Terminating a marriage between two people in the state of California can be tricky. But since California is a no-fault divorce state, you will only need to claim one reason for why you and your spouse are filing for divorce, and that is irreconcilable differences. This simply means you and your spouse no longer see eye to eye, and are not able to overcome your differences.
There are two types of divorce that can be filed in the state of California:
This type of divorce can be complicated. If you’re not able to agree on how to handle certain issues related to divorcing your spouse, such as custody of children, or how to split your assets and property, then this would be considered a contested divorce. As trained negotiators, we’ve helped many families throughout San Diego settle their issues and agree on terms to help resolve their contested divorce. If settlement is not possible, we possess the litigation skills and experience to win your case.
On the other hand, you may know exactly how you would like to handle your divorce and agree on how to handle the divorce. If that is the case, and you are ready to finalize your uncontested divorce, it is best to reach out to an experienced San Diego divorce lawyer like Kevin Lemieux to walk you through the divorce process.
