At the Law Offices of Sheryl McDonnell, we understand that our clients are going through what is, at best, an emotionally difficult process. If you need a divorce and would like to speak with a member of our firm, you can be sure your inquiry will be met with sincere concern for your family's welfare. If there is a possibility of reconciliation, we can help you reconcile. If there is no possibility of reconciliation, we can help with the divorce process.
Divorce can be compared to a risky business transaction. During the process of divorce, which involves reorganizing the legal, financial, and social relationships between you and your spouse, you can rely on our Office to remain focused on your best interests and the welfare of your children.
A contested divorce is one where a couple does not initially agree on the terms of the divorce. There may be complicating issues such as a custody dispute, domestic restraining orders, or a business valuation, that need to be resolved. Complex and aggressive negotiations may be required in order to reach a resolution, and in extreme cases a decision may only be reached through a divorce trial.
Our office will work closely with you to find the most appropriate solution for your unique situation. During the process, our attorneys will aggressively protect your financial interests and your child's right to an appropriate child custody and visitation arrangement.
In California divorce is considered "no fault," making it relatively easy to obtain a divorce from the court using the concept of "irreconcilable differences." In an uncontested divorce, the spouses have already agreed to split and have decided on the terms of their divorce, settling such matters as child custody, spousal support, how to divide assets and debts, and other issues related to their marriage.
In an uncontested divorce, an experienced divorce lawyer can provide a valuable service, reviewing your terms to ensure you have covered all the necessary points, then drafting the agreement and helping finalize the divorce on your behalf. It is important to speak with a lawyer as early as possible in the process.
