No couple wants to imagine the day when their marriage reaches its end. Unfortunately, many couples find themselves in this exact situation. In many cases, divorces are rather contentious matters, as couples have a lot to consider when it comes time to break off the marriage. That said, in some cases, divorces are more amicable, which is best for all parties involved. Often, when couples feel they can divorce rather amicably, they will wonder whether they really need to hire lawyers to resolve the matter. Please continue reading and reach out to a Los Angeles divorce attorney from our firm to learn more about uncontested divorce in California and why it truly is so important for you to hire a lawyer, even in an uncontested divorce.
Do I need to hire a lawyer for an uncontested divorce in California?
Yes, you do, and for a number of reasons. To start, divorce involves lots of paperwork and deadlines, and an experienced attorney can help ensure you meet all deadlines, stay organized, and that your divorce is legally recognized in the eyes of the law. Additionally, an uncontested divorce requires spouses to agree on all divorce-related terms–every single one. This includes spousal support, child custody, child support, property division, and more. Though you may think you’re on the same page at the time you initiate the divorce process, when push comes to shove and you actually need to make these decisions, an uncontested divorce can quickly turn into a contested one.
If your divorce becomes contested, you’ll be glad that you hired a competent lawyer from the start who is familiar with your situation and your goals, and who can fight for the best outcome possible on your behalf. Contested divorces typically go through litigation, wherein a judge will hear both spouses’ arguments and, from there, decide on all contested terms of divorce on behalf of the spouses. Rather obviously, having an aggressive attorney in your corner at this juncture is paramount, as the outcome of a divorce will likely impact your future for years down the road. Our legal team is prepared to represent you and your best interests, whether in a contested or an uncontested divorce.
