Filing for Divorce in Orange County
Many people go to the courthouse to get the documents and forms or download them from the internet and think, “They are just forms, I can fill them out, file them, and go tell the Judge what I want.” If it were that simple, all the world’s lawyers would be out of a job. Every word you write and every box you check (or do not check) can profoundly affect the legal outcome of your case. Failing to properly fill out a Petition for Dissolution could leave you with no spousal support or the loss of assets. Failing to properly fill out an Income and Expense Declaration could leave you with little to no child support or spousal support. Failing to put a proper declaration together in a custody case can cause you to lose custody of your child.
