Will the Judge Make Sure my Settlement is Fair?
Contrary to popular belief, it is up to you and your attorney to ensure that you get a fair outcome in your case. The judge’s role is to apply the laws written by the legislature. Without adequate representation you may or may not get a fair result. A common example is a settlement where one party takes the house and the other party gets the pension. While this may seem fair on its face, after the judge applies all of California’s laws it may seem less so. Support payments include income from pension plans, so the spouse who gets the house may end up with part of the pension, too. Contact one of Sagaria Law’s experienced, professional Family Law attorneys to schedule an initial consultation so that you don’t suffer from an “unfair” outcome which easily could be avoided with the help of our attorneys.
