Cost Effective Divorce Strategies for North County San Diego

Pierre Domercq Divorce

The majority of those who file for divorce in North County are quite concerned about the cost of the divorce itself. Nothing bears this out more than the fact more than 70% of Californians attempt to handle a divorce on their own and file without representation.
Reality check #1: less than half of these cases are able to complete the process on their own, and most waste substantial time and even more money in terms of time off of work and resolving areas of dispute than if they had worked with an attorney from the outset. A local family law judge recently reported most self-represented clients he asked had been seeking a divorce for well over a year and had spent a substantial amount of time and money during the process.
The economical key to divorce lies in the resolution of areas of disagreement. If the two parties are in complete agreement of literally every aspect of their divorce it is an inexpensive task to put these agreements in writing, formulate enforcable documents and complete the divorce.
Reality check number 2: The vast majority of divorce cases in North County have at least a few areas of substantial disagreement between the parties. The parties themselves are not able to negotiate a resolution in these cases. The most common issues involve child custody and parenting time, child support, spousal support or the division of community property including retirement or a closely held family business or professional practice.
