Many family law disputes are contentious. They’re fraught with anger and resentment. So, from the start, these disputes are stressful and, in truth, neither party is really positioned to “win.” If there are children involved – even indirectly – this can have devastating consequences for years to come.
At the Sachdev Legal Group, APC, we strive to take a different approach to divorce, child custody disputes, and other family law cases. Our lawyers appreciate that real people are involved and that real families are caught in the crosshairs. So, our law firm does everything in its power to advocate for our clients – but in a way that doesn’t aggravate the situation or antagonize the other party.
This doesn’t mean we don’t fight passionately or give up when faced with adversity. Rather, we prioritize finding amicable resolutions to the disputes we navigate. When necessary, however, our skilled litigators will be ready for a showdown in court.
It’s not uncommon for spouses to have trouble seeing eye-to-eye during a divorce. After all, their differences have led them to a place where they decided it’s ultimately better that they move forward in different directions. However, divorces in California cannot be finalized until both spouses are in agreement about the terms of their split. That can pose a problem when two people just aren’t on the same pages.
At the Sachdev Legal Group, APC, we’ve spent more than 20 years helping clients resolve divorce disputes through an alternative dispute resolution process called mediation. Mediation gets a neutral third party – like experienced divorce mediator Puja A. Sachdev – involved in the process.
The mediator helps both spouses find common ground and, ultimately, reach compromises about aspects of their divorce – including hashing out timeshare agreements and nailing down financial support obligations. The best part about choosing mediation is that the spouses are able to maintain control over how the dispute is resolved – not the mediator and not a judge.
The mediation process can limit animosity, help spouses get on the same page, and, ultimately, significantly reduce the cost of a divorce in San Diego.
Going through any contested family law issue is tough. For most, it’s a terribly sad and overwhelming period of time. It’s not uncommon for divorcing partners to feel uncertain and alone.
When you’re navigating a divorce or fighting for custody of your children, it helps to have a system of support in place. At the Sachdev Legal Group, APC, we strive to offer that to our clients.
Our attorneys know that you’re going through an incredibly difficult period of your life. We know that the person you’d normally confide in and turn to for advice is probably on the other side of the table. So, we want you to know that you can turn to us for whatever support and guidance you need. We’ll advocate fiercely to get the outcome you want, while also offering you compassionate and caring shoulders to lean on.
The longer it takes for you and your spouse to agree about the terms of your divorce or custody arrangement, the more it will cost. While some scrupulous divorce lawyers might love this, the Sachdev Legal Group, APC, does not.
Why? Because we know that the longer it takes to resolve your family law dispute, the more damage it’s doing to you and your family – and your wallet. We genuinely care about our clients and want to help them expedite these often-painful legal battles. That’s why we work hard to invest in strategies, tools, and techniques that facilitate amicable and swift resolutions.
We’ll carefully review the circumstances of your case and identify which legal tools – including mediation or a negotiated settlement through attorneys – might work best for your particular situation. We’ll be forceful as we pursue the outcome you want and advocate passionately on your behalf, but will be mindful of creating unnecessary waves in ocean. We know that the sooner we can resolve your family law case, the better it will be – for you and your bank account.
