California- Default Divorce with Child Custody - WORLD Law Direct ... | Rescoops | Scoop.it
I thought Form FL 311 was to be an attachment for Child Custody and Visitation that went with the initial petition, but the clerk would not accept it saying that it had to be filed separately from the divorce packet.

This is a discussion board posting but I found it interesting. What interested me most about the posting was that the gentleman who made the initial post simply assume that divorce is a matter of filing different paperwork in the correct order.   it is unclear from the response whether or not the responding person is a practicing attorney. However, the person attempts to assist the first individual who made the posting  by providing some instruction about the various forms to be filed.

 

 What is often misunderstood about divorce law in many states is that it is not merely filing certain paperwork that gets the job done correctly. Each and every document that is filed with the court has a specific purpose in the law. Notice that I said  "in the law." This is because there is a public law, statute, legal case, or procedural guideline  that relates to the document and demonstrates its significance in the process.

 

What is occurred here as evidenced in this discussion board is something that is happening all across the country and particularly in the State of Rhode Island. Many people are just simply trying to "fill out forms" in order to finalize a divorce. Yet they don't understand the significance that each form has. In other words, they don't understand the law. This becomes extremely problematic because once they go through their divorce, most of the times it can't be "undone." Yet many people believe that if they made a mistake they can simply come back later and asked the court to fix it.

 

Divorces are much more than forms. Divorces involve laws and cases that many of us have studied our whole lives as attorneys who practice divorce and family law. It's certainly not easy and sometimes is far from enjoyable but yet it most certainly involves a great deal of skill.

 

I highly recommend to anyone who is attempting to obtain a divorce that he or she in the very least obtain some minimal assistance from a licensed attorney who regularly practices divorce and family law in the state in which they are filing. If you don't do so, then your divorce and everything that goes with it is being done by the seat of your pants and  your life's accomplishments, children, assets, debts, child support, houses, retirement accounts, alimony claims and everything involving your life with your spouse is at risk.

This is an exceptionally good and yet concise article that I absolutely agree with. There is no doubt that if the parties understand the divorce process that may lead to better outcomes.

 

All too often people hire an attorney and then they leave everything to the attorney. Frankly, that's a bad move! If you don't understand what is going on then how are you supposed to make the important decisions?  

 

 I like the fact that this article was done by a certified family law practitioner. The reason I like this is because it goes along with my whole philosophy that people need to be informed and they need to understand what is going on in the process. If you leave everything up to the attorney, then certainly the attorney is going to know what is going on in the process. Unfortunately, the attorney is going to have all the control of the process.

 

The fact is, that lawyers really should be guides for their clients. We should be keeping people informed of what their rights are and what their options and alternatives are. This is not the attorneys case! A divorce is your life! Who should be in control of important decisions regarding Your Life? Should it be the attorney or should it be you?

 

The answer to the question is a no-brainer. Most certainly you should be the one who decides what happens regarding your children, your assets, your debts, your retirement funds, your vehicles, your house, and everything else that goes with it.

 

 If you trust your lawyer 100% and do not keep yourself informed them the only one who was going to win in the case is the lawyer.

 

I can name that tune in three words.  THAT IS WRONG!

 

 Nice job on the article fellow colleague. It's nice to know that there are others who have a strong moral ethic for their clients.
