Award-Winning Fountain Valley Divorce Attorneys

When people get married, they intend for their union to last. Marital strife, however, affects many couples and can arise for numerous reasons. While some couples weather marital storms, others choose to part ways.

The award-winning Orange County divorce lawyers at Minyard Morris are prepared to assist you if your marriage is coming to an end. Our team of 19 attorneys has nearly 300 years of collective experience and is dedicated to collaborating with each other to find solutions for family law clients. We understand how hard divorce is, and we are ready to provide you with compassionate, transparent and tireless advocacy during yours.

How Does The Divorce Process Work in Orange County?

In Orange County and throughout California, divorce is a four-part process. The different parts include:

  1. Filing for divorce: One spouse will file for divorce and the other will respond to their petition.
  2. Discovery: Spouses will share their financial information with each other and, with an attorney’s help, file subpoenas if necessary to request any missing details.
  3. Negotiations or court hearings: Couples can choose to go through mediation, where they will work out the issues of their divorce together. Or, if they cannot cooperate (or the divorce is a high-stakes event), they will resolve their issues through litigation.
  4. Completing the divorce: Couples will finalize their divorce in court once they have reached consensus (or a judge has made decisions) on all issues.

At Minyard Morris, we are committed to guiding you through the divorce process from beginning to end.
