How can I get Accurate and Updated Information so That I can Make an Informed Decision in My Paternity, Divorce or Legal Separation in San Diego in 2014?

WHY IT IS SO CRUCIAL TO HAVE UPDATED AND ACCURATE INFORMATION FOR YOUR FAMILY LAW CASE NO MATTER WHETHER IT IS A LEGAL SEPARATION, DIVORCE OR PATERNITY?

The decisions you make in your divorce, legal separation or paternity will have consequences, in many cases, for the rest of your life. Whenever a person is going through a family law case, and it does not matter whether this is a divorce, paternity or legal separation, everyone seems to have advice on what to do and is an expert whether they have gone through the process or not. It is extremely dangerous to rely on non professional advice for your family law case to make any decisions as the information is only as good as the person giving it. Certainly, work in a collaborative manner and obtain opinions of all but, when it comes time to make decisions {like settlement or litigation} each case is different and the laws change frequently. As such, for you to make the most informed and intelligent decision you can {since no one knows the future}, get advice from the most knowledgeable professional. Below is a list of some of the resources but there are certainly others.

WHAT RESOURCES ARE AVAILABLE FOR ME TO OBTAIN THE ACCURATE AND CURRENT INFORMATION FOR MY FAMILY LAW CASE?
