Helping Clients Resolve Difficult Issues So They Can Move On
Divorce (aka dissolution of marriage) does not need to be a difficult and protracted struggle. It can be an experience in which you and your spouse reach a peaceful agreement so you can move on with your lives. It is, however, important to make sure your rights are protected.
At the law firm of Lvovich & Szucsko, P.C., our San Francisco Bay Area divorce attorneys help clients seek positive resolutions to divorce issues such as the following:
- Division of property: Under California community property law, most assets (and debts) acquired by either spouse during marriage must be divided upon divorce. We are experienced at helping clients pursue fair outcomes with respect to all types of assets, including real estate, retirement accounts and small business ownership interests.
- Spousal support: In California, the courts can award temporary or permanent spousal support (aka alimony) in cases where one spouse has become economically dependent on the other during marriage. Our firm helps clients pursue and oppose spousal support.
- Child custody and support : If you and your spouse have children, their care and support will undoubtedly be one of the key issues in your divorce. Our attorneys can help you pursue arrangements that protect your children’s best interests and your parental rights.
When couples cannot agree and leave these decisions to a judge, they are seldom happy with the results. Courts on the whole prefer to have couples resolve divorce issues through out-of-court settlements — one reason they frequently require mediation before taking a case to trial.
Our divorce lawyers can help you negotiate from a position of strength by ensuring that you are treated fairly and that you understand your legal rights. If it is necessary to take your case to trial, we have the litigation experience to diligently pursue the results you deserve.
