Fullerton Divorce Attorney

There may be no such thing as an “easy” divorce, but with the right lawyer you can at least simplify the process. The dissolution of a marriage is a serious endeavor that requires official legal actions and often a great deal of work on your part. From filing the initial paperwork to entering into negotiations with your soon-to-be-ex spouse, divorce can be stressful. At Boyd Law, we work with clients to make divorce as painless as possible.

Is Divorce in Fullerton the Right Move for Your Family?

According to the most recent census, there were 23,530 households with married couples (opposite and same-sex) in Fullerton. This represents more than 51% of all households in the city. With such a large number of marriages and partnerships, it is no surprise that hundreds of people file for divorce in Fullerton every year. Reconciliation is great whenever possible, but in some relationships divorce is the best or only option.

Before you decide on divorce, consider your other options. If instead you legally separate, you and your spouse can live separate lives and abide by legal rules for matters such as child custody, yet you will still technically be married in the eyes of the law. Legal separation can be advantageous if there is a chance of reconciliation, or if there are issues such as health insurance that make more sense as a married couple. Talk to our family law attorneys about all your options. If you know you want a divorce, we can start on filing in Fullerton right away.
