Divorce and Marriage

Shenzhen divorce lawyer

Some people facing a divorce are looking for the "bulldog" attorney, and some are looking for an attorney who really takes the time to listen to the client's needs and goals. At this China law firm, focusing on China divorce litigation, we bring the best of both approaches. Litigation is by nature adversarial, with each party and their attorney advocating for their separate interests. However, we have found that the most satisfactory approach is to search for common ground and craft reasonable, realistic solutions to which both parties can agree. If agreement cannot be accomplished, these reasonable and realistic solutions will often win in Court.

In litigation, many divorces proceed through the following sequential steps. (Cases that are settled or resolved in mediation do not proceed to trial.) One of the chief hallmarks of China family law approach is caring about our clients. Our China divorce attorneys take the time at the front end to understand your needs and goals. Then, once we know those goals, we execute tenaciously. It is because we care about our clients that we are so tenacious in representing them.

Types of Divorce Issues We Litigate

Some people expect difficulties from a contested divorce, and some people hope for an amicable dissolution; however, even with good intentions, the divorces process creates turmoil in people's lives. We have experience litigating issues like:

  • Distribution of assets
  • General property division, including distribution of assets in high net worth divorce cases
  • Employee benefits and pension plans
  • Retirement
  • Real estate
  • Custody and Support Issues
  • Child support, custody and parenting plans
  • Alimony and spousal support
  • Parent relocation
  • Post-divorce modification
  • Fathers' rights

If you prefer to represent yourself, we can help you with that as well. We offer consultation for self-representing clients. In these consultations we can help you with preparation for court, understanding various areas of law, and document drafting and review.

Alternatives to Litigation

We can and will litigate your case aggressively if that is what's best for you, but we find that many of our clients are looking for a different way to end their marriages with dignity and reorganize their lives in a quick and cost-effective process. If this approach is more suited to your needs, we also offer mediation services (both high net worth divorce mediation and child custody mediation) and collaborative law as alternative dispute resolution methods.
