Realizing that divorce is the best course of action for you and your spouse can be shocking. While this revelation can be difficult to process, sometimes the dissolution of a marriage is in the best interests of all parties involved. At Miranda, Magden & Miranda, LLP, our divorce lawyers near Gonzalez understand that divorce has an enormous impact on your emotions, finances, and more. We have the experience and knowledge to guide you through this complex process with compassion and dignity.

Working Through Issues in a Gonzalez Divorce

The issues that must be addressed during a divorce vary with each couple. However, some issues are common to most California divorces. Our Gonzalez divorce lawyers provide representation and resolution of various issues, including: 

  • Child Custody. Perhaps the most concerning issue for parents of minor children in a divorce is how custody of the couple’s children will be divided. In California, parents are encouraged to create parenting plans together that outline physical and legal custody arrangements. If the parents cannot reach a suitable agreement on their own, the court will decide on a custody arrangement based on the best interests of the child.
  • Child Support. Child support is another common issue in divorces involving children. Courts recognize that after a separation, both parents have an obligation to provide financial support for their children, and this is addressed through child support allocations. In most cases, but not all, child support is paid by the non-custodial parent to the primary caregiver.
  • Spousal Support. Spousal support, also known as spousal maintenance or alimony, may be ordered when one party in a marriage lacks the resources or means to support themselves after a divorce and the other spouse has the ability to help ease this burden.
  • Property Division. In California, marital property – that is, property that is acquired by either spouse during the course of a marriage – must be divided equally in a divorce. Like most issues in a divorce, parties can make decisions among themselves about how property will be split. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, the decision will fall to a judge.

Why You Should Work with Our Gonzalez Divorce Lawyers

When terminating your marriage, working with skilled divorce lawyers serving Gonzalez can be a critical component in preserving your best interests. Our team will assist you in:

  • Filing for divorce. Initiating the divorce process requires filling out multiple documents, submitting them to the court clerk, and serving your spouse. This is a legal process and one that can be complicated and time consuming.
  • Understanding the law. Your marriage must be dissolved in conjunction with California law, and issues in the divorce must be resolved in accordance with the law as well. We help clients understand the law and their rights under it.
  • Negotiating with your spouse. There are many different methods for resolving a divorce, including collaborative divorce, mediation, litigation, and negotiation. We help you to work with your spouse, representing you in all interactions, to reach a settlement agreement that works for all parties.
