When broken down into its most basic form, including the countless emotional factors, a divorce is simply a division of responsibilities, assets, and finances.
Types of Divorce
The length of time and costs involved to complete your divorce depend on you and your spouse. Orange County Family Law Lawyer, Douglas Pinkham, is fully prepared to either work with you alone, with you and your spouse, or with your spouse and his or her counsel to get the desired results as quickly as possible.
- Litigated: When you and your spouse just cannot see eye-to-eye on crucial issues, such as child support, child custody, and visitation rights, litigation means going to court and might be the best choice. Well-versed in all aspects of the California court system, when needed Doug Pinkham delivers a strong campaign that doesn't surrender until the job is done.
- Mediated: True mediation is done between both parties and one mediator who helps the couple:
- draft all documents
- work through the divorce
- stay out of court
- refrain from fighting
Attorney Pinkham's tough exterior quickly adapts to the sensitivities needed for Orange County divorce mediation. Divorce is a vulnerable time for the separating couple; Doug is a good listener, capable of suggesting sensible compromises that often result in amicable divorces—without the need for a California judge! This Southern California divorce attorney is known for offering affordable Orange County divorce mediation services in less than 30 days.
- Litigation/Mediation: Many cases begin as litigation and then settle when the couple comes to a reasonable agreement on disparate issues. If your divorce case changes direction, Orange County Divorce Mediation Attorney, Doug Pinkham, is fully prepared to redirect his efforts and jump into mediation gear in an effort to get things done more expeditiously. That will invariably save you time and money.
Legal separation is frequently the best alternative to divorce. In some married couples' lives, divorce is not an option. There are several reasons for this, the most common include:
- Medical insurance
- Financial concerns
The California legal separation process is exactly the same as going through a divorce. You will deal with child custody and child support issues, spousal support issues, division of property, and all of the same issues as divorce; however, you will end up with a Judgment for Legal Separation, instead of a Judgment for Dissolution of Marriage.
