Family law includes divorce, custody and visitation, child and spousal support, and adoption, including adult and stepparent adoption.
California is a community property state, which means that all assets acquired during the marriage are considered "community property" and are equally owned by both parties.
All financial obligations (debts) accumulated during your marriage are also considered community debt, even if the debt was incurred by only 1 of you or even if a credit card was in the name of 1 spouse or partner only.
After deciding to end your marriage, it is advisable to plan your case ahead of time.
Planning before you start can save you time and money as you go through the court process.

Is it possible that both parties will agree to mediation?
Mediation is a process in which an impartial third-party mediator facilitates the resolution of a dispute by promoting voluntary agreement by the parties. Today many couples are turning to mediation to resolve their disputes and negotiate the terms of their divorce. Same Day Legal suggests mediation services for all parties that are willing to discuss this as an option.
