How does an attorney with decades of experience serve your interests in a Carlsbad or North County divorce? The majority of Californians initially attempt to file their divorce without legal representation. Unfortunately, less than half of these are able to successfully complete their divorce. A local judge was recently quoted:
“I ask everyone who appears before me how long they’ve been trying to get a divorce. The answer is almost always longer than a year.”
Getting a divorce is much more difficult than getting married. How can an experienced Carlsbad Certified Family Law Specialist make a significant difference in the outcome of your divorce? The short answer is: time, money and less emotional duress.
The attorneys at Burke & Domercq have extensive experience in our local family law courts. Our extensive trial experience and successful track record help our clients in many ways.
The most important thing you need to know is that your divorce cannot be completed until every aspect contained within the separation agreement is resolved.
This includes everything from child custody and parenting time, issues of child support and spousal support and division of community property to the valuation and division of business assets and retirement accounts. An attorney with decades of experience helps you to understand the process while providing creative and proven ideas for resolving challenges and moving forward.
The second thing you need to know is the cost of your divorce is directly associated with the amount of disagreement between you and your former spouse on every item in the separation agreement.
Our experience provides insight and real-world advice on proven strategies to resolve areas of disagreement efficiently while accomplishing your goals and objectives. There are many strategies to manage both time and cost as we help to you to move through this process and complete your divorce.
Most issues are resolved through effective negotiation. Our attorneys work proactively to represent your interests while seeking common ground with the other party. Our goal is to reach agreement based upon our skill and extensive experience.
Mediation is another effective tool. When parties are intransigent or unable to reach agreement during negotiations, mediation can provide a more productive environment designed to create a non-confrontational conversation while resolving core issues, often in a more timely and cost-efficient manner than litigation before a judge. An attorney with decades of experience like the divorce and family law attorneys at Burke & Domercq understand the importance of resolving conflict, not adding fuel to the fire.
The third thing you to know is emotion almost always leads to a poor decision in the long term.
We work to help our clients to work through and past their anger, frustration and other emotions. Setting aside emotion when considering the pros and cons of any decision will lead to a better outcome.
We understand the natural desire to complete the process in the shortest period of time and at a reasonable cost.

The ultimate outcome should provide a solid foundation for you to move forward with your life.
