Thinking of Getting a Divorce in San Jose California?

The decision to end a marriage is never an easy one. A good divorce lawyer is essential to getting the best results from your divorce settlement. Hiring just any general practice attorney will not work as well, because both you and your case are unique. When selecting your divorce lawyer you should consider that when your teeth ache you probably go to a dentist, when your eyesight is failing you probably go to see an optometrist and/or ophthalmologist, and when you fall and break your leg you probably go to see your family doctor. This is sensible, because for each problem you go to see the person who knows how best to deal with that problem. Divorce is the same. So, finding a good divorce attorney is much more than just finding someone online or in the phone book, because they need to have certain types of experiences and skills to provide you with the best results.

The founder of The Law Office of John H Perrott, APC has been effectively assisting clients with the legal termination of their marriages for near two decades. In fact, our attorney has done so successfully in more than 500 cases.

Compassionate & Capable Attorney

Divorce can at times be much like a rollercoaster when you are not quite certain that the car you are in will stay on the tracks or that your seatbelt will hold you in. There will be both ups and downs, and they may hit unexpectedly. A capable and experienced attorney like John H. Perrott can warn you in advance, so you are not taken by surprise nearly so often. This will be done by both listening to your concerns and explaining the laws and the rules that apply, so you have a better idea of what to expect.

There are different emotional stages most divorcing people go through. According to the Kubler Ross model of grief, when someone you love dies you can experience: Denial; Anger; Bargaining; Depression; and ultimately Acceptance. Divorce is regularly similar to a death in your family, and during your divorce you may experience all 5 of those stages at some point. During that emotional rollercoaster you should reestablish and maintain the social connections you have to family and friends, just as you would if your spouse was dying. Your soon to be ex spouse may go through these emotional
stages as well, and you may wonder why they have become so irrational and unreasonable. You should keep your head, and not allow your emotions to take over. A steady, compassionate, and capable divorce attorney will help you make better decisions in your family law case. Turn to the Law Office of John H Perrott - A PROFESSIONAL CORPORATION.

Reasons You Need a Lawyer for Divorce

When Doing it Yourself is not the Best Plan
If you are considering a divorce, you may be wondering if it is worth it to hire an attorney or if you can just handle the divorce yourself. Whether you are dealing with an uncontested or contested divorce, it is always a good idea to hire an attorney in order to protect your best interests. Here are a few reasons:

  • Expert advice - An experienced attorney who has handled hundreds or even thousands of divorce cases has both knowledge and experience that will help you get through the process with fewer problems of your own making, and hopefully also help you anticipate and avoid problems that the other side will try to create. An attorney can help you follow the rules and procedures so that the Judge hears you and understands what you are trying to present.

  • Avoiding errors - Divorce is a highly stressful and emotional time, and it can be easy to make mistakes when you are not thinking clearly. Few persons make their best decisions when under the pressures of fear, emotional pain, greed, or simple shock and dismay that something they did not plan or agree with is now happening. Overreacting to the other side's unreasonable position(s) or taking unreasonable position(s) of your own can slow down the process and just result in additional time in Court and cost you more money. You can reduce these risks by seeking the advice of a good experienced attorney.

  • Reducing stress - Divorce is already difficult enough without having to worry about figuring out how to fill out piles of documents which you have never seen before. You may never have filled out these forms or Requested Support before, but an experienced attorney has seen and prepared these and can make the paperwork part of the process much less onerous. This can mean you having more time to focus on what matters to you and recover from the process faster.
