The Main Roseville Divorce Options Available to You
Each relationship is unique, which makes the divorce process unique as well. Even so, your Roseville divorce attorney at McCunn Law will recommend three main options. Many people find that they attempt all three approaches, but we try to ensure we recommend the one that is right for you.
Most divorcees dream of an uncontested divorce. It is usually the fastest, cheapest and easiest of all three options to pursue. The couple comes to a mutual agreement, signs the necessary paperwork and waits for the court to finalize the divorce. In cases like these, we find attorneys do not need to play a strong role, so we provide the paperwork, offer advice if you need it and then give you directions on how to proceed.
Unfortunately, not all couples can come to an easy agreement. The concerns highlighted above can cause the self-preservation instinct to kick in. When it does, people often become selfish and only focus on protecting their own personal interests. As well, if one partner does not agree with divorcing or does not wish to compromise, he or she can make things difficult out of pure spite. In this case, you need a divorce lawyer to represent your best interests, advise you and help present your case in court.
When there are children involved, California courts generally require parents to attempt mediation before taking the case to court. Mediation involves hiring one neutral professional to hear both sides of the case and attempt to find a peaceful agreement. Both parties may also hire attorneys who represent their own interests. Sometimes, mediation does prove successful. However, we reserve the right to pursue an adversarial divorce if your partner remains uncooperative.
