No marriage is perfect. Spouses in California and elsewhere will likely deal with many marital issues throughout their marriage. However, when these issues and disputes outweigh the good times in the marriage, this is often the time when one or both spouses decide it is best to call it quits. Even if it is a joint and amicable decision, this does not make the divorce process any easier.

Being on the same page when it comes to filing for divorce might be a goo starting foundation, but it does not mean that all issues presented throughout the process will be as easy or amicable. Divorce can get messy, and when it does, it is valuable to understand what methods spouses can use to work through them.

At the Cohen Law Offices, P.C., our skilled legal team understands that there is more than one way to get a divorce. Much like every couple and family is unique, so too is the way they complete the divorce process. For those with very little issues on the table, it might be beneficial to negotiate their own divorce agreement or take their issues to mediation. Alternative methods can be time effective and could also help the divorcing couple save money.

However, our law firm understands that mediation cannot resolve all problems. If the process is not able to address all divorce issues or is not the right method for you, litigation may be your best bet. A judge will help determine what is best and fair when it comes to property division, alimony, child custody and child support. Our attorneys are well versed in all applicable laws, and will help our clients strategize what route to take.
