At Abbassi Law Firm, we have a substantial depth of experience helping clients in many different situations relating to divorce, probate, trust, and estate disputes. We are fully prepared to help you if your case involves any of the below situations.
Step One: Pre-Requisites
Before you file for divorce, please be sure that you have copies of important documents and that your personal belongings are secure. It's also important to check your credit status before you file for divorce.
Step Two: File For Divorce
The process typically begins with Attorney Abbassi distributing your summons and a petition - one being the notice and the other being an official request. Your papers are first to be brought to your local courthouse, then a local family law clerk's office.
Step Three: Serving and Responding
This statement made might vary. In California, only one spouse has to call for divorce, but your spouse must sign a Notice and Acknowledgment of Receipt. When the respondent is served, you must then make sure your court knows with a Proof of Summons.
Step Four: Temporary Orders and Finances
Next, Attorney Abbassi will walk you through orders you would like addressed in front of the judge like child custody and visitation, child support, fees and more. Documentation needed may include pay stubs, bank, mortgage, vehicle, and credit card statements, and life insurance policy.
Step Five: Discovery
Following that, the "Discovery" process is conducted. The Discovery process allows you to understand the evidence in which your spouse plans to use on trial, along with knowledge of what's at stake. In California, you are allowed up until 60 days before a trial to gather this information.
Step Six: Trial
In the courtroom, if your case goes there, Attorney Abbassi will represent you with facts to help you, the right evidence and documentation that helms your side of the case completely true.
Step Seven: Settlements
Should you accept or reject a plea? Attorney Abbassi will help you come to the right decisions so the settlement leans towards your favor!
Step One: Complaints (Both Perspectives)
If you are receiving a complaint, Attorney Abassi will work diligently with you to figure out finances owed and a solution to justify your plea towards the plaintiff.
Step Two: Pleadings
During pleadings, Attorney Abbassi will help you make the right choice in terms of what direction to take. If you received a complaint towards you, you could either answer or motion to dismiss. If you are filing the complaint, Attorney Abbassi will take action to make sure your claims are perceived true and justified.
Step Three: Discovery
Attorney Abbassi will assist you in finding the right documentation along with answering questions under oath, to make sure you have the tools you need to succeed when facing this kind of case.
Step Four: Trial or Judgement
In a Civil Litigation case, there is usually a "summary judgement" conducted, where if one side wins, the case is dismissed. Attorney Abbassi will fight for you to be on the right side of this scope conducted by the court.
Step Five: Settlements
It is rare that this type of case goes on full trial, but Attorney Abbassi helps you decide whether or not it's worth it to make a settlement or file a motion, should there be disagreement.
Attorney Abbassi guides you through the process of choosing who you would like assets passed onto. From identifying assets of your estate to helping you write your wills, resolving tax income issues and assisting with distribution, Attorney Abbassi specializes in helping clients through this tough and often indecisive time.
Step One: Applications
Attorney Abbassi knows the vitality of your application status, whether or not it's pending. That's why Attorney Abbassi will work with you if your next steps are waiting on eligibility for residency, helping you fix any application denial, preparing for an interview, or establishing defense against deportation.
Step Two: First Hearing
As you meet with the judge, Attorney Abbassi will help you decide what's best for your case's next steps, whether it's to apply for asylum, or admit/deny the charges against you.
Step Three: Merits Hearing
In helping to prepare arguments to defend your case, Attorney Abbassi applies methods that show why you belong in the United States. Appearing in court can be nerve wracking, which is why Attorney Abbassi is there to assist with presenting your argument and stray away from a deportation settlement.
