Helping You Through Your Complex Divorce

Last updated on May 25, 2023

A divorce is never easy. When your divorce involves large and complex assets, it can be even more difficult to navigate. If you share children with your spouse/partner, child custody and support are an added complexity. Often there is a need to take action post-divorce to modify earlier agreements or orders based on a change of circumstance, such as modifications of custody agreements or support.

Whether it is ending your marriage or modifying a prior Order or Judgment, each action you take is an important next step toward a new future. At Bley and Bley, our lawyers are known throughout California for our skill and experience in handling complex cases. While not all divorce cases require litigation, you can benefit from having an experienced litigator on your side.

Here For You From Start To Finish

Ending a marriage involves a lot more than signing divorce papers. Ending your marriage can include dividing your assets and property, support issues and determining a custody arrangement for your children. At Bley and Bley, we can help you with everything from the initial divorce filings through to the resolution of all issues.

We guide you through numerous aspects of your divorce case, including:

  • Determination of community versus separate property assets and obligations
  • Valuation and allocation of assets and debts
  • Child custody issues
  • Child support issues
  • Spousal support issues
  • Requests for attorney’s fees
  • Enforcement and/or modification of prior Orders and Judgments

Not every divorce cause must be argued in court. There are numerous alternative dispute resolution methods that can promote privacy and a more amicable divorce. We will discuss your options and decide together which course is the best for resolving your matter as expediently and completely as possible.

Navigating Spousal Support Orders

As part of your divorce settlement, the court may require spousal support to be paid by one party to the other. The spousal support amount and duration can be court-ordered or decided on by the spouses during settlement negotiations. Courts consider numerous factors when determining a spousal support order, including earning abilities, ages of the parties, the standard of living during the marriage, length of the marriage and the ability of each spouse to contribute to his or her own support.
