Divorce is complicated and can be messy. It is not something that anyone plans on happening when they get married. However, divorce is often the solution necessary for both parties to move on with their lives. At the Law Offices of Ronald K. Stitch, we are dedicated to helping clients going through this difficult process. Our Thousand Oaks divorce attorneys will analyze all aspects of your case and handle everything for you.
Thousand Oaks divorce cases can be complex
Unfortunately, not all marriages go well. For various reasons, married couples may choose to get a divorce. According to the Statistical Atlas, around 11% of the Thousand Oaks population is divorced. Even though this is a common issue facing many people in the area, the issues that need to be handled can become complex.
Whether a divorce is contested or uncontested, there are several important issues to consider:
- The distribution of all marital assets
- The separation of marital debts
- Whether spousal support will be necessary
If there are minor children involved in the separation, then there are even more issues that need to be determined when a divorce occurs. This includes ensuring child support is properly calculated, making sure custody agreements are finalized, and arranging a visitation schedule for a non-custodial parent.
When one or more of the issues discussed above are contested by a spouse, the process can become contentious. By having a Thousand Oaks divorce attorney by your side, you are ensuring that you have an advocate on your side. Your attorney will not be emotionally attached to the situation like you are, which is good for decision making.
You could go through mediation
One option we offer at the Law Offices of Ronald K. Stitch is mediation. A mediator is often helpful in a divorce case because it is less expensive and keeps the process out of the court system. Mediation is done by a qualified mediator, which we have in our firm. This person works with both parties to discuss all of the matters listed above and move towards a finalized agreement.
You may need to make modifications
When a couple gets divorced, the lives of both parties will inevitably change. There may be job changes, relocations, financial difficulties, and more. When that happens, modifications may need to be made to one or more aspects of a finalized divorce, including child support, spousal maintenance, child custody, and more. We can help you petition for a modification through the California courts.
