How Talking with an Experienced California Divorce Attorney Can Eliminate the Fear of the Unknown
April 1, 2022, In Divorce
At WHITMARSH FAMILY LAW, PC, our Los Angeles family law attorney knows that there is a lot of misinformation that goes around when it comes to California divorces. While most people know someone who has been divorced, it is impossible to understand what one means to you and your family unless you are going through the process on your own.
That is because each divorce is different, and so are the circumstances surrounding the marriage’s dissolution. That is why one divorce may appear exceedingly more difficult than another.
The question is, what will yours look like once the proceedings begin?
Our skilled Los Angeles County divorce lawyer can help eliminate the fear of the unknown, so you can make informed decisions about your future, and move forward with confidence.
Confronting the Fears Associated with a California Divorce
If you are considering divorce — even if you have not told your spouse, or anyone else about your thoughts — discussing your unique family dynamics and potential marriage dissolution with an experienced Los Angeles divorce attorney can help remove the stress that surrounds the decision.
Our dedicated family law attorney helps our clients understand the reality of their divorces, so they know what to expect personally, and from the legal process.
Understand Your Personal & Marital Finances Before Pursuing a California Divorce
If you are unaware of your marital finances, now is the time to understand each detail, so you know what to expect going forward.
This is especially important for spouses who have not participated in the marriage’s financial planning or are unaware of their current monthly income or expenses.
Here are just a few details you will need to answer:
- Do you know what your current financial standing is?
- Do you have access to all bank accounts and investment statements?
- Do you know what your current income to debt ratio is?
- What are your expectations for property division? And your overall assets and debts?
Often, expectations and the reality of the marital finances are vastly different.
The more you know about where your current finances stand, the easier it will be to prepare for the future.
We can help you determine how your finances will be divided during the divorce proceedings, and whether you are eligible for spousal support.
California Divorces Involving Minor Children Have Significant Implications
One of the most contentious parts of any divorce is who will get custody of the children. Child custody decisions will also directly impact who pays child support and in what amount.
Child custody and support decisions will be weighed on multiple levels, including the number of children, their ages, emotional stability, and their current lifestyles.
At WHITMARSH FAMILY LAW, PC, our dedicated child custody lawyer in Los Angeles will help you understand each aspect of child custody, so you can place the fear of losing your children behind you while you focus on a combined parenting plan that places your kids’ best interests first.
Do Not Forget About Yourself
The stress of a divorce can be overwhelming. Especially if you have no idea what to expect from the process.
Our leading Los Angeles divorce lawyer will help you eliminate the unknown, remove the confusion between fact and speculation, and provide the answers you need to achieve the best results for your unique case.
This approach will allow you to take the time you need to adjust your self-care routine, so the physical, emotional, and financial stress does not overwhelm you.
