| Your Advocate In California Divorce

There may be no other event in your life that is more difficult to navigate than a divorce. The future can often seem very uncertain, and legal issues quickly can become extremely contentious. During times like these, having an experienced attorney beside you can help to remove some of the stress and can help to ensure that your interests are protected.

DivorceAt Contreras Law Firm, our attorneys understand the challenges clients are facing during these difficult times. We will take the time to fully understand your concerns, expectations and tailor a strategy around them. We will explain the laws that govern California family law matters and give you an honest assessment of what you can expect as your case moves forward.

The Divorce Process In California

Clients often want to know more about the divorce process itself. What they need to do and when they need to do it in order to keep their divorce on track. We explain the process, and walk you through what we can do to help with each step. Our main focus is to make sure that you have a clear idea of what to expect as your case moves forward.

In most divorces, there are two main issues of contention that take the most time to resolve: Child custody determinations and the division of marital property. These questions can cause a case to become much more complicated, and may require the courts to become involved if you and your spouse cannot reach an agreement on your own.

When we learn more about your case, we can tell you more about how the law may apply to your situation. We can then work together to decide what is best for your family, and pursue an outcome that is in your best interests.

Every divorce case is unique, with each one having its own set of facts and circumstances.
