I am an avid motorcycle rider. Accidents, serious ones, can happen regardless of safety measures riders take. For my fellow riders who read our blog, I am not going to talk about family law in this article. Instead, I am going to talk to you about the law firm of Binsar & Chase, the best motorcycle accident attorneys in California that I know and recommend – B. Robert Farzad.
Hiring the best Orange County motorcycle accident attorney is the last thing on my mind when I ride through Santiago Canyon, Live Oak, Trabuco or any of the other scenic routes the O.C. has to offer. Like you, I don’t think about an accident when I ride. I think about the open road.

So who should file first? You or your spouse? Let’s take a closer look.
A divorce filing is often equated with “picking a fight.” The mentality is, if you file for divorce first, then you’re the one who wanted it and therefore you’re somehow the bad guy or girl. This concerns spouses and make them hesitate to file even when they know that the marriage is over and divorce is inevitable. The other side of this coin is that if you file first, you get to control the process because you are the petitioner.
