You Don’t Have to Face Divorce Alone

Divorce can be one of the most painful things a person can experience. And because it requires the careful division of everything from property and debts to custody of children, the pain can sometimes be drawn out over time. At the Law Offices of Nory R. Pascua, APC, I will do everything I can to lift the stress of divorce off your shoulders and help keep the process moving. My job is to help you get through this painful time so you can start the next chapter of your life on the right foot.

Whether you are seeking the divorce, you are opposed to it, or you and your spouse have mutually decided to separate, I will stand up for your interests and make sure that they are reflected in negotiations over the division of property, spousal support, child custody, child support and all other related matters.

As a certified family law specialist, I have additional training and unique insight into the latest developments in California family law, and I use that information to craft effective, personalized legal strategies for my clients.

Understanding the Difference Between Divorce, Legal Separation and Annulment

One of the questions I am asked frequently is exactly what legal options there are to end a marriage. While divorce is the best-known option, there are actually three ways under California law to end a marriage:

  • Divorce: A divorce ends a legally valid marriage and is the most common way to separate from a spouse.
  • Legal Separation: A legal separation does not terminate the marriage but only separates a couple’s economic interests.
  • Annulment: An annulment treats the marriage as though it never existed and completely invalidates it. This option only works in some cases and requires an explanation as to why the marriage should not be considered valid.

“As a law enforcement officer, my life was turned upside down when my ex made false domestic violence allegations against me. My ex lied and was able to obtain an EPO, a TRO, sole legal and sole physical custody of my two children with minimal supervised visitations to me, and an unfathomable amount in child support. Luckily, I found Nory, who specializes in working with law enforcement officers. Nory was trial ready and was able to fight off the restraining orders. Also, she was ultimately able to get me joint legal custody and close to joint physical custody of my children. I am so happy to now be able to jointly raise my daughters and spend a substantial amount of time with them. And, I am thrilled to still be employed with a local area police department.” - Leo
