Divorce Lawyer for San Marcos, California
In California, divorces are always “no fault” because couples are not asked to give a reason for their divorce. Every divorce is deemed due to “irreconcilable differences.” Divorcing couples must have lived in California for a minimum of six months, and in the county (in which they are filing for divorce) for at least three months.
The consent of both spouses is not required to obtain a divorce. In the event that both parties do not agree to the divorce, this will result in a contested divorce. The Law Offices of Borg and Duisters provide counsel and representation in both uncontested and contested divorces. As skilled negotiators, we encourage couples to work towards a cost effective and practical resolution by means of mediation. In cases of contested divorce, our litigators advocate for your interests and rights in court. The first step will be completing an individualized asset worksheet.
The waiting period for a divorce in the state of California is six months.
At our family law firm, we know that divorcing couples must make abrupt changes in living arrangements, lifestyle, and in many factors affecting their children. Our family law lawyers and divorce attorneys help clients make the best of the situation and take the high road wherever possible. We also use our experience and knowledge to help clients avoid future conflicts and litigation.
