Comprehensive Divorce Representation From A Highly Experienced Family Law Attorney

A divorce, or dissolution of marriage, is the legal process by which the marital union is canceled through a judgment issued by a court of law. This is different from an annulment, which declares the marriage null and void.

When terminating a marriage, the parties will almost always deal with issues of:

Divorce is never easy, but working with the right attorney can make a big difference in both the process and its outcome. In the greater Los Angeles area, you can find the legal help you’re looking for by contacting Furubotten Law, APC. Founding attorney Denise Furubotten brings more than 27 years of experience to each case, as well as in-depth knowledge of California divorce law and a dedication to client success.

Support And Levelheaded Guidance When You Need It Most

The divorce process can be long and complicated and usually requires the help of an attorney at some point. The use of forms and self-help centers at many local courthouses has led to a common misconception that divorce cases are simple, particularly if the parties have reached an agreement concerning how to end the marriage, divide up assets and allocate time with the kids.

Nothing could be farther from the truth. Even parties in short-term marriages with no children should consult an attorney before signing any agreements. While there are some cases that are truly “simple” in nature, most clients are misinformed and incorrectly believe that a case is simple when it is not. The only way to truly know if a case is simple is to speak to a competent divorce attorney.

Apart from the legal complexities, divorces generally involve high emotions from both sides. Parties are facing the failure of a relationship and the uncertainties of what their new future will involve. Divorcing couples are required to make legal decisions that will likely affect them for the rest of their lives. Many people make poor decisions during this time due to the emotional disruption caused by divorce.

Denise and her team have a unique understanding of the emotional and legal issues our clients face during a divorce. She excels at helping clients make the best choices for their futures while remaining sensitive to the emotional challenges during this difficult time.

Offering A Variety Of Representation Options

The team at Furubotten Law also understands that clients do not want a lawyer to needlessly complicate matters that are already straightforward. For cases that require only limited attorney involvement, Ms. Furubotten will steer clients to the most affordable representation options. Full attorney representation is always available for cases involving more complex divorce issues.

All of the firm’s clients must meet with an attorney at least once for a comprehensive consultation. Denise will take the time to discuss your particular issues and concerns, and she will advise you about all property division, child custody, and child and spousal support issues. Information is power, and no client should make any decisions concerning their divorce case without obtaining at least one legal consultation from an attorney.
