When going through a
divorce, it is not uncommon to be in disagreement over related
family law issues. If there is an agreement between both parties on all issues, the
divorce can be settled with a Marital Settlement Agreement; however, that
is not always the case. Oftentimes, spouses will disagree on at least
one of the issues involved because there are many aspects of a divorce
to settle, including:
These are just a few of the main issues that need to be resolved, but there
are several others. Even if the decisions of dividing up assets or determining
child custody agreements are simple, a spouse can choose to disagree and
make the process complicated just because he or she does not want a divorce
in the first place. Getting a divorce in California is possible even if
one spouse does not want it, but there will most likely be contested issues.
This process could entail mediation along with a trial. It is vital to
your case to have a Mission Viejo divorce lawyer on your side throughout
the entire process. Going through a divorce can be a very emotional and
stressful time, which is why it is important to have a skilled
Mission Viejo divorce attorney who is familiar with the mediation and trial procedures.
If you and your spouse cannot agree on the issues present in your divorce
even after mediation, the court will have to decide on the issues for
you. The court will make the decision about who your children will live
with, how the property is divided, who pays what debts, alimony amounts,
and any other issues in disagreement. There is a lot at stake in a contested
divorce so have experience on your side.
