At Claery & Hammond, LLP, you can expect to be treated with care and respect.
Our attorneys know firsthand how complicated and emotionally traumatizing
divorce can be, and are here to support you throughout the process.
Here are just a few reasons why you should consider us:
- Our focus is exclusively on divorce & family law.
- Our team has more than 50 years of combined experience.
- We offer each potential client a free case consultation.
It's not easy to separate two lives that have become one, especially when a couple has been together for a number of years, or, have children or extensive property.
- Some of the most common and hotly contested issues that will be addressed during your divorce are spousal support and property division.
These two aspects of divorce affect your very livelihood and can negatively impact your future if not addressed correctly. A skilled Los Angeles divorce attorney from our firm can work to protect your best interests when it comes to these issues.
- Additionally, if you and your spouse have had children together, you will be dealing with the issues of child support, child custody, and visitation rights.
At Claery & Hammond, we understand that you want what's best for your children and to be involved in their lives. We can fight for your rights as a parent to obtain custody of your children, secure a fair child support agreement, and maintain visitation rights with your children.
Failing to File a Response to Divorce Papers
If you are served divorce papers and fail to file a response the time that it allotted to you, this will not dismiss your divorce case. Instead, it will probably move the case forward and the court will assume that you agreed with the conditions of the settlement and approve of the decisions made therein.
As the spouse served with divorce papers, it is essential that you read the entire papers carefully. There may be decisions about child custody, property division, and more which you do not agree with listed in the papers.
When served with divorce papers, the best option is to hire a lawyer right away. With the right attorney on your side, you will be able to inspect the divorce agreement very carefully and highlight any issues that you wish to battle in court. If you are not able to determine any issues that you want to challenge, then you can feel free to let the divorce default, as this is normally a faster way to do things.
