A Steadfast Ally During Your Divorce Or Separation

Although you may feel that you have no other options, deciding to divorce or separate from your spouse can be difficult. If you are a parent, your responsibility to your children can add another layer of complexity to an already tough situation.

I understand the anxiety that you feel when you contemplate divorce or separation because I’ve lived through family law issues as well. At Amaral Law, I use this experience and my professional background to identify the legal approach that addresses your needs. You can depend on me to remain by your side throughout your legal journey.

Your Advocate During Separation

If you are not ready to dissolve your marriage bond in California, separating from your spouse may give you the time and space you want to contemplate your future. I can help you fulfill all requirements in this process, including:

  • Filing paperwork with the court, including petitions and responses
  • Establishing terms for your custody, financial support and property division
  • Obtaining the court order that declares that you are legally separated

Although the separation process is not as intricate as the divorce process, it is vital that you secure terms in a separation agreement that protect your interests. Should you decide to pursue divorce, your separation agreement will affect your leverage in divorce negotiations.
