We Don’t Agree On The Terms Of Our Divorce | Santa Clarita
Many of our clients are in the situation where they are unable to come to an agreement on the terms of their divorce.
Both parties want to get divorced, but are having trouble coming to an agreement on such things as Spousal Support, Child Custody, Child Support and other issues related to the separation of assets and debts.
While I do have clients that are completely amicable and they agree on all the terms of their divorce, the majority of divorce cases I handle do have at least some disagreement in one or more of the area indicated above. This is something we can help you work through.
Because of our experience working with the courts, we can help you to use the courts free services to help work out some of the areas where you are having trouble coming to an agreement.
For instance, if you are having trouble with agreeing on how much spousal support or child support should be paid, you can make an appointment with the court facilitator. This is a lawyer working for the courts who will help you understand how child support and spousal support works and run several scenario’s on your income and child custody arrangements to help facilitate the issue.
There is no cost for using the courts services as they are all part of the original filing fee you paid initially. While it is not mandatory that you come to an agreement, the facilitator can draw up an agreement for which can be used for the final judgment paperwork when you get to that part of the divorce.
You never know what will happen during the divorce process. It can be entirely smooth or it can go sideways at any moment. Regardless of what happens we can help you navigate the courts services to get assistance when you don’t agree on the terms of your divorce.
