Contested Divorce

A contested divorce can be a very long and emotional process. Is divorce the right option for you? Before you start this very long process, be sure it is the right decision for you. If it is and you are unable to agree to the terms of the divorce; including distribution of assets, maintenance (also known as alimony), and if children are involved custody, visitation, or child support, then you may need both a lawyer and the court to help resolve the dispute with your spouse. This is where we come in. We will represent you from commencement to trial to appeal (if necessary).

Uncontested Divorce

Can you come to an amicable agreement with your spouse and are you both in agreement that your marriage should end? If so, you may proceed with an uncontested divorced. Although no divorce is simple, an uncontested divorce is the least stressful and emotionally draining of the means of dissolving a marriage. We are here to make it even more seamless for you. If you are considering filing for divorce even if uncontested, call us—we can help.

Modification Order

Has there been substantial change in financial circumstances since an award of maintenance or child support? If so, you may be able to have a previous order of the court modified.
Call us — we can help.
