When It Comes To Divorce, You Have Options

If you are considering divorce, you likely have many questions: How long will it take? What will it cost? Will I get custody of my kids? Do I deserve alimony? Will I have to fight it out in court, or do I have less contentious options?

At the Law Office of Roxana Shayan, you will find answers to your questions. With decades of legal experience in Costa Mesa and elsewhere in Orange County, attorney Roxana Shayan is here to provide the personalized guidance you need to fully understand your divorce options.

Although mediation is not required in California, it is often an excellent way to cut costs while making the divorce process as amicable as possible. However, if litigation is a better choice for your situation, Roxana will let you know. Either way, you can count on her for the representation you require. Call 714-545-4505 today.

What You Need To Know About The Divorce Process

To file for divorce in California, you need to have lived in the state for at least six months. You must also have lived in your current county for at least three months before you file.

If you don't meet these requirements, you can file for legal separation instead of divorce. You may also decide to legally separate instead of divorce for religious reasons or to retain your right to part of your spouse's pension, should he or she passes away.

If you have questions about the process for obtaining a divorce or a legal separation in Orange County, don't hesitate to contact Roxana. She has the detailed knowledge you need.

A Lawyer Can Help You Avoid Critical Mistakes

It's easy to think that divorce is merely a matter of signing a few papers and taking off a wedding ring. The truth is, it's far more complex than that, and any mistake you make could potentially have serious ramifications.

For instance, if you fail to fully disclose all your assets and debts during divorce, your ex-spouse could later petition the courts for the right to those assets — leaving you in a difficult financial spot.

Likewise, you may believe that if the house is in your spouse's name, you don't have any right to it. However, if you were helping to pay the mortgage, it's likely that you do indeed have a right to part of the house's value.

Don't take risks with your financial future — and don't unknowingly give away money that you rightfully deserve. Let Roxana assist you with property division during divorce.
