Divorce and Family Law Consulting

Consult with a California Certified Family Law Specialist

aj on your ownMany North County San Diego residents are frustrated by the process of attempting to represent themselves through the divorce process. According to the State of California, more than 80% of the divorces filed with the State are “Pro Per” – legal terminology for the parties representing themselves.  Usually the parties are attempting to get things done as quickly as possible and in a cost-effective manner.  Most divorcing couples have heard horror stories of expensive litigated divorces, and they don’t want external attorneys to drive a wedge between them, and add significant expense to their divorce.

However, in order for a divorce to be completed at the North County San Diego Superior Court or anywhere in the San Diego region, all issues related to the “separation agreement” must be resolved, and associated paperwork must be accurately completed and submitted to the Court. This is quite a complex process, and most well intentioned people start into the process expecting to be able to work through the challenges with the help of free Court supplied self-help centers and facilitators.  After several months of frustration, or worse, an appearance in Court and stern words from a Judge, many people become disillusioned and frustrated.  Where should you turn?
