Those in California who have ended their marriages understand how complex and challenging the process can be. However, just because you’ve chosen to divorce does not mean you are forfeiting your personal rights. What rights you have pertaining to your divorce depends on various factors, including whether you have children, whether you signed a prenuptial or separation agreement and what current state laws have bearing on your particular situation.
You may have the right to economic support and/or property and various assets. You also have the right to hire legal representation to act on your behalf in court.
