How Can I End a Same Sex Marriage in California?

The first thing to remember about your same sex marriage is that there are several ways that you can end it in California: divorce, a legal separation, and an annulment.

A divorce is the only way to legally recognize that your marriage existed, and to end it. With a divorce, you can ask the court for orders regarding things like child custody, child support, spousal support, and the division of property. There are certain requirements for obtaining a divorce in California.

My spouse and I are not agreeing; therefore, we need to explore the options of creating a Postmarital Agreement in California.

Postnuptial agreements are created by the couple involved and their attorneys. Because both parties are on opposing sides of the agreement, it is important to hire separate attorneys and work with them to understand how the law can work in their favor.

In California, a postnuptial agreement needs to meet certain requirements.

First, a postmarital agreement needs to be in writing. The courts can not enforce an oral postnuptial agreement. Both spouses will need to sign the written agreement, and it will need to be notarized.

How will the out come of a DV case or conviction affect the outcome of my family law case in Orange County?

A violation of a domestic violence restraining order or a conviction in your domestic violence case can affect the outcome of any pending family law cases that you may have in the California courts. It can also be the source of a new family law case, and may have a negative effect on the outcome for you.

• Divorces (dissolution), legal separations and annulments are grouped into one category,
• Paternity cases,
• Child support cases,
• Child custody cases,
• Elder abuse and dependent adult abuse cases,
• Domestic violence cases.

What exactly Does an ATRO Do for me in Orange County, California?

An automatic temporary restraining order restrains both involved parties from taking certain actions that could negatively affect the other party in the outcome of the divorce.

How Do I Modify My California Spousal Support Order?

Because your existing spousal support order is legally enforceable until a new one has been created and signed by a judge, it is important to have it legally modified in the case that you can no longer afford to pay it. Even if you think that your loss in income is temporary, or you don’t want to deal with the legal process right now, it is always better to act sooner rather than later. You cannot approach a judge later and ask them to retroactively modify your support order in California.

Spousal support is not meant to bankrupt the paying spouse; it is simply meant to allow both spouses to maintain the same standard of living they would have had if they had remained married or in a registered domestic partnership. So, if as the supporting spouse, you can no longer afford spousal support due to a loss in income, the same would have occurred had you still been married or in a registered domestic partnership: you and your spouse would both suffer a loss in income. It is always a good idea to discuss your situation with an attorney and have your court order modified if your circumstances change.

The judge will try to determine what is in the Child's best interest when it comes to Custody in Orange County California.

Child custody in California should always be determined based on the child’s best interests. If you cannot come to an agreement outside of court as to the best way to handle the custody of your child, it may be better for the child to let the courts decide on a custody agreement rather than giving in to the demands or wishes of your child’s other parent.

In court, both parties will have a chance to share their opinions. Remember that although you may want your child to spend more time with you than with the other parent, your concerns should be related to protecting the child’s best interests, not what you may prefer for your child to do or what is more convenient for you.

Do I Need a Premarital Agreement in California?

I am not wealthy, do we still need a Premarital Agreement in California?
Although many people believe that premarital agreements are only for wealthy couples or for those parties that enter into a marriage with a lot of assets and property, this is not the case. A premarital agreement can also protect you or your spouse from being stuck with the debt of the other party in the case of a divorce, or it can ensure that children from previous relationships receive the separate property or assets to which they are entitled.

Finding an Attorney for the Dissolution of a Same Sex Relationship in California
Whether you are ending a same sex marriage or a same sex domestic partnership in California, you have several options: a divorce, also called a dissolution, a legal separation, or an annulment. It is also possible to dissolve both a same sex marriage and a same sex registered domestic partnership at the same time.

To find an attorney who can help you with your dissolution, legal separation, or annulment, your best option is to ask those in your local community for recommendations. To find the best family lawyer for your divorce, you will want to find one who has experience in the type of law that your case will involve. For example, if you are dissolving a same sex marriage, you will want a lawyer with experience dissolving same sex marriages.

Due to some of the extenuating circumstances surrounding same sex divorces and the dissolution of registered domestic partnerships in California and the jurisdiction of certain court orders that are issued with a divorce, you may want to find a lawyer who has specific experience with couples who are most similar to you and your partner or spouse.

We have been married for over 10 years, does that mean the alimony will last forever?
Spousal support is usually not meant to last forever. Even what is sometimes called ‘permanent spousal support’ is really only ‘long term spousal support’. In California, the ten-year rule is not a legal term; it is simply an arbitrary divide that separates most marriages of long duration from marriages that are not of long duration. However, marriages that are shorter than ten years can also be considered marriages of long duration in some situations.

Thomas Connor has been practicing law since the early 1970's. I began practicing law in 2000 and Mr. Connor became my mentor. He assisted me with my first two Petty Theft and DUI matters. He and I have since worked on Juvenile Dependency matters and I find him to be an excellent, fair and honest attorney. Over the years we have been on opposing teams and every time I found him to be a worthy opponent. I would recommend him for Criminal, Juvenile, Personal Injury and Family Law matters.
