Make Your Divorce an Amicable One and Save Money by Selecting One Attorney as a Neutral Mediator

If you are faced with the unfortunate circumstance of having to divorce, the smartest way to achieve your divorce, reach an amicable resolution, subject yourself to less stress, and save money, is for the two of you to retain one experienced family law attorney to act as a neutral (to help you resolve all of your issues). The neutral attorney can advise both of you about the divorce process, the custody process, inform you of the manner in which the law requires you to divide your assets, and work out your other disputes. Finally, the neutral will be able to prepare all of the necessary paperwork to help you achieve the divorce in a timely, cost efficient and amicable manner.

Most people assume a divorce means a long battle. However, it is important to keep in mind that even when becoming engaged in a battle, the most important outcome is for you to get at least what you deserve according to the law. Fortunately, you can get what you deserve by using a neutral attorney. The neutral attorney will explain exactly what you are entitled to receive by law and answer any questions that you and your spouse may have about the law and its requirements. Based on the information provided to you by your neutral, you can decide yourself whether you want to give up more than you are entitled to receive by law or instead accept exactly what you are entitled to receive.

Although you both may initially try to dissolve your marriage with a neutral, once it appears clear that a resolution will not be met, you both will need to retain your own experienced attorney, who will fight for your respective rights aggressively and make certain that you receive everything that you are entitled to. The ironic thing is, if the two of you retain experienced and aggressive attorneys, the two of you will most likely end up where you would have been had you used a neutral (a resolution where each of you has received what the law entitles you to receive). Unfortunately, you both would endured more stress and spent much more time and money to reach that resolution.

Even if you anticipate becoming involved in a long battle (because of your spouse’s temperament, attitude and/or motives), it still may be worth it for you to retain a neutral first. By trying a neutral attorney first, it may end in success, allowing you to reap all the benefits of an early and amicable resolution. On the other hand, if your experience with a neutral doesn’t work, at least you will know that you made a valiant effort to save yourself time, money and stress. You will also have educated yourself on the divorce process and your rights and will be well informed before starting your divorce litigation.

California Court Mistakenly Posts Secret PG&E Settlement with Teen Girl

Pacific Gas & Electric Co. agreed to pay more than $2 million to a teenager burned in the 2010 San Bruno gas pipeline explosion that killed eight people and destroyed dozens of homes, according to secret settlement documents mistakenly posted by a California court.

The documents provide the first glimpse at settlements reached by the utility in lawsuits filed by victims of the blast. Details of settlements reached with more than a quarter of the roughly 400 plaintiffs have previously been confidential, the San Mateo County Times reported on Wednesday.

The documents posted on the San Mateo County Superior Court website show the company paid the teenage girl $1.8 million and an additional $677,700 to cover her attorneys’ fees and $19,400 for medical expenses. The girl suffered second and third-degree burns in the blast that was blamed on an inferior pipeline weld. Her injuries required extensive treatment and will likely leave her with permanent scars, the lawsuit states.

The documents, sealed by court order, were filed on July 18. It was not immediately clear how they got online.

“From the clerk’s office to the IT department, something happened,” said Judge Steven Dylina, who is presiding over the girl’s case. “I don’t know where the glitch is.”

The page on the court’s website connected to the San Bruno blast was briefly shut down but was back up on Thursday.

PG&E would not say if the disclosure would impact other civil cases. Some victims have complained that lack of information about other settlement amounts has made it difficult for them to evaluate offers from the utility.

“The contents of any settlement remain confidential but we stay committed in our efforts to resolve these matters as quickly and fairly as possible,” PG&E spokeswoman Brittany Chord said last Thursday.

California Clears Way for Facebook Acquisition of Instagram

Facebook was cleared by the state of California to issue stock for its purchase of Instagram. State officials declared the transaction was “fair, just and equitable” at the conclusion of a hearing in San Francisco before the Department of Corporations. The decision was expected.

The hearing was unusual but not for California. California is one of six states that allows for companies to seek permission to issue stock rather than dealing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Facebook agreed to buy popular mobile photo-sharing app Instagram in April for $300 million in cash and nearly 23 million Facebook shares. The shares were valued at $31, making the purchase worth at the time a cool $1 billion.

The transaction is no longer worth as much after Facebook’s bungled initial public stock offering in May. The social networking giant priced its shares at $38. Since then the shares have dropped below $20.

The deal drew huge headlines because the company was so young (launched in late 2010), has only 16 employees and, as Systrom acknowledged during Wednesday’s hearing, does not make any money. Asked how Instagram makes money, Systrom said: “That’s a great question. As of right now, we do not.” Systrom, like many in Silicon Valley, said he wasn’t focused on generating revenue, just on making “something that people really loved.”

But in the end, the company that had “defaulted” to remaining independent decided the Facebook acquisition was “the right thing to do for everyone involved” considering prevailing market conditions and competition from major players, Systrom said.

None of the details that emerged at the hearing were new. Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg negotiated the deal over Easter weekend with Systrom. Systrom said Instagram had talked with potential acquirers big and small but never received a formal offer. The final valuation of Instagram before the Facebook deal was “just south” of $500 million at the end of March, Systrom said.
