California Divorce Law

Divorce 101: California Divorce Law Video Tutorial

You may have already heard me say it before: Divorce is both Procedure & Substance. Procedure = forms, processing with the court, “service of process” (delivery of documents to your spouse). Substance = the issues at the heart (sorry) of your divorce like property division, co-parenting, child support, and alimony. This video tutorial is for you if you want to learn more about California divorce law (i.e. substance). It’s not legal advice and it definitely won’t establish an attorney-client relationship but it might just help you and your spouse with negotiating an agreement. Or, if you are a Cooperative Divorce member, this is a great primer for your first (or second) meeting.  Want to learn more? Check out our Udemy Course:…

There’s a Right Way to DIY Your Divorce and Here’s How

Before I founded Hello Divorce, I was terrified of “DIY” law. I didn’t actually believe that it was a good option for most people.

Did you know in over 75% of divorces, at least one spouse is self-represented? It’s true! So I…

And what you have on your side – more than any lawyer or mediator, is a deep understanding of your spouse.

Fact or Fiction? 10 Truths You Need to Know if You’re Filing for Divorce

If I could go back and do it again, I’d have still been a divorce lawyer. I just would have shifted the way I practice a lot earlier and spent less time in the courtroom and more time at the negotiating table. But, live and learn and without all of that experience, I would not have been able to call myself a Certified Family Law Specialist. Below are a few #divorcetruths I’ve learned after 15 years as a divorce lawyer,…

Q&A: Michelle Dempsey on Divorcing a High Conflict Spouse

I first connected with Michelle Dempsey-Multack on Instagram and it was in that first conversation that I knew we had to spotlight her in a Hello Divorce Q&A session.

But more than that – she’s authentic, kind, powerful, engaging, and inciteful. While her expertise as a Certified Divorce Specialist, Coach, and Author is generally shared with…

How to Survive Living With Your Ex During Covid

I have seen at least 5 articles lately about how “quarantining with my ex changed my life for the better” and while I am thrilled for them, I have had a very different experience. After speaking with a few of our awesome clients and listening to how challenging the last few months have been for them — I thought I’d weigh in and provide a few tips for navigating life when your ex is still living with you.
