On Behalf of | Jul 7, 2021 | Divorce

When do you need a Certified Family Law Specialist?  A Certified Family Law specialist has extensive experience, completed extra education and received the recommendations of fellow family law attorneys as well as Judges and Family Court personnel.  Our attorneys have decades of experience in San Diego divorce and family law cases.

The time you need a Certified Family Law Specialist the most in a divorce case is weeks before you intend to file.  Our attorneys will help you to understand and carefully plan each step.  Our proven strategies help to ensure you achieve your goals and objectives while managing the process, time and expense of your divorce or family law matter.

If you have no children, assets of less than $35,000 and have been married for a relatively short period of time it may be possible to complete the divorce process with only a simple review of your paperwork.  However, if your divorce involves children, substantial assets, a business or professional practice or anticipated spousal support you need a Certified Family Law Specialist from Burke & Domercq to protect your interests at every step.

Child custody and parenting time is a serious concern for most who file for divorce in San Diego.  The accurate valuation of a business or other assets is a crucial issue during property division.  If you are concerned about spousal support there are literally dozens of factors which the Court must consider when determining the need for, duration and amount of spousal support.

Retirement accounts, a State retirement plan such as CalSTRS or a pension is another example of why you need a Certified Family Law Specialists.  These issues require a complex legal document known as a Qualified Domestic Relations Order or QDRO.  If the QDRO is not properly and carefully crafted, the plan will not accept it.  Improper documents or the failure to properly manage the issues of retirement accounts and plans in a divorce can result in the loss of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
