Bettina was highly recommended by my brother in law but I was still not sure about her. As you can understand hiring the "right" attorney to handle your divorce is not an easy decision specially when you're making a very important life changing decision. When I first called her office, Bettina was available for a free consultation; She answered all my questions and helped me to gain confidence.Bettina has a lovely personality and great sense of humor but most important she has experience, knowledge, clear guidance, creativity, ability to negotiate and she has nice and helpful & experienced paralegals too that are there for you as well. In the most challenging moment of my life Bettina delivered! She took my case under difficult circumstances and represented me with integrity. She and her paralegal team (Angelica and Araceli) were responsive and efficient. This experience resulted in a highly satisfactory outcome. I recommend her without reservation, and thank her for her performance. Larry MartinezUSPS Employee
Tips & Advices
Each state has different mandates on how child support is determined. But there are some basic factors that underline how costs are determined in each state, including:
  • Income level of parent that needs to pay support (in the case of joint custody, the costs are determined by income of each party and the percentage of time the child spends with each parent)
  • Financial needs of child
  • Child’s standard of living before the divorce occurred
This is a divorce in which one party does not have to prove that the other’s actions lead to a deterioration of the marriage. The reason for divorce is listed as "irreconcilable differences" or an "irreparable breakdown of the marriage,” meaning the marriage was no longer working and could not be repaired.
Family law attorneys are helpful in cases where the two parties are not on amicable terms. The lawyers can act as intermediaries between the two parties and help them come to any settlement agreements, however long that may take. Lawyers can also help parties navigate tricky state laws regarding settlement agreements and child custody, thus expediting the process.
A contested divorce is one in which the parties cannot agree on either the necessity of the divorce as a whole, or how assets (money, property, etc.) and child custody should be split between them in the divorce. An uncontested divorce is when the parties are in agreement on how assets and child custody will be split between them. These divorces can sometimes be handled without hiring a lawyer.
It is possible for a couple to get a divorce without hiring a family law attorney. If the two parties are in agreement on how finances, child custody, properties, etc., will be split, then they can file the necessary court documents themselves and avoid the services of a lawyer.
