In the state of California, you can either get a contested or uncontested divorce. Depending on your unique situation, there could be benefits for either process. Both processes, however, require a 6-month waiting period to complete. Our family law attorney can help you figure out what the best course of action for you will be.

Contested Divorce

There are a few reasons that you might want to consider obtaining a contested divorce. If your spouse has abused you or your children or has been unfaithful, you have strong grounds for a contested divorce. In these proceedings, we will fight for your rights and future by seeking a fair and just division of property and assets as well as child custody and support. Our attorney will not back down from a challenge and is dedicated to serving you how you see fit. 

Uncontested Divorce

If you and your spouse agree that it is time for you both to move on, you may want to consider an uncontested divorce. In these proceedings, we will come to an agreement on the division of property as well as a plan for child custody and support. Whichever course of action you choose, our family law attorney is here to advocate for you and lead you to a happier future. Contact our law firm in Newport Beach, California, to get started.

Child Custody & Support

Your children’s quality of life and safety is very important to us. After dissolving your marriage, your needs deserved to be accommodated. We will fight for the best outcome possible when creating a child support and custody plan. If you are a father, we can represent you for various paternity cases, such as establishing paternity, modifications, and more.

Prenuptial Agreements

Before getting married, you may want to create a plan just in case you and your spouse ever get divorced. By signing a prenuptial agreement, you can protect your assets, property, and income from being split up during the divorce proceedings. In order to come to a prenuptial agreement, you and your future spouse must disclose all financial information to each other in writing and review it, either alone or with an attorney, for seven days. Our family law attorney at Hanke & Williams, APC can help you protect what you’ve earned. Consult with us by reaching out today.
