If you're considering divorce, you likely have many questions: How long will it take? What will it cost? Will I get custody of my kids? Do I deserve alimony? Will I have to fight it out in court, or do I have less contentious options?
Roxana Shayan, Attorney at Law, has the answers. With decades of legal experience in Costa Mesa and elsewhere in Orange County, family law attorney Roxana Shayan is here to provide the personalized guidance you need to fully understand your divorce options.
Although mediation isn't required in California, it's often an excellent way to cut costs while making the divorce process as amicable as possible. However, if litigation is a better choice for your situation, Roxana will let you know. Either way, you can count on her for the representation you need.
To file for divorce in California, you need to have lived in the state for at least six months and your current county for at least three months.
If you don't meet these requirements, you can file for legal separation instead of divorce. You may also decide to legally separate instead of divorce for religious reasons or to retain your right to part of your spouse's pension, should he or she pass away.
If you have questions about the process for obtaining a divorce or a legal separation in Orange County, don't hesitate to contact an experienced divorce attorney. Roxana has the detailed knowledge you need.
It's easy to think that divorce is merely a matter of signing a few papers and taking off a wedding ring. The truth is, it's far more complex and any mistake you make could have serious ramifications.
For instance, if you fail to fully disclose all of your assets and debts during divorce, your ex-spouse could later petition the courts for the right to those assets - leaving you in a difficult financial spot.
Likewise, you might believe that the house being in your spouse's name leaves you no right to it. However, if you were helping to pay the mortgage, it's likely that you have a right to part of the house's value.
Don't take risks with your financial future - and don't unknowingly give away money that you rightfully deserve. A contested divorce attorney will happily assist you with marital property division during divorce.
