Guiding You Through The Divorce Process

The process of divorce can differ a great deal from one case to another. Some people are simply ready to stop being married, and they encounter little difficulty in documenting the details of the terms on which their marriage will dissolve. Perhaps more commonly, people need help developing and expressing realistic goals for themselves and their children on matters ranging from property division to parenting time. We make sure that our advice and recommended strategies match your goals and circumstances.

Our law firm also offers a range of alternatives for obtaining reliable legal counsel. If your divorce is uncontested or relatively simple, much of the work can be done by paralegals or by attorneys under a limited scope engagement. More complex cases might require the input of financial experts or mental health professionals. In some situations, points of potential dispute can be resolved through divorce mediation or a collaborative law approach to divorce issues.
