our firm can sit down with you, discuss your case, and help you decide whether you want to move straight to a divorce or start with a legal separation that can be converted to a divorce if and when it is necessary later.
As part of the divorce process, couples are often encouraged to mediate or negotiate. The benefits to doing so are vast, especially in that numerous issues may be able to be resolved outside of the courtroom.
Mediating on your own, however, can be both challenging and unproductive. When you work with a Fontana family law attorney from our office, you will have an advocate who represents you during mediation, ensures that your rights are protected, and negotiates on behalf of your best interests.
If you are like most people getting divorced, you may be unsure of where to turn to for advice. We encourage you to call our office and schedule a consultation with a Fontana family lawyer so that you can ask any questions you may have. We will help you prepare for the steps you will need to take to both initiate and finalize your divorce.
