No couple saying their wedding vows anticipates that their marriage might not last. After all, they are pledging to stay together, “’til death do us part.” However, the reality is that many couples in San Mateo will find that as the years go by, their relationship is no longer tenable, and they are best-off getting a divorce.

Some divorces are amicable, with the couple being able to set their differences aside long enough to reach an agreement on their divorce legal issues. Mediation can be one way for some couples to settle their divorce out-of-court. But, the end of a marriage is not always an easy time, and sometimes, couples find they must turn to the court to make decisions on child custody, child support, spousal support and property division.

In the end, whether the split is amicable or not, issues can arise during the divorce process that each party might not anticipate. It is at times like these that it is important to remember that one does not have to go through the divorce process alone. Dedicated attorneys are able to assist their clients, whether it is through settlement negotiations, mediation or trial.
