Divorce When You Don't Know Where To Turn

Bakersfield Divorce Lawyer

Dedicated Representation in Kern, Tulare & Fresno Counties

Divorce is one of life’s most stressful experiences. The breakup of a marriage and often a family can be painful. Making decisions about how to disentangle yourself from your spouse physically, emotionally, and financially can be difficult at best. For parents, your future relationship and time spent with children is often a primary concern. For couples who have been in long-term marriages, dividing complex assets, business interests, retirement accounts, and more can become an overwhelming task. 

At Bobby Cloud Law, we understand the challenges you face. We have been assisting clients through the divorce process since 2010. Over those years, we have developed strategies designed to reduce stress, expense, and the adversarial nature of divorce trials. Our approach to divorce is to help you find the most amicable and cost-effective ways to reach divorce settlements that you can live with, that protect your rights and interests, and position you to be able to move forward on a strong foundation. However, where necessary, we are always prepared to vigorously represent you in court.

Divorce in California

California employs the “no-fault” basis for divorce. This means neither spouse has to prove any type of wrongdoing on the part of the other. Your divorce is generally based on “irreconcilable differences” with no hope of restoring the relationship. This can save you the time, expense, and aggravation of having to prove spousal misconduct in court. However, unless you and your spouse agree on all of the issues involved in your divorce, courtroom intervention may still be needed.

The main factors that must be settled in your divorce include:

At Bobby Cloud Law, we can help you reach a marital settlement agreement on the issues in your divorce that can then be submitted to the court for approval. This helps you avoid litigation. 

We provide:

  • Pre-divorce mediation in which we act as a neutral third party to help you and your spouse negotiate the terms of your divorce. 
  • Collaborative law is a divorce resolution method that allows you and your spouse to work out a settlement agreement with the help of your separate and respective attorneys along with any other professionals needed. These can include accountants, child therapists, real estate and business appraisers, tax experts, and others to help you make informed decisions. 

California provides ways in which you can streamline the divorce process in certain situations. A “summary dissolution” can be sought for couples seeking uncontested divorces who have no children and few assets. For others, a “default divorce with a written agreement” may be secured by attaching your marital settlement agreement to your divorce petition. Our divorce attorney can advise you of all the options available to you that may meet your needs, and goals, and for which you are eligible.
