The Value of an Experienced Carlsbad Divorce Attorney

Pierre Domercq Divorce

What is the value of having an experienced North County and Carlsbad divorce attorney on your side? Why should you have an attorney at all? Can’t you file a divorce on your own in California?
The answer is yes, and in fact over 80% of Californians attempt to do just that. The California Superior Courts locally will also tell you that more than half of these fail to complete their divorce without an attorneys, and the process for cases of self-represented or DIY divorces will take longer than a year to complete.
The experienced Carlsbad divorce attorneys at Burke & Domercq bring value to the equation in many ways. Time. Do you value your time? Do you have days and days to take off of work, go to the Court at 5 or 6 in the morning to get in line to see the “free” advice group on a first-come first-served basis? Do you have more than a year to complete your divorce and get through this emotional process and move forward with your life?
Our attorneys understand you don’t want a lawyer to inflame the arguments between the two of you increasing the cost and time associated with your divorce. It is our experience that allows us to suggest alternatives to help our clients resolve areas of dispute or disagreement and find solutions so that they can accomplish their divorce in a shorter period of time – closer to the 6 months minimum in many cases. We save you the missed work and wasted time of going to the free help clinic and waiting in Court for hours only to find out your paperwork isn’t right and there are still issues that must be resolved in order to complete your divorce.
Money. How can we save you money? As we recommend solutions and negotiate on your behalf we eliminate the need for expensive litigation. We help to resolve differences, find common ground and find a solution the parties can live with. We have experienced paralegals who prepare documents cost-effectively while having our attorneys review them to ensure accuracy and enforceability. We get things right up front, reducing the need to suffer the cost and hassle of going back to court in the future to battle out post-decree disputes.
Daniel Burke is a seasoned and proven North County family law mediator with decades of experience. Mediation is a cost-effective and timely strategy to resolve disputes and find common ground in a non-confrontational environment. Couples who reach agreement in mediation are much more likely to abide by these agreements once the divorce is completed. This reduces the cost of litigation during the course of your divorce, and reduces the cost for resolving arguments after the divorce is completed.
Emotion. We provide sound advice and counsel to our clients. We help them to think about the things that matter most, and the goals and objectives that will still be important 3, 5 or 10 years down the road. We help our clients to understand that decisions based upon emotion are almost always poor decisions, and work with them to help them through a process that actually reduces the emotional toll of the divorce while providing comfort and confidence.
Mediation provides tools that help the parties to work through things down the road. This is especially important for those who will share parenting time and child custody. The skills learned during mediation reduce the emotional cost during the divorce itself, and make life much more productive and cooperative after the divorce is completed.
