The Benefits of Hiring a Lawyer
Culver City Divorce Lawyer
There are several important benefits to having a lawyer on your side when
you file for
divorce. Under state law, you have the right to your share of the property and
assets of the marriage. Making any agreement without legal help could
lead to sacrificing far more than you need to. When our firm takes on
a case, our focus is on getting the best possible agreement in place,
based upon the situation. We know how to negotiate with the opposing attorney,
how to protect the rights of our clients in all matters, including
spousal support, child custody, property and asset division and other issues. Call our
firm, Widger & Widger, APLC today for information about filing for
divorce. If you have a simple, uncontested divorce, and you agree with
your spouse on all the critical points, we should review your situation
and ensure that all the paperwork is in order, and correctly filed, and
in a timely manner.
Understanding State Law
Another issue that can come into play is state law. As a community property
state, the determination about the division of assets can go terribly
wrong without an attorney that has the insight and experience to pursue
a favorable and fair settlement. A judge faces many divorce cases. It
is impossible for any judge to fully understand all of the issues in your
individual relationship and your marriage. In many cases, without a Culver
City divorce lawyer from our firm presenting your case, the court will
be forced to make a decision based upon what is heard in the courtroom.
People lie and can hide valuable assets, or make false claims about you,
including that you are incapable of caring for children, are abusive,
or have committed domestic violence. If you are not represented by a lawyer
that will stand up for you and present evidence to challenge these claims,
they will stand uncontested.
We advise that you have an attorney if you are planning to file for divorce.
At our firm, we have
over 20 years of shared experience, and we know state law, and how to work within the system to get results
for our clients. Call us today for information about filing for divorce.
We will zealously protect your rights in all the critical issues, and
your objectives are the focus of every legal action that we will take.
