Being an experienced family law attorney practicing in the Inland Empire, throughout San Bernardino County, Riverside County, Los Angeles County, and Orange County, I speak with many people about the divorce process. I consult with hundreds of people throughout the year and often people have similar questions. One question a potential client often asks is whether or not he or she can stop their divorce. There are various reasons why someone would want to stop their divorce whether it’s because of reconciliation, reconsideration, or timing. Whatever the reason is, there are certain situations in which the divorce process cannot be stopped and there are also several ways end the divorce process.
How easy is it to get divorced in California? Not as easy as you might think. As an experienced divorce attorney in the Inland Empire, working in San Bernardino County, Riverside County, Los Angeles County, and Orange County, I answer a lot of questions regarding “how to get a divorce.” Most people I talk with are shocked to learn that there are several steps to be completed before their divorce can be finalized. These individuals often believe step one, which is filing the Petition for Dissolution, is all that is required. Unfortunately, that is not the case. They are often also surprised to learn that each case takes a different path, depending on the parties and the issues in the case.
As an experienced family law attorney in the Inland Empire, practicing in San Bernardino County, Riverside County, Orange County, and Los Angeles County, I would advise any person considering divorce to speak to an attorney. The divorce process is different for every person, but a conversation with a divorce attorney at the beginning of the process can help educate you and, hopefully, help make the process less intimidating and less difficult. I have helped litigants at every stage – before marriage with premarital agreements, during marriage with post-nuptial agreements, during separation with mediation, and after separation with legal separation and divorce. From the hundreds of people I have helped, I know that having an understanding of the what, why, when, and how of divorce gives people confidence and ultimately results in a better outcome for that person.
