DIVORCE ATTORNEY IN VENTURA COUNTY
DISSOLVING A MARRIAGE IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA

 

Divorce Page ImageDivorce is no simple process. When two spouses decide to get divorced, they must separate aspects of their lives that have become legally intermeshed through marriage. For example, it will need to be determined who will get to keep what through property division, such as:

  • House
  • Car
  • Furniture
  • Retirement savings
  • Spousal support

 

If the spouses have children together, the divorce becomes all the more complex, as child support and child custody will need to be arranged. The process of completing the divorce process can go one of two ways—the spouses can either negotiate and agree on the terms outside of court (sometimes through mediation), or they can end up having their divorces settled in court.
