Moorpark Divorce Lawyer
Need to file for divorce? Protect your interests with our help.
At our firm, Richard Ross Associates,
we take pride in our 30 years of service to the community in family law and divorce. We have exceptional qualifications
to bring to the table for our clients, and our lead attorney, Mr. Richard
Ross, is a Board Certified Family Law Specialist, one of only a very small
percentage of family lawyers in the state. We have a great breadth of
experience and success in resolving the most difficult divorce cases without
the need for litigation. We offer services for divorcing couples employing
non-adversarial methods, including through
collaborative law. With a background in psychology and interpersonal relations, Mr. Ross
has the ability to bring even the most contentious issues under control
and moving forward to resolution.
Any case that cannot resolve through alternative dispute resolution will
eventually require a trial. Your Moorpark divorce lawyer must be highly
experienced in family court if you hope to have an outcome with a favorable
settlement. Each case must be fully reviewed as the initial step in the
process. After analyzing your situation, our divorce lawyer can advise
you what to expect with regard to the critical issues in your divorce,
property division and
spousal support. The state has issued various formulas that are employed in making decision
about these matters. There are a number of factors that could influence
a court's decision, and we are aware of all of the possibilities that
could arise, and prepare our cases with this in mind.
Reaching a Settlement in Divorce
Your settlement will impact your life for years into the future, both personally
and financially. It could not be more important to ensure that your legal
representation has the ability to present a well-documented and persuasive
case, whether in negotiations with the opposing attorney or in court.
Our years in practice allow us to have an exceptional level of insight
into how judges make decisions. We have served as counsel in both simple
divorces, to high profile, high net worth cases. We know how important
your privacy is. We will attempt to get your divorce settled outside of
court whenever possible.
Whether you are seeking a separation or divorce, each issue must be fully
resolved before being presented to the court, or will be subject to a
court decision. There are a huge range of options in arranging a settlement,
and all community property will be evaluated. Even your personal property
– that property you owned prior to marriage – may be an issue
of contention. Cases in which funds have been mingled can make these matters
more complex. Marriages of long duration have specific issues that will
be evaluated, including matters involving the income earning capacity
of each person, the role played in the marriage.
No matter how complicated your situation is, we know what to do. The most important issue is to get legal representation as early as possible,
hopefully before filing any paperwork. With our early involvement, each
step of the process can be managed carefully with the goal of a final
outcome that better serves you, your children and your financial health.
