Most cases of family conflict are never easy to sort out and the reason for needing the service of an attorney is because the issues cannot be solved between the parties by themselves. Without a family law attorney, you will have to use the Californian legal system to help you through the difficult times.
Partners Do Have Some Agreement
One question that a married or unmarried couple often do agree on is that they are no longer compatible and need to live separate lives. However, life is rarely as easy as just going one’s separate ways, unless of course there are no financial issues and no children to consider.
Difficult Cases Involve Children, Finance, and Assets
Some of the most difficult family law cases are when the conflict is so severe that no reasonable agreement can be reached by the two parties involved. This often occurs when there are several children involved, joint assets including a house, and savings in the bank. Neither of the two parties wishes to relinquish hold of these things, even if it makes the separation process far easier.
Often, both parties think that they have an equal entitlement to all the components that have made up the family unit and each part of family life has its monetary value. Regardless of whether one party was taking care of the children while the other was out earning a cash income to support the material needs of the family unit.
Knowing your legal situation regarding the splitting up of the family unit, including the distribution of assets, ongoing care of the children, and whether spousal support is required is absolutely essential in order to fairly distribute assets and ensure good parenting for the children.
The California legal system has all the necessary laws that help to determine the situation of the family unit and who gets what and who does what after the divorce has been finalized. Family law cases are sensitive and the court always reaches its final decision based on these laws, which serve the best interest of all the parties involved in the divorce.
It might not serve to solve the emotional turmoil encountered but it will take into consideration all the aspects of child parenting and the distribution of joint family assets as well as deciding if any further spousal support is necessary.
