FAQs About Palm Desert, CA Family Law

How much does a family law attorney cost in California?

The cost of a family law attorney in California will vary depending on the specific case and the needs of the client. In some cases, the attorney’s fees may be paid by the client, while in other cases, the attorney’s fees may be paid by the opposing party if that is part of the reward in the case. The only way to obtain an actual cost estimate is to schedule a consultation with an experienced family law attorney to ask specific questions about your case.

Who pays attorney fees in child custody cases in California?

In California, each party is generally responsible for their own attorney fees in child custody cases. However, there may be specific legal circumstances in which the court will order one party to pay the other party’s child custody attorney fees. This is typically only done if one party acts in bad faith or if there is a significant disparity in the parties’ incomes.

How are child support and spousal support decided in California?

In Palm Desert, California, property division and spousal support are decided on a case-by-case basis. The court will consider many insights when making these decisions, including how long the marriage lasted until the request for divorce, the standard of living during the marriage, and each spouse’s earning capacity. The intent is to ensure that each spouse is treated fairly and that the property is divided in an equitable way.

How long does a divorce take in California?

The divorce process in California can take anywhere from a few months to a few years, depending on the case’s specific circumstances. If the parties can reach an agreement on all issues, the divorce can be finalized relatively quickly. However, if the parties cannot agree, the divorce process can take much longer as it must go through the court system. Being prepared can help with the timeline.

What is the cheapest way to get a divorce in California?

The cheapest way to get a divorce in California is to reach an agreement with your spouse on all issues related to the divorce, such as property division, child custody, and spousal support. When two parting spouses are in complete agreement, they can file for a summary dissolution, which is a simplified and expedited divorce process. This is an excellent option for separating couples with no children, minimal assets, and still have strong communication and amicable relationships. However, you should not feel pressured to agree to something you’re not comfortable with just to save money on the divorce process. For example, saving in the short term on attorney’s fees may not be worth it if you end up with an unfair property division in the long run.
