Benefits of Working with Family Law Los Angeles for Your Divorce

In addition to having trusted legal advice to guide you through the process, there are many emotional benefits to consider:
Divorce represents the legal dissolution of a marriage, while legal separation does not. If you are divorced, you are free to remarry. While legally separated, you are still married to your ex.
Every couple is different and may choose separation over divorce for various reasons. Religious beliefs, financial ties, children, and insurance concerns may be mitigating factors that preclude divorce.
In an uncontested divorce, you and your partner agree to all terms. If you can concur on custody, division of assets, property, and so on, you can avoid a lengthy and costly court process. Uncontested divorces will save you both significant time, money, and stress.
A contested divorce is when you and your partner cannot agree to some or all of the abovementioned issues. In some cases, contested divorces can be settled through mediation, though it is still more costly and complicated than an uncontested divorce.
If you are the primary earner in the relationship or earn more, you might be required to pay spousal support. If the divorce is uncontested, an amicable agreement with your spouse may help you avoid going to court.
Physical child custody refers to where the child lives, the primary residence.
Legal child custody outlines who is responsible for making critical decisions for the child’s welfare, including medical, educational, and religious choices.
A judge could grant either legal or physical custody or a combination of the two. The decision could also grant sole custody (child lives with one parent, who holds all rights) or joint custody, where both parents share responsibilities for making decisions on the child’s behalf. The judge will always attempt to do what’s best for the child under the circumstances.
