California Divorce and Family Law Issues

Divorce in California encompasses a variety of sticky issues, some more burdensome than others. Unfortunately, there is much more to divorce than simply ending a marriage and each state has its own unique laws pertaining to the issues involved. Some of the matters involved in family and domestic law regarding divorce include:

  • Spousal support
  • Alimony
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Child support
  • Property and asset distribution
  • Division of marital debt
  • Prenuptial agreements

The Hedtke Law Group has the experience to skillfully navigate these issues during the litigation process with your best interest in mind. We offer compassionate, yet candid, discussion of all issues pertaining to your case.

How to Prepare for Divorce in California

Each case is unique and treated on an individual basis. Most divorce cases have extenuating circumstances that must be taken into careful consideration. A divorce cannot be finalized in California for at least six months after the petition is filed. This state law is meant to give a couple time to work out their differences, if possible. Things often happen in the heat of the moment and some couples do reconcile before their divorce is finalized.

Divorce can be a difficult and lengthy process, depending on how complex your issues are. It’s important to have ample representation as soon as possible, even in an uncontested divorce. There are steps you may need to take early on to protect yourself throughout the process. It also helps to start keeping a journal of daily relevant events and keep it in a secure location.
