A divorce is the dissolution of marriage. It divides property, establishes alimony, child custody, and child support when applicable. Our office handles Uncontested Divorce, Collaborative Divorce, and Contested Divorce cases.
Uncontested Divorce : Where both parties come to a complete agreement prior to the filing of divorce with the court regarding division of marital property, child custody, child support and alimony. If both parties agree on all issues, an agreement can save both parties financially, emotionally and assist in the future ability for the parties to communicate when children are involved. The divorce is contested if the parties disagree on any issue.
The parties work out an agreement on their own. One attorney or the same law firm should not represent both parties. Our law firm will form the settlement agreement in accordance with the parties' agreement. Our law firm cannot offer legal advice to an unrepresented spouse or a spouse that has an attorney. We encourage unrepresented spouses to contact other counsel for legal advice in regards to their divorce.
Collaborative Divorce: When you and your spouse are not in agreement, both are represented by an attorney and both desire to move forward with your divorce in a cooperative way. A collaborative divorce is not realistic for all divorcing spouses. However, when it is utilitized, it can save the parties financially and emotionally.
