Dissolution Of Marriage Or Domestic Partnership
A Beverly Hills Divorce Lawyer On your Side
Make no mistake: For most people a divorce is disorienting or worse. Experiencing the breakup of your family or marriage is not for the faint of heart — but as with any great challenge, knowledge is power. Staying informed can be the best way forward when a pending dissolution of marriage makes you feel life is spiraling out of control altogether.
When One Household Will Become Two...
Filing a petition or response for dissolution can be one of the most surreal and challenging decisions a person can make for themselves or their family. Many issues regarding finances, custody and the future are determined by the initial action a person takes when filing or responding to a dissolution.
Your life partner now will become your legal opponent and that can make it difficult to determine the right path ahead as you complete all requirements. An experienced attorney on your side can remove a great deal of stress and provide the guidance you need to make the right decisions confidently.
