How to Maintain Control and Influence over Your Divorce

On Behalf of | Jan 7, 2020 | Divorce

How can you maintain control and influence over your divorce in Carlsbad?  What should your strategy look like if you wish to complete your divorce in Carlsbad, Encinitas or Oceanside in the shortest possible time frame and in a cost-effective manner?

There are two primary issues to keep in mind as you enter the process of a divorce in Carlsbad: emotion and venue.  Most clients wish to maintain as much influence as possible over the outcome of their divorce.  The majority of those who file for divorce are looking to accomplish the process in a timely and efficient way.

Emotion is one of the keys to both of these issues.  The cost and time associated with a divorce is directly related to the emotional skills of both parties, as well as their ability to set aside the complex emotions one must experience during the process of a divorce in order to negotiate resolution and reach sound decisions.

Emotional decisions are not often good decisions.  The challenges which arise during the process of a divorce can result in lifelong impact.  The Certified Family Law Specialists at Burke & Domercq, APC work with our clients to help them to set aside emotion whenever possible while working to get to the core of an issue in relation to their own goals and objectives.

The second concept relating to control and influence over the process is venue.  Negotiations between the parties themselves and their legal representatives provides the greatest level of influence and control for each party.  Mediation is an option which retains a high level of influence, however, much of the control of the process is surrendered to a neutral third party whose task is to help the parties to reach consensus and ultimately agreement on the issues at hand.

Ultimately litigation before North County family law courts may be necessary in order to protect our client’s goals and objectives and matters of principle.  This strategy could accomplish your goals, but it places all of the control in the hands of a complete stranger – the judge.

Rulings in an Oceanside, Encinitas or Carlsbad divorce case are rarely “win or lose.”  They are usually crafted to make both parties feel like they have given up substantial ground.  This is how a judge works to ensure a fair result – both parties feel as if they lost a bit in the decision.

Mediation and litigation will add to both the time it takes to complete your divorce as well as the ultimate cost.  The attorneys at Burke & Domercq, APC do not believe in creating or fanning the flames of discontent between the parties.  We work to accomplish our client’s goals and objectives as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.  If this can be accomplished through negotiation or mediation we will do everything possible to find common ground an seek agreement.

Each of our Certified Family Law Specialists has decades of experience before Carlsbad’s family law courts.  We are proven trial attorneys who aggressively advocate our client’s interests before the court when necessary to accomplish those objectives.
