Particularly in Divorce and Legal separation cases, San Diego Family Law Attorney John A. Delisi has represented clients so as to either promote and pursue an Uncontested case with a comprehensive property settlement agreement (Marital Settlement Agreement [MSA] or Stipulation For Judgment) or, if necessary, to preserve and protect property rights in a Contested case which goes to trial. In either case, the parties are required to make formal disclosures of their assets and debts and income and expenses. If the parties are satisfied with their Preliminary Disclosures, they can waive the Final Disclosure. The settlement of cases is facilitated by the complete and truthful disclosures of assets and debts and income and expenses. Various tools are available to a party whose spouse tries to take action intended to frustrate the disclosure process. Such tools include depositions, subpoenas, interrogatories, and requests for admissions.

Delisi has represented clients in Domestic cases involving property division with an emphasis on settlement, particularly since 80% of Divorce cases settle and avoid trial. Comprehensive settlement agreements, either Marital Settlement Agreements or Stipulations For Judgment, are strongly encouraged by San Diego Family Law Attorney John A. Delisi. It is particularly noteworthy that a contested case can take more than a year and thousands of dollars in attorney’s fees and costs to litigate and yet settle in the courthouse hallway the day of trial. San Diego Family Law Attorney John A. Delisi encourages settlement when settlement is, in all likelihood, within reach, just below the surface, and the alternative can be so destructive.
San Diego Attorney John A. Delisi will provide clients with aggressive and competent legal representation.
