Folsom Divorce Attorneys – Cost-effective, Ethical, and Responsive Divorce Attorneys

What do I do if I have been served with a divorce petition?

It is essential that you consult with an attorney as soon as possible.  Once you are served with a divorce petition, you have thirty days to file a response.  It is important not to miss this deadline, because default orders can be ordered if you fail to respond.  There are also automatic temporary restraining orders which are in effect once a divorce action has been filed, and it is important that you understand the limitations of what is permitted once a divorce begins.  Our blog article “What are Automatic Temporary Restraining Orders (ATROS)?” may be helpful for you to read after receiving the divorce petition and summons. Finally, when a divorce commences, certain disclosures are required within specific time-frames.  Call our office at (916) 631-1996 for a free consultation with one of our Folsom divorce attorneys today to discuss your case.

What is an Annulment?

An annulment differs from a divorce in that an annulment treats the marriage as if it never happened, and a divorce ends a marriage.  There are limited circumstances where an annulment is available to a client instead of a divorce.  Contact one of our Folsom divorce attorneys today if you are considering an annulment so that your case can be evaluated and you can fully understand your options.

Do I have to hire an attorney to get divorced?

You are not required to hire an attorney to get divorced, but the Court process for any family law matter can often be very confusing and a family law attorney can help explain your rights and protect your interests throughout the proceedings.

The Folsom divorce attorneys at Mayer & Young, PC are experienced in family law and can help you through the complicated legal process in an efficient manner, and be there when you have questions.
