The breaking up of a marriage is one of the most difficult events many people will ever go through. Having an attorney who understands the emotional impact a break-up has on her clients, and not just the legal impact, can ease the process. Attorney Candice Madanipour knows divorce is a lot more than the division of assets, paperwork, and what happens in the courtroom, and will treat the ending of your marriage with the respect and sensitivity it deserves.
Southern California Divorce Attorney
When it comes to divorce in California, there are two ways the process can go. One is an amicable divorce, in which the parties negotiate all aspects of the separation and come to an agreement without the intervention of the court. The other is a contested divorce, in which one or both parties refuse to come to terms.
For most people, an amicable divorce is the preferred way to go. When divorcing parties can decide how to divide their assets, on child custody, visitation, and support, and other matters on their own, the process goes more quickly and the details of the divorce may be able to be kept off the public record. Generally, divorcing parties are also more satisfied with the divorce agreement, because, even though they may have to make some compromises, they get complete say in how the situation plays out.
If your divorce is contested, you must take your arguments to the court and put them before a judge, and the judge will have final say on who gets what and what happens to your children. If your ex-partner is being unreasonable, though, or you feel as though you are making too many compromises during negotiations, a contested divorce may be preferable.
Pre- and Post-Nuptial Agreements
While no one likes to think about divorce on the way to the altar or when they are newly married, pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements are one of the best means the legal system has of protecting you and your personal assets in the case of a divorce. With a pre- or post-nuptial agreement, you can prevent a divorce from becoming a major legal battle.
