While many cases can be resolved by dissolution (which is generally preferable because it is usually less expensive and less emotionally taxing), it means that both parties must agree on all terms and fully disclose property and income with due diligence from both sides. If this is not possible, we can assist separating couples through the process of divorce.
We can handle a number of complex divorce-related situations:
Once a divorce complaint is filed, the receiving party, or defendant, will be given time to respond. If both you and your spouse agree about things like property division, debt division, child custody, and child support, then divorce can be finalized without a trial and outside of court. This process is typically referred to as an uncontested divorce. If a mutual agreement cannot be made, however, the divorce will be contested and a court date will be set for trial.
Whether or not your case goes to trial, the issues you may face are the same. We are experienced in all types of divorce cases and we work with a network of trusted experts to support you when special expertise is needed. Whatever your specific case requires, we are here to help you.
