Tough & Compassionate Attorneys Helping With Divorces in Sacramento

Divorces in Sacramento

The laws in California concerning the dissolution of marriage are complex. Instead of navigating the territory alone, get counsel from an experienced divorce attorney in Sacramento at Dougherty & Associates. Even during a legal separation, you need someone to protect your rights and see to your best interests and those of your children. If possible, it’s always best to be collaborative with your spouse instead of letting the courts decide the division of property. However, if litigation is necessary, our office has the resources to help you get through the proceedings to reach an equitable arrangement.

Types of Legal Separation

The elements of each separation are individual to your situation. Here are a few of the types of cases that we handle:

  • Contested – This is when the parties involved disagree on items of the separation.
  • Uncontested – This is a divorce where the parties agree on all the terms.
  • Child custody - Visitation and child custody agreements can be reached that respect the best interests of all parties.
  • Alimony - Spousal support is unique to each situation. Let us help you pursue a fair amount.
  • Modifications - To make changes to any court order, you have to go back into court or face contempt charges yourself. Let our attorney help you with these issues.
