Divorce Process Options
The amount of unnecessary pain caused and money spent on family law in staggering. The first duty of any attorney is to makes sure their client goes through the divorce process in a way to achieve a fair outcome with minimum expense and conflict. Sometimes, this requires long hours of expensive and painful litigation and sometimes it requires a cup of coffee and a Danish. Diran & Grey focuses on getting you through the other side of this painful process in the best way possible. Keeping in mind the cost, benefit analysis of litigation. Child custody issues are often the most difficult but we approach them in the same way, with the key goal of looking at what is in the best interest of your child.
The toolbox for divorce includes litigation, collaboration, mediation, uncontested divorce, and counseling. Diran & Grey strives to find the best solution to your unique family’s problem.
Pro-Per: Representing Yourself in a California Divorce
You appear before the judge with no lawyers present. This is the least expensive option and is generally chosen by people with limited assets, when child custody is not an issue and conflict is limited. This can be a low-cost option if both partners agree on a settlement and can navigate the court requirements. However, we have gotten many cases in which people tried this process, paid court fees and went through enormous time and effort only to find that they made mistakes on paperwork or really had more to resolve than anticipated. Our lawyers offer the cost-efficient option of limited scope representation if you prefer to represent yourself in a pro-per divorce. Limited-scope representation may help you avoid some of the pitfalls of pro-per divorce.
Mediation: Divorce through Negotiations Facilitated by an Attorney
Mediation is appropriate when a divorce is amicable and the Parties agree to negotiate without Court intervention. One of our experienced attorneys meets with both Parties to fairly negotiate child custody, support, and property division. In so doing, the Parties, and not the Court, determine the outcome. It is a cost effective means to resolve and settle any case. This is generally more expensive than pro-per divorce but has many similarities: minimal conflict and, if the couple is able to prepare legal docs, they can be in control of costs and have face-to-face negotiation with each other.
Collaborative Divorce: Two Specialized Attorneys Negotiate the Marriage Dissolution
With collaborative law, each Party retains separate counsel who meet and cooperate in negotiating an outcome much as with mediation. Collaborative law is distinguished by the potential addition of necessary experts such as psychologists and CPA’s to analyze the issues presented.
Litigation: For Contested Divorces, Courtroom Trials may be the Only Option
Here, the parties are distrustful and otherwise unable to communicate or co-operate. The case is fought in Court before a judge. Each Party hires separate attorneys to argue the client’s position and achieve the client’s goal.
