Part One: We start by giving you a technical overview of the divorce process in California. This includes introducing you to procedural divorce law as well as substantive divorce law. Procedural law is the procedures you have to follow to navigate your case from inception to its end. In other words, it is a roadmap you need to use to go about getting what you want. For example if you want child support, you must file a form FL-300 and FL-115 and follow the filing and service rules set forth by the code of civil procedure. Substantive law is the actual law which provides each spouse or parent with a set of rights. Both procedural law and substantive law are very important in a divorce case.

Part Two: We will introduce you to the rules of evidence and your right to discovery. You will see examples of how important it is to provide the Court with competent evidence it can properly take into consideration in making its decision. Furthermore, we will discuss the tools available to you to demand information and documents from your spouse or other parent in a process called discovery. One of the most important parts of your family law case is telling your story to the judge. There is an art and science to telling your story. In part 2, you will learn about the skill of storytelling in a courtroom environment and an overview of the rules of evidence.

Part Three: Next, we introduce you to the many different legal help options which are available to you so you can choose the right legal help for your budget. We will discuss how to choose the right lawyer (how to understand their retainer agreement), hiring a lawyer for a limited-scope purpose for a set fee, mediation, arbitration, collaborative divorce and handling your case yourself without an attorney (in pro per). Once you understand the big picture of divorce, you will be in a better position to decide for yourself to what degree you want to involve a lawyer.

In the busy halls of our criminal justice system, it is easy to fall through the cracks. It is even easier to be pre-judged and villainized. It is in these busy halls, where even the presumption of innocence gets lost. I work in these halls. I have seen the good, the bad and the ugly. One thing I have learned is you don’t want to drink their poison. Please read my blog, Don’t Drink Their Poison before deciding to brave these halls without the help of a competent lawyer.
