Divorce papers

Being served divorce papers can be a traumatic experience, especially when you didn’t see it coming.

If you are served papers, read them because all legal papers contain a deadline and need immediate action.  If you decide to procrastinate or ignore the situation, you are asking for trouble.  Failing to act or do as directed, could find you in contempt of court and a bench warrant could be issued for your arrest.

Stay calm.  Don’t stress out.  Being served with divorce papers doesn’t mean the whole world will cave in on you.  It just means that your marriage is coming to an end.

You need to take steps to protect yourself.  Contacting an experienced Orange County Divorce attorney makes good sense – an attorney who will evaluate every possible alternative and then explain your options and the advantages and disadvantages of each.
