Divorce

Making the decision to file for divorce or seeking assistance after you have been served divorce papers can be a complicated matter. You may wonder about the future of your family, how you will protect your financial stability, and how your children will fare after the divorce. You are also dealing with the emotional and psychological aftermath of a separation. At Legal Service Centers, we offer preparation of legal documents at your direction in divorce proceedings.

Whether it is contested or uncontested we can assist you in the preparation of your documents.

An contested divorce is the type in which the spouses cannot arrive at an agreement on one or more key issues in order to conclusively terminate their marriage. When spouses cannot arrive at an agreement, even with the assistance of their legal counsel (if any), they must approach a court to adjudicate their dispute.

An uncontested divorce  is the type in which both parties arrive at an agreement on all issues. In California, an uncontested divorce could mean one of two things: You and your spouse agree on how to handle property, money, and parenting issues. In some cases, this means neither party will need to file a response to court filing.

 

Divorce Or Legal Separation

A Legal Separation is a court order that mandates the rights and duties of a couple while they are still married, but living apart. In a divorce, the spouses are no longer married.

Legal Service Centers is proud to announce that we are now helping same sex marriage or partnership in the preparation of their divorce or legal separation.

To obtain a divorce or Legal , the husband or wife must petition a court for a judgment of divorce or legal separation. Our Legal Document Assistants usually draw up these documents for the Petitioner (otherwise known as the person filing for divorce or Legal Separation).

The initial petition often demands much more than the Petitioner expects.  Most Petitioners often use the initial petition as a wish list.

In most cases, the Respondent (also known as the defendant or the person who didn’t file the divorce or legal separation) has a limited time to file an answer. The Respondent’s answer is usually brief, admitting or denying each assertion and asking the court to deny the Petitioner’s request.

Motions

Early in the process, parties may file motions for temporary orders to address any pressing issue that cannot wait until the end of the divorce.

But most parties make serious efforts to arrive at an acceptable temporary arrangement without going to court. Avoiding temporary orders will help keep down fees and possibly create a more favorable impression on the judge.
