Each step of the way, we will provide you with a cost-benefit analysis of your goal so that you can make an informed and rational decision about when is practical to fight or settle an issue throughout the dissolution of your marriage.
Whether your divorce is amicable or contentious, we will help outline your divorce goals and prepare you for your divorce. We provide you with professional and personalized representation throughout your divorce at affordable rates.
If your divorce is contentious, in that you and your spouse cannot agree on certain issues, then those issues will be brought to trial before the judge, and they will make the decision. We will strongly advocate for you at trial before the judge. We are tough on opposing counsel. We will fight for our client’s interests and rights. We work diligently towards achieving your goals and are mindful of your needs.
An uncontested divorce is the ideal way to end your marriage. Where you and your spouse come to an agreement on the terms of your divorce to resolve the dissolution of your marriage and avoid costly and time-consuming litigation. An uncontested divorce allows you and your spouse to determine the outcome of your divorce, instead of giving the decision-making power to a judge who does not know your family. Often you can arrive at compromises and solutions that are easier to accept than a judge’s decision. You can decide the terms that will be in the interest of you and your family.
When you are seeking an uncontested divorce, you may obtain a flat fee or a much lower cost than if you were to litigate your divorce. You can obtain your divorce decree in less time with minimal trips to court. In the simplest terms, an uncontested divorce is a divorce that is settled without the intervention of a judge or court. An uncontested divorce is often more civil and results in much less stress and expense for the entire family.
We will meet with you and your spouse to prepare the documents necessary to resolve and address all the terms of your marriage settlement agreement and judgment for dissolution of marriage. We will present the agreements to the judge for approval and for entry of your divorce.
