A Divorce Attorney Setting You Up For Long-Term Stability

Your life is going to change after a divorce. That may be obvious, but what is not so obvious is how the things you do while going through the divorce process can impact your post-divorce life.

When moving your case forward, you want to work with an attorney who takes the long view. This is not just about winning your case. It is about putting you in a position where you can be happy and financially stable for years to come.

Guidance For Uncontested Divorces

An uncontested divorce is a divorce where you and your spouse have reached agreements on all issues. There are no disputes that need to be resolved.

When you come to us with an uncontested divorce, we will carefully review your case to make certain nothing was overlooked. We will also verify that you understand everything you are agreeing to so that you are not surprised after the divorce is finalized. When everything is in order, our goal is to complete the divorce as quickly as possible. We handle these cases on a flat-fee basis, meaning you will know the cost upfront.

Finding The Best Resolution For Your Contested Divorce

Any divorce in which there are disputes that need to be resolved is considered a contested divorce. Even if there are only one or two disputes and everything else has been agreed upon, it is still contested. However, just because a divorce is contested does not necessarily mean it will go to trial. Disputes may be effectively resolved through negotiation or a form of alternative dispute resolution like mediation. Of course, if a courtroom battle is necessary to protect your interests, we are ready to fight for you.

We handle all types of divorce cases, including military divorce and same-sex divorce.

Experience In Military Divorce

Military divorces come with some notable differences compared to civilian divorces. Whether you are in the military on active duty, or you are married to the military member, we can help you navigate through this more complicated type of divorce. We understand the differences that a military spouse on active duty needs, and we work to make sure the divorce complies with their needs to ensure a swift resolution to the divorce.
