How can Burke & Domercq help you keep more money in a divorce? Can having the representation of our Certified Family Law Specialists actually save you money during a divorce?
Most Californians attempt to begin the divorce process on their own in an attempt to manage a cost-effective divorce. The Superior Court notes that more than 80% of cases filed in divorce cases do not initially involve a lawyer. The Court also notes that less than half of these cases are completed without an attorney. The vast majority of cases filed without an attorney take more than a year to complete, much longer than necessary.
The reality borne out by these statistics and by the experiences of most couples who attempt to file their own divorce is doing so actually substantially increases the cost of their divorce and substantially extends the time required to complete it.
A local Judge recently noted “I always ask the parties how long they’ve been trying to complete their divorce. Unfortunately, the answer is more than a year in almost every case.”
The reality in divorce is counter-intuitive: Our Certified Specialists will help you to keep more money in a divorce and complete the process more quickly and efficiently than if you try to do it on your own.
How is this possible?
The largest sources of genuine cost for most of these couples is the actual cost of resolving areas of disagreement and the time they have to take off of work to seek help from the free resources provided by the Court. The lines at the resource center are long (forming very early each morning) and are limited for each visit. Usually after months and months of failed attempts to resolve challenges and complete viable paperwork the parties simply give up and wind up having to hire an attorney and start over anyway.
The resolution of disagreement over complex issues such as child custody and parenting time, spousal support and the division of community property is the greatest source of expense in any divorce. Our Certified Specialists help couples to resolve areas of disagreement by providing insight and guidance based upon our legal skill and knowledge as well as the insight afforded by decades of experience and expertise in similar cases right here in Carlsbad.
