Divorce Attorney in Upland
Helping California Residents Obtain a Fresh Start
The decision to end a marriage is never an easy one, but it is sometimes unavoidable. Once this decision is made by either spouse, each party should take the necessary legal steps to protect their assets and minor children. At Deccan Law, our attorney can effectively guide you through this process to ensure the fair representation and advocacy of your best interests and goals.
How Do I File for Divorce in California?
Once you have decided that divorce is the correct option for your situation, you must file the paperwork necessary to begin this legal proceeding. The exact forms could vary depending on the courthouse you choose, but our Upland divorce lawyer will ensure you complete and file the appropriate documents.
After you have filed the paperwork, you must serve the other party with papers to allow them to respond.
Once there has been a response, California law requires both parties to disclose all :
• Assets • Debts • Income • Marital Expenses
Once the pertinent information is exchanged, the parties can either work on a settlement together or with the help of a judge.

California’s Community Property Laws
California is one of nine states in the nation to utilize community property laws. This means that the court assume all property acquired during the marriage is owned equally by both spouses and must be divided equitably. Equitable distribution of property does not always mean items are divided down the middle, rather the court determines what would be the fairest distribution.
If you have acquired more assets than your spouse during your marriage and would like to protect your interests, you may benefit from a postnuptial agreement. Additionally, you and your spouse may be able to divide property without court intervention if you can agree on the particulars of who gets what item.
Do I Need an Attorney?
If you are involved in a California divorce case, consulting an experienced attorney is highly encouraged. Court procedures and laws can be complex, especially if you have significant assets, a pre- or postnuptial agreement, or minor children.
