| Once a petitioner for dissolution is filed in California, it takes a minimum of six months and a day for
the divorce to be final. Although it is possible to obtain a judgment before that date, the earliest date
that the parties will be identified as single is six months and a day. This is important if one party wants
to remarry. Treviño Law is designed to facilitate that process and give its clients up to date
information about their case.
| Custody and visitation of minor children are issues that are likely to be addressed in most divorce
cases. The divorce court looks at the child's health, safety, and welfare and decides which parent
is most likely to foster a continuing relationship between the non-custodial parent and the child.
After a custody plan is made, child support and spousal support can be ordered. In addition to child
support and spousal support, there are other items the judge will determine including property
division which can be affected by inheritances, or gifts. A divorce lawyer can evaluate the factors
and argue the case effectively.
