Filling for divorce is never an easy decision. It is an emotionally draining experience. Unfortunately the process is often long and involves many procedural steps to properly and efficiently finalize the divorce. The Montes Law Firm can guide you through the procedure so that you can concentrate on your emotional well-being.
The easiest and least complicated divorce is an uncontested divorce. When the two parties can come to an agreement on all of the issues, it is truly an uncontested divorce. If there is community property, both parties must agree on how to divide the property. If there are children, then the parties must agree on all issues concerning the children.
Contested Without Minor Children
The only real issue in these types of divorces is the division of property. An attorney will review the couples assets and classify them to determine the value of the community estate. Most courts will require the couple to attempt to come to an agreement. If an agreement is not reached, then it is up usually up to the judge to make a fair and equitable division of the community estate.
Contested With Minor Children
When children were born during the marriage, even if the child's father is not the same as the husband, the divorce must also dispose of any issues dealing with the children. The more parties are involved the more complex the case becomes.
