How to Prepare for Civil Suits
Preparing for a civil suit in San Luis Obispo takes a great deal of experience and understanding of the local court system. Before filing a case, you must ensure that you are filing against the correct party and in the correct court, and then understand the deadlines associated with your case. In California, there may be ways to resolve your case without ever having to go before a judge.
Service of process is an important part of every case handled in a Central Coast court. There are several different ways that you can serve the other party in your case, and different requirements for each way. We can help you prepare the service and filing paperwork you need to ensure your case is pursued properly.
Setting Up Living Trusts in San Luis Obispo
Living trusts provide property management provisions during your lifetime and after death. They eliminate the need for court intervention and provide a successor upon death if you are serving as your own trustee. Perhaps you’ve considered setting up a living trust in San Luis Obispo to manage your property or to ensure that your successor manages the property if you become incapacitated due to injury or illness.
In We The People’s San Luis Obispo office, we can help you complete the living trust documents you need to avoid probate on your assets and take control of what happens to your property when you are no longer able to manage it. This is also a way to prevent your financial matters from being published on public record.
How to Prepare for Civil Suits
Uncontested Divorces under California State Law
San Luis Obispo has one of the highest percentages of people divorced in the county, at approximately 10 percent. In fact, it’s ranked #2 in the region for divorce rates, only following Kings County.
An uncontested divorce is one in which the spouses agree on matters and don’t require the court to split the assets or determine child custody. These types of divorces typically move much more quickly through the system and require fewer forms to complete.
Business Agreements, Permits, Ordinances and Tax Forms
If you’re looking to start or modify a business in San Luis Obispo or anywhere on the Central Coast, we can help you navigate the forms that you need to get everything settled and get back to work. Specifically, we can help you with business licenses, building permits, health-related permit forms, land use ordinances, required tax forms, and bid opportunities that will help your company reach its potential.
Changing Your Name after Divorce
One of the most common reasons to change your name as an adult is after you get divorced and want to change your name back to your former one. You may be able to do this as part of your divorce case if you’re getting divorced in California.
But if you get divorced somewhere else, we can help you complete the name change forms you need to change your name in San Louis Obispo. Required documents typically include a petition for change of name and an order to show cause for change of name, among others.
Visitation and Support Needs in San Luis Obispo
Visitation and support needs on the Central Coast and be complex if you don’t know where to start. We can help you prepare requests for temporary orders or to modify existing orders in regards to child visitation and child support in San Luis Obispo. If you have an emergency on the Central Coast, you may also follow the Ex Parte Request for Order instructions to obtain or modify visitation orders on a temporary and emergency basis.
How to File Forms for Child Custody Agreements
About 90 percent of divorcing parents can agree on what’s best for their children, and only a few child custody cases actually end up in a courtroom. At We The People, we can assist you with the forms you need for your child custody case in San Luis Obispo. But if there’s an ongoing dispute between parents, the Central Coast court may order a child custody evaluation by a court-appointed evaluator to asses what’s best for the child.
