Divorce Attorneys Los Angeles CA
A Los Angeles, California divorce is never easy. Regardless of whether you are referring to the emotional, financial and psychological toll it takes on all parties involved. There are various aspects of a divorce as well as issues surrounding each aspect. Los Angeles residents enduring a divorce may have to face several different court proceedings depending on how complex their situation is. Common issues in a Los Angeles divorce are:
Spousal support (alimony)
Making sure this sometimes complicated family law system continues to move forward is one of the primary priorities at The Law Offices of Atousa Saei, A.P.L.C.
California Divorce Process
Divorce law in California mandates that couples be legally separated for six months prior to granting a divorce. Hearings on the questions of child support, child custody, property division, marital assets and spousal support are all handled individually in California. A skilled and experienced LA Divorce Lawyer who has a plethora of experience dealing with these complex divorce proceedings is very beneficial to you. Helping you to obtain your goals while preserving your rights and interests is our primary concern at the Los Angeles Law Offices of Atousa Saei.
Child Custody and Child Support Issues
California child custody law may require parents to enter into mediation on questions regarding child support issues prior to the case going before a judge. Having a lawyer who knows how to effectively negotiate for you in mediation is very advantageous. Leaving decisions about your future with your child up to the final word of a judge may not be in your best interest.
Parents typically have minimal desire to drag their children through long, painful and tedious Los Angeles divorce proceedings. When it comes to cases surrounding child support and child visitation, as your attorney we are focused on preserving your parental rights while simultaneously attempting to expedite resolution so that you, and your child, can move on.
Issues Regarding Property Division and Spousal Support
Knowing how and when to petition the court on questions of property division is imperative in a California family law case. Failing to petition when appropriate could make you vulnerable losing rights you may not be aware of. We are aware of how emotionally charged people can be when it comes to money and spousal support. Disputes over alimony frequently become the most heated parts of a divorce in Los Angeles, CA.
One of the more common issues in a LA County divorce is the issue of hidden assets. In many cases money becomes the primary focus of the divorce and one spouse, usually the primary earner, begins to hide assets in an effort to not be as vulnerable financially after the divorce. Los Angeles Divorce Attorney Atousa Saei does whatever is necessary to find any and all assets so that her clients rights and interests are protected.
As your attorney Ms. Saei and her staff will stay laser focused on what we are confident the judge will grant you if the case goes all the way to trial. From there we will steer the negotiation toward a settlement that is at least that good or better for you. We firmly believe that the deal you negotiate is often better for you because it is within your own control, while saving you emotional discomfort, psychological pain and money in the end.
Other Legal Issues Confronting Families
The traditional California family no longer involves one man and one woman as husband and wife. Families frequently involve single parents, grandparents with guardianship rights and stepparents. And now that California acknowledges gay marriage, also referred to as same sex marriage, families can now be comprised of 2 men and or 2 women.
Whether your case involves pursuing third party visitation or grandparents rights we will be by your side throughout the entire legal process.
Another issue related to divorce in the Los Angeles, California area is how to make the divorce as easy as possible on the children. Many adults feel that kids are resilient and can withstand the emotional and psychological toll exerted on them during a messy divorce. In many cases once time goes by both spouses usually end up being friendly with each other. With this in mind it is a good idea to get that process started sooner so that the children are less impacted.
