At the Law Offices of San Marcos Divorce Lawyer Joseph Carnohan, we represent clients in a broad range of divorce and family law matters pertaining to the dissolution of marriage such as child custody, spousal support, and property division.
California Law places a residency requirement upon those seeking to obtain a divorce in the state. At least one party must be a resident of the state for a minimum of six months prior to filing a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage, and at least three months in the county where their Divorce Petition is filed.
Mr. Carnohan understands that divorce is extremely difficult because of the changing dynamics of your family life. Divorce Lawyer Carnohan works with opposing counsel to negotiate a settlement agreement to avoid a long, drawn out and costly court battle. However, if settlement negotiations fall through due to an inability to reach terms that are acceptable to both parties, San Marcos Divorce Attorney Joseph Battle Carnohan possesses the trial experience necessary to take your case to court.
We handle a broad range of divorce cases, including the following:
If you and your partner entered into a Domestic Partnership and have subsequently decided to end the relationship, the Domestic Partnership must be dissolved. If a couple married after they obtained a Domestic Partnership, it must first be dissolved prior to the initiation of Divorce Proceedings.
The Law Offices of San Marcos Divorce Lawyer Joseph Carnohan will work vigorously to resolve your divorce as quickly and effectively as possible so you and your spouse can move forward with your lives. Call (760) 722-
In addition to representing the best interests of his clients throughout settlement negotiations, Mr. Carnohan has a proven track record of success helping spouses negotiate the terms of their divorce through Divorce Mediation.
A Divorce Mediator is an objective third party who will meet with the divorcing couple to help them reach a final divorce agreement. In order for Mediation to be successful, the parties must be able to set aside any feelings of animosity and come together for the greater good of their family to settle their case without litigation, which is both emotionally draining and financially costly.
During Mediation, San Marcos Lawyer Joe Carnohan will work with the divorcing spouses to bring about a peaceful resolution that will keep the parties out of court. Mr. Carnohan will guide both parties through Mediation. He will answer all of your questions, clarify the legal issues at hand, and suggest solutions that will result in a fair and reasonable outcome for each. He will also draft the requisite paperwork reflecting the terms that have been reached.
Should the Mediation process fail to yield results with which both parties are satisfied, it will become necessary for each spouse to retain counsel. Once Mr. Carnohan acts as a Divorce Mediator, he is forbidden by the law to represent either party due to a conflict of interest.
If you believe that you and your spouse are candidates for Divorce Mediation, please contact San Marcos Divorce Attorney Joseph B. Carnohan for your complimentary consultation. During your consultation, Mr. Carnohan will meet with you to determine, based upon his 30+ years of experience, whether Mediation is feasible based on your unique situation.
After this consultation, if Lawyer Joe Carnohan determines that attempts to dissolve your marriage via Divorce Mediation are not likely to be successful, he will be honest and forthright with his assessment.
