Thorsteinson Law Group | Long Beach Divorce and Family Law Attorney | Los Angeles | Orange County


Thorsteinson Law Group has experience litigating and settling family law matters in Long Beach and the surrounding areas.

Thorsteinson Law Group focuses on helping people through divorce as quickly and efficiently as possible. Every divorce is unique, and it's important to consider the best strategy and approach for your situation. We will work to resolve issues with compassion and care, and will advocate for your best interests. The goal is to meet your divorce needs and find a lasting resolution, so that you can live your life without the distraction of unresolved issues.
In California, all divorce is considered "no-fault" which means that each spouse is equally responsible for 50% of the marriage. Assets and debts are divided equally, and other issues such as spousal support and child custody are negotiated and worked out through the divorce process.

Uncontested Divorce in Long Beach


An uncontested divorce is a divorce where both parties are in complete agreement regarding all the issues or when one party chooses not to participate in the divorce process. There are no disputes over support, division of property, or child custody and you and your spouse agree to the terms of your divorce without the need for a trial.

Contested Divorce In Long Beach


In a contested divorce, you and your spouse are unable to reach an agreement regarding matters such as property division, spousal support, and child custody. When an acceptable agreement cannot be reached through negotiation or mediation, it becomes necessary to go to trial to protect your best interests.

Legal Separation in Long Beach


The grounds for separation are the same as for divorce. Either one may be had on the no-fault ground of irreconcilable differences, and it is not necessary to prove that one party is at fault in some way for ending the relationship. The residency requirement is not an issue in legal separation, but the separation must be consensual to be granted.

A separation agreement is not required in order for a couple to live apart, but a thoughtful separation agreement can adequately address issues such as child custody, the payment of support, and property division. Whether a separation ultimately leads to divorce or reconciliation, a legal separation agreement can pave the way for a peaceful resolution.

Both divorce and legal separation result in separate lives for spouses and resolve areas of disagreement.
