Is there a proven cost effective strategy for a Carlsbad divorce?  Most Carlsbad residents are concerned about the cost associated with a divorce in Carlsbad and throughout North County. What is the best strategy to get a divorce in a timely manner and contain the associated costs?

The Certified Family Law Specialists at Burke & Domercq are known for helping clients to achieve a timely divorce. We provide insight and guidance in strategies to help contain costs while achieving the goals and objectives which are important to you.

The primary source of cost in a divorce is not your lawyer.  It is disagreement between the former spouses on any detail contained within the separation agreement.  Every issue associated with your case must be completely resolved before your divorce can be finalized.

There is a proven cost effective strategy for a Carlsbad divorce to help parties who cannot find agreement, or worse are in a hostile posture to find common ground and work through their issues constructively.

If there is very little disagreement the primary task is ensuring that all paperwork is complete, accurate and properly formatted to protect the parties. Our staff is well positioned to help those who believe they are in full agreement and ready to move forward with their divorce. We prepare documents in a prompt and efficient manner.

Many people who think they are in full agreement learn there are issues at several points during the process. Child custody and parenting time disputes, questions about spousal support and child support and even the distribution of community property can lead to an unexpected argument.

The fastest and most effective way we can help in these cases is to provide insight and the benefit of our decades of experience in Carlsbad family law courts to help the former spouses to find common ground. We share strategies that have worked for others in similar circumstances and are usually able to help our client and their former spouse through the difficulties.

In some cases, mediation is an excellent tool to quickly and cost-efficiently resolve areas of disagreement between the parties. Mediation is a non-confrontational environment where a neutral experienced third party (the mediator) guides the parties through a process designed to get to the root of the issue and resolve it constructively.

When parties reach agreement through negotiation or mediation there are several studies which show a greatly increased quality of life after the divorce for both parties.  Those who work in these ways to reach agreement are also much more likely to abide by them after the divorce is completed.  This contributes further significant cost savings as the parties to not have to return to court to seek modification of orders or to resolve disputes when one party fails to uphold these agreements.
