Divorce and Separation

Experienced Divorce Lawyers in Southern California

Navigating Complex Cases in Southern California

Divorce can be an emotionally challenging and complicated experience. Apart from the emotional impact on you and your children, you might have to address several intricate legal issues. The longer it takes to resolve these issues, the higher the emotional and financial costs of the divorce. At Divorce Authority, our objective is to offer clear, powerful solutions to help you efficiently navigate your divorce.

Our divorce attorneys possess over 300 years of combined experience handling all types of cases related to marriage dissolution, including child support, alimony, and asset division. The final divorce agreement can impact your life for years to come—our Certified Family Law Specialists strive to ensure that the outcome is favorable for you.

How Divorce Authority Can Assist You

We help clients address various marital disputes throughout Southern California. By taking the time to understand the personal and legal issues involved, we create a step-by-step plan to achieve your goals. You can expect to stay informed as we explore every possible avenue to obtain the best outcome. Our aim is to reach a settlement that accommodates both your and your children's needs, but if a fair settlement cannot be achieved, our skilled litigators won't hesitate to go to trial.

Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce

When both spouses agree on every aspect of their divorce, including custody and property division, the divorce is considered "uncontested." This leads to a lower-cost divorce since all issues are resolved before going to trial. No litigation means reduced costs, less time spent in court, and a quicker, smoother dissolution of the marriage. Our attorneys are proficient negotiators, capable of crafting solutions that offer a cost-effective result for our clients.

Although uncontested divorces are possible, they are relatively rare. Most spouses have to assert their rights to marital property and child custody through litigation. Contested divorces are more common, where spouses argue for their share of property and parental responsibilities in court. In these cases, having an experienced litigator by your side is crucial to ensuring your voice is heard throughout the divorce process.

At Divorce Authority, our lawyers excel at both creating agreements and protecting your rights in court. Whether your divorce is uncontested or contested, we have the skills and resources to safeguard your future.
