Riverside County Divorce Attorney
Divorce can be highly traumatic for all individuals involved. While an uncontested divorce can proceed smoothly if both parties agree on the distribution of assets, child custody, visitation, etc., a contested divorce almost always complicates an already emotionally difficult process. California was the first state to enact a no-fault divorce law. This means that a party can seek grounds for divorce simply based on irreconcilable differences, rather than having to prove blame against the other party. In the state of California, a divorce is referred to as a "dissolution of marriage."
A dissolution of marriage commences upon the filing of a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage. The process of the divorce entails a resolution of all issues related to the termination of the marriage. These include child custody and visitation, child and spousal support, division of property, division of debts, rights to reimbursement, restraining orders and any other related issues regarding the marriage that is to be dissolved. The good news is, most dissolution of marriage cases can be resolved without having to go to trial. Negotiations between both parties and their attorneys can resolve most issues as long as everyone is willing to work together to come to a mutually beneficial agreement. Other matters are resolved through what is known as a "Settlement Officer Conference", an informal process conducted by the county's Settlement officer. If after the Settlement Conference there are still unresolved issues, then they are brought and examined in front of a judge.
