Divorce Attorneys Castroville

Divorce is a major transition that is likely to directly affect your living situation as well as your financial and parental rights, which makes it a critical matter that requires your focused attention. Because your rights are on the line, working closely with an experienced divorce attorney in Castroville from the outset is in your best interest.

The Terms of Your Divorce

Your divorce will play out in its own uniquely complicated way, and while no two divorces are ever identical to one another, they all address the same divorce terms – as applicable – including:

If you have a valid prenuptial agreement in place, it can directly affect all but your child custody arrangements and child support – unless the terms included exceed the state’s expectations.

The Division of Your Marital Property

California addresses the matter of dividing marital property in divorce according to community property law. As such, those assets and properties that you, your spouse, or both of you together acquired while you were married are considered marital, and generally, they must be divided between you equally upon divorce. Separate property refers to anything either of you owned prior to marriage, but any commingling of separate and marital property can diminish the value of the separate asset. 

Your Child Custody Arrangements

In California, child custody is dealt with in terms of the following:

  • Legal custody, which addresses how you and your ex will go about making primary decisions regarding your children’s upbringing
  • Physical custody, which determines your parenting time schedules

California courts are always guided by the best interests of the children when making child custody determinations, and – barring a serious reason for ruling otherwise – this means maximizing the amount of time the children spend with each parent. 

Child Support

Parents are required to financially support their children throughout their childhoods, and child support payments help to balance this financial responsibility between both parents. Even when parenting time is divided evenly, the parent who earns more typically makes the child support payments.


Alimony is reserved for those California divorces in which one spouse has the financial means to assist the other – if the divorce leaves the recipient of alimony unable to continue supporting themselves financially at a standard of living that is close to the one achieved during the marriage. Alimony is usually ordered for an amount and duration that allows the recipient to acquire the education, training, or job skills necessary to gain greater financial independence.
