Understandably, the idea of divorce brings individuals to our office with a wide range of emotions. We are very sensitive and understanding to individuals going through the different stages of the divorce process. To lose what seemed to be unconditional support and have it replaced by what many feel to be hostile and cold legal proceedings will make anyone frustrated. One of our goals is to manage the divorce process so that our clients can make it through divorce with the least difficulty possible.
As divorce attorneys, we have handled several contested divorces with a healthy mix of compassion, competence, and personal attention. When a person hires an attorney early in the divorce process, it will often lower the risk of mistakes that occur when individuals choose to represent themselves in court. This is something that we know well because we have handled cases where the spouse attempts to handle court proceedings for the divorce themselves. They eventually come to us when it becomes too difficult or impossible for them to navigate through the legal system alone. By getting legal help in the beginning stages of the divorce process, you virtually eliminate the chance of making serious mistakes.
We have represented numerous individuals throughout Malibu and its surrounding cities, including Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Westlake Village, Thousand Oaks, and Santa Monica. Our firm handles every aspect of California divorce law which includes property settlements, child support and custody, legal separation, and dissolution of marriage among many other things.
If you are considering divorce or have already been served your divorce papers, we offer free consultations that are geared to help you. It is important that we not only protect your rights, but also protect you from making certain mistakes that people often make in attempting to represent themselves.
