Joinder of Interested Third Parties in San Diego

Legal Counsel from a San Diego Divorce Lawyer

A “Motion for Joinder” is a request made to the court to have a third party become involved in a family law case. One of the most common reasons the court assigns a joinder is when one or both of the parties in a divorce have a pension or other type of employment benefit plan. A joinder may also be necessary in divorces that involve property rights or children.

Because the joinder is an agent of the court, it can be difficult to properly communicate with them, which is why it is highly recommended that you obtain legal representation. At Fair Cadora, APC, our San Diego family lawyers can communicate with the joinder on your behalf and articulate your specific needs and desires.

Representing Third Parties

On matters relating to children, a Motion for Joinder in a divorce would be necessary if the child is living with grandparents, as they would need to be a part of the marital dissolution case. It may also be a necessary component to a domestic partner or same-sex marriage dissolution and can also effect adoption cases as well.

In cases involving domestic partnerships or same-sex marriages, it is vital that you obtain legal counsel to protect the wellbeing of your children.

Property Division

Motion for Joinders are commonly requested if the spouses in a divorce own real estate with other parties. Those parties are ordered by the court to sign documents that will transfer the title as indicated by the court when dividing the property.

To ensure that you receive a favorable settlement, you should speak with one of our San Diego divorce lawyers and let them examine the specifics of your case and discuss your options. At Fair Cadora, APC, we go above and beyond for our clients and are standing by ready to assist you.

Real Client Testimonials

“She is not afraid to go toe to toe in the court room against opposing counsel and she made my ex and her counsel look vastly unprepared and downright foolish at times. Lauren paid attention to every detail and worked hard to keep costs down in what I would consider a high conflict divorce. Lauren is extremely trustworthy, so much I trusted her to represent me in court even while I was deployed overseas, which speaks volumes about her character.”
