Helping You With All Issues Of Divorce And Separation
Along with divorce come many other issues. I guide clients through the divorce process to find resolutions to disputes and answers to questions regarding all matters of divorce, including:
- Property division for personal and business assets
- Spousal support (also called alimony)
- Child visitation and custody
- Child support calculations and modifications
- Contested and uncontested divorce
- Separation and unmarried couples
- Same-sex divorce
- Post-divorce matters
Divorce court is often unpredictable. Nobody knows what is going to happen and what decisions are going to be made. Ultimately, divorce litigation means putting your major life decisions in the hands of a stranger. In addition, the litigation process through the current system is very expensive, costing thousands of dollars, and can take many years to complete.
For more than 30 years, I have been working closely with my clients, their spouses and their spouses’ attorneys to develop amicable resolutions to their divorce and family law needs. I work to resolve family law issues without the bitterness and animosity often associated with divorce litigation.
Who Is At Fault, And Does It Matter?
California is a no-fault divorce state. Rather than having to prove grounds for divorce, individuals can file for divorce citing “irreconcilable differences.” In this case, fault does not have any bearing on determining support and division of property issues related to a divorce.
Both parties must exchange written disclosures of assets, debts, income and expenses before the court will process a divorce case. I will provide thorough and comprehensive guidance on how to properly comply with the disclosure process and appropriate discovery services to obtain the same information from your spouse so an informed decision can be made.
I conduct a thorough inventory of assets and work closely with my clients to prioritize their objectives regarding property and support. This allows me to provide effective and appropriate guidance and advocate for their interests.
At John T. Chamberlin, Attorney at Law, my clients come first. I provide accessible, attentive and experienced legal service with the purpose of effectively resolving my clients’ divorce cases amicably.
