Woohoo! Based on the results, it seems like your divorce is likely going to be smooth sailing! Now, it is possible that your case can be complex, yet amicable. Don't let the word "complex" freak you out! It just means there's some more effort and time that may need to be devoted to your divorce, but it's still likely capable of being handled outside of court! If you feel like your divorce is also going to be smooth sailing, we suggest holding off on needing to hire an attorney. You can always still speak to one, just for peace of mind, but keep in mind, the average cost of divorce, in California, is $17,000, if minor children are not involved.85% of all family law litigants, in California, are self-represented, So, again, if you feel like your divorce can be amicable, you can 100% do it on your own & save your money for bigger and better things!Below is the divorce workbook to help you through your divorce process! Check it out. You'll love it!
Your Divorce Could Be Somewhat Smooth Sailing, But There's a Possibility It Could Become Hostile
No good or bad news here. It's more of an "up in the air" result. Based on your answers, your divorce could go one way or the other. The more amicable you and your partner are, the more likely your divorce will be handled outside of court. On the flip side, if you and your partner will not see eye to eye on a few issues, and compromise ends up no longer being a possibility, you'll likely end up in court.Our suggestion is to always try to keep things out of court! Court is an overwhelming journey & if it can be avoided, we hope you and your spouse do everything you can to avoid it. If you know that you and your spouse are likely going to need the Court to step into your case to make orders, then we suggest you speak with an attorney immediately.Start first by getting the workbook below. Walk through it and try to handle as much of it as possible, on your own. But, follow your gut! If you know you just need an attorney, skip the workbook, and consult with an attorney!
