Crisis in Family Law/Five Years Before Your Divorce May Be Heard In San Francisco

Across the nation, state court systems are facing severe budget cuts that may result in a delay of justice for many. California has been no exception. In their frantic effort to stem the tide of red ink in Sacramento, legislators have cut $350 million from the state court budget, with more cuts to follow.

For someone braving the courts to get a divorce, the news is grim. Twenty-five of San Francisco’s 63 Superior court chambers have been shuttered. Two hundred of 480 employees will be getting pink slips. “It will take a year and a half to get a divorce in San Francisco and to get a child custody order. If you file suit now, we won’t do anything with your case for five years.” San Francisco Superior court spokesperson Ann Donlan said.

Unfortunately, Los Angeles County may not fare much better. Right now, it is common for a lawyer in Los Angeles County to face an 18 month delay when filing an Order to Show Cause. That can be catastrophic if the matter concerns custody of children, visitation or any number of other sensitive issues.

Getting on with one’s life is paramount, and a lingering, costly battle in court is the last thing anyone wants. It simply stretches out the pain, multiplies the cost and hurts the children.

This is an email that I recently received from the family law offices of Ron Supancic and Robert Borsky partners at The Law Collaborative.

The email supports what I have been saying for sometime now, which is that the crisis in family law is.  only going to worsen in our current economy escalating all of the trauma, the devastation, and financial impact to families and individuals facing divorce ten fold. Especially if it is going to take five years to hear on the issues, as alluded to by Ann Donlan the spokesperson for San Francisco Superior Court.
