San Jose Divorce Attorney

Frustrated and Confused About Your Divorce? Let Us Get It Right.

At Ahluwalia Law, we are dedicated to providing personalized and professional legal counsel to clients facing a divorce. Having practiced California family law for decades, Attorney Madan Ahluwalia understands the legal and emotional challenges that accompany the end of a marriage. Whether you want to go through negotiating with the other party or go straight to court, we have the experience to fight for your needs and goals.

No two divorces are the same, so we will not take a “one size fits all” approach to your situation. Some divorces are acrimonious, contentious, and adversarial, while others are mostly amicable and only a few things need to be resolved with the help of a court. In some cases, financial worth makes divorce more complicated. Whatever your situation, Ahluwalia Law will counsel you on your California divorce based on your best interests.

Uncontested Divorce

With an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse agree on all important terms, such as asset division, child custody and support, and spousal support. With assistance from us, you will create a marital settlement agreement and we will help you present it to the court. This route is often less expensive than a litigated (a.k.a contested) divorce and allows you to control the terms of your separation.

Contested Divorce

When both spouses cannot agree on important ancillary issues, the divorce is contested and the matters in contention must be litigated. This often happens when the situation is highly emotional, such as a dispute over child custody, or if there are complex financial issues, which can be the case with high-net worth divorces. If your divorce requires litigation, Madan will aggressively fight for your best interests in court and fight for the outcome you need. While we encourage you to try other means first, we are always ready to fight for you. We are not afraid to go toe-to-toe with the other side.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Even when a divorce is inevitable, there are ways to minimize the conflict and help all parties involved to position themselves better for the future. One of the most common forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is mediation, where each party comes together with their own attorney and an unbiased third party mediator. The mediator can help provide suggestions and guide you toward compromises that will help everyone get more of what they want out of the divorce.

While alternative dispute resolution is always a great option, it is especially important when there are children involved. Avoiding unnecessary conflict and making sure that the children are always put first is very important to Madan, and he has found that it is also the best way to ensure each client is satisfied with the results of their divorce.
