Divorce and Legal Separation
It doesn’t matter whether yours is a “friendly” divorce where you and your spouse agree on everything or whether it is “difficult” divorce that has frequent and/or complex litigation. It is a difficult and emotional time and you want to assure that your interests and rights are protected in the process.
The soonest you could be divorced or legally separated is six months and a day from the date that you or your spouse was served with a Summons and Petition. The reality is that sometimes a case resolves sooner than that time, and many times a case can continue for a year or two or even more.
The Stockdale Law Firm, Inc. in El Dorado Hills, led by Managing Attorney Myrlys Stockdale, well let you know what to expect in your divorce or legal separation, and keep you informed each step of the way. We will discuss your options and help you decide which approach is best for you.
We work diligently to avoid unnecessary litigation (and unnecessary emotional stress for our clients) which usually works to lower your legal expenses. It is our Firm’s policy to refrain from escalating conflict unless, because of the nature of the case, it is unavoidable.
If you would like to schedule an initial consultation with one of our Firm’s attorneys to learn how we can help you, please complete this online request form. [Hyperlink to Contact form, 6.1]
