Culver City Divorce Lawyer
Filing for divorce in Culver City?
When a marriage has come to an end, it is often an emotional situation, and the legal matters involved in dissolution can be extremely stressful. Searching for a divorce attorney in Santa Monica? At our firm, Widger & Widger, APLC, our divorce attorneys can advise you regarding all the critical issues and what can be expected for you in your case. In marriages of long duration, there have been a great number of assets that have been accrued during the term of the marriage. One spouse may have supported the other while in college so that a degree was attained. There are countless individual situations that must be carefully and correctly sorted out so that the two parties can end the marriage.
Community Property and Divorce in Culver City
As California is a community property state, the marital property is that property that was attained during the term of the marriage. This property (or debt) could include real estate, the family home, vehicles, retirement accounts, stock accounts, investments, business interests, works of art and many other types of property. How these items will be split between the two parties is an important matter. A person facing divorce will be dealing with a heavy financial impact in many cases. Our goal is to achieve the most favorable settlement possible for our clients, whether in a simple divorce, or in a highly contested divorce that will be settled at trial.

Another issue of great concern is support – both child support and
spousal support. These matters, when decided in court, are managed through certain formulas. We have found that in many cases, it is far superior to resolve these issues outside of court, and both parties are more satisfied with the outcome, and more likely to adhere to the terms of the agreement, as both were involved in the process. In either case, our firm is highly skilled and professional, and is more than prepared when a case must go to trial. Alternatively, should it be possible to arrange the settlement outside of court, you can trust us to protect your rights and interests at every step of the process.
