Few things are as devastating as the end of a marriage. One, after all, does not enter into a marriage with the expectation that it may end. Unfortunately, things do not always work out and one may find themself feeling anxiety, depression, and stress. While these feelings are understandable, it is crucial that you take steps to protect your future interests. Failing to do so can mean difficulty with your finances and a strained relationship with your children. These are just some of the reasons why it is important to retain an experienced attorney.

San Bernardino divorce attorney providing quality service to his clients
One may file for divorce in California once they have lived in the state for six months and in the county, where the case is being filed, for at least three months. The case will begin with the filing of a Petition with the Family Court. A hearing will typically be held, shortly after the Petition is filed, at which the Court will issue a temporary order in regards to child custody, child support, spousal support, as well as other issues. This order will give the spouses a sense of structure while the case moves forward. Each side will have an opportunity to conduct discovery (the process of gaining information in a lawsuit) so that they may present evidence at trial. If a resolution cannot be reached then the case will proceed to a bench trial, at which the Judge will make a final ruling as to all issues and issue a Decree of Divorce. Litigating such a matter is complicated and it is strongly suggested that you retain a lawyer.
