What can I do to increase my odds of a better custody agreement?

If you want to increase your odds of obtaining a better custody agreement in California, you must prove to the judge that living with you for a majority of the time is in your child's best interests. Though there is no standard definition of "best interests," each state has its own set of guiding principles it uses to make best interest determinations.

Dividing real estate in the divorce

If you and your spouse have acquired a significant amount of real estate during your marriage, your divorce may be a high-asset one and subject to stricter property division guidelines. At Dianne Drew Butler & Associates, Inc., we represent clients in high-asset divorce cases throughout the Central Valley in California. We possess a thorough understanding of California's community property laws, which we use to help clients obtain the fairest possible settlement in their high net worth divorces.

Mediation is not always best for every divorce

Divorce is often a time of upheaval and high emotion. As your marriage comes to an end, you have many decisions to make, and you want to be certain that your choices allow you to move into your post-divorce life with as little stress as possible.

What makes a premarital agreement unenforceable

A prenuptial agreement can serve as a great tool for mitigating common divorce issues, such as the division of property and alimony. Unfortunately, in our experience, there are flaws in the vast majority of California premarital agreements. Such flaws often render those agreements invalid. Our legal team at Dianne Drew Butler & Associates, Inc., often reviews prenuptial agreements with clients to ensure the documents are valid.

Should you consider legal separation instead of divorce?

The decision to divorce is a tough one to make, as once a couple makes the decision there is no going back. Many California couples are not ready for that kind of finality. If you and your spouse have decided that you need a time-out but are not quite sure if divorce is what you want, you may consider legal separation.
