Divorce Lawyer

If you or a loved one needs a divorce lawyer, reach out to a divorce lawyer Alameda County, CA clients trust to help them with family troubles and assistance. 

There seems to be quite a bit of ambiguity surrounding divorce law, specifically what divorce lawyers do. The following are three myths regarding divorce lawyers and the law they practice.

Divorce lawyers are not impartial, and always share their opinion on who they believe and why.

This statement is false, as a good divorce lawyer understands their role needs to be impartial. If you and your spouse are struggling with conflict in your marriage and need an objective third party to mediate and help guide the conversation in a constructive unbiased manner a divorce lawyer would be a great option. Not only are they great listeners and mediators, but they also have the experience, wisdom, and logic needed to provide counsel to the family or spouses. A divorce lawyer you can trust will ensure complete confidentiality within their meetings, and will not allow emotion to sway them, but will be calm and level-headed. 

Divorce lawyers are overpriced, often costing you more than they are worth.

Not only is this statement false, but actually the complete opposite is true. A trustworthy divorce lawyer may save you money! If you possess assets that are of high value it would be in your best interest to hire an attorney that specializes in divorce law. The more complicated your case is, the longer the court time. With prolonged court time comes the risk of higher costs that the client will be expected to pay. Another example of a complex case would be if there is a complicated child custody situation. This will usually take the court longer to rule and will cost the clients more money and time. Hiring a divorce lawyer will allow your case to run as smoothly as possible. They are knowledgeable about the court process and can work to save you money. Cutting out unnecessary technicalities, and expediting the court’s scheduling, a good divorce lawyer will advocate for their client and work towards saving their client from financial burden. 

Myth 3: Divorce lawyers are rushed and do not care about their clients or their cases.

This myth could not be further from the truth. The team of attorneys at Kempen & Company is able and willing to treat all their clients and cases with the utmost respect and dedication they deserve. Emotional outbursts and conflict between spouses can make the divorce process painful and complicated. A good divorce lawyer will be able to mediate these conversations, and peacefully navigate the best way to advocate for their client. Working with a divorce lawyer should provide clients with peace of mind, knowing that their attorney is doing all they can to ensure their client’s wishes and work in their best interest. A divorce lawyer understands how difficult the process of divorce can be for his or her clients and are empathetic throughout their legal journey through divorce. If you or a loved one is in need of counsel or representation in divorce reach out to a trusted divorce lawyer today.
