The Value of a Specialist
There is a difference between certified family law attorneys and other lawyers who occasionally practice family law.
Not all family law attorneys are capable of getting you the results you need. If you hire a certified specialist, you know that you are in good hands. Becoming a certified family law specialist is a lengthy and complicated process.
The California Board of Legal Specialization requires applicants to prove their expertise. Only those who have demonstrated extensive experience within the field of family law will be considered.
You know that you are in good hands when hiring a certified family law specialist because the State Bar of California only provides certification to attorneys:
- Who have passed a detailed written exam
- Practiced family law at least a quarter of the time for the past five years
- Demonstrated a high level of experience and achievement
- Finished at least 45 hours of continuing education in family law
- Has a favorable standing among judges
- Is an active member of the State Bar of California
Why You Need an Experienced Family Law Lawyer in San Diego
It is a mistake to assume you don't need the very best attorney when going through a divorce. Even friendly divorces involving two spouses still on good terms can get complicated and contentious. Disagreements are bound to arise anytime you break up, separate, and divide assets such as properties, businesses, retirement funds, heirlooms, stocks, and other belongings.
You will also need a specialist if your divorce involves child custody. Receiving fair physical custody is a complicated process. Besides determining the schedule of physical custody, there are other important decisions to negotiate about who makes decisions for the child's welfare, where the child will go to school, and whether the primary custody parent can move away.
DO NOT risk going through a complicated divorce without a California certified family law attorney. Trusting your important case to a less experienced attorney can cost your peace of mind and financial stability.
