When a couple who has lived together as husband and wife or domestic partners for years or decades comes to realize that one or both parties want to be free from the relationship, numerous issues – legal and otherwise – come to the fore for resolution. Some of the most common issues include, but are not limited to:
If you intend to proceed with or finalize your divorce, it is advisable to seek experienced, knowledgeable and aggressive legal representation immediately. San Diego Family Law Attorneys Yelman & Associates provide personalized, attentive, hands-on client care throughout all stages of your case.
An uncontested dissolution of marriage may be sought if it serves the interests of each spouse. This can be attained if both parties agree to all the terms of the divorce. If the parties cannot agree to terms, mediation may be used. Mediation utilizes a neutral third party to help the parties reach an agreement. Mediation is not binding unless each party agrees to the results; parties are advised to seek an attorney’s review prior to the start of mediation, throughout the process and before agreeing to terms. If an agreement cannot be reached through the parties or through mediation, the case will go to court for a contested divorce.
