Why You Need a Divorce Attorney
You may know that you are not required by law to hire a divorce attorney to handle your case. However, while nothing can stop you from handling your divorce on your own, it is recommended that you consult with a knowledgeable legal professional first. Family law is a complex area of practice and a lot is often at stake in these cases. The last thing you want to do is jeopardize your future by cutting corners on legal expenses.
Our team can help you file all the necessary paperwork on time, inform you of your legal options, search for hidden assets, and create personalized strategies to help achieve your goals.
Contested and Uncontested Divorce
There are two main types of divorce – contested and uncontested. If you and your spouse can see eye to eye on every key issue of your divorce, you can move forward with an uncontested divorce. If you disagree on even one issue, however, your divorce will be considered contested. Typically, uncontested divorces take less time and incur fewer legal fees.
Key Issues in a Divorce
Before your divorce is finalized, you and your spouse will have to negotiate the terms of your divorce or, if you cannot agree, go through litigation where a judge will determine the outcome on your behalf.
Here are some of the issues you may face:
- Child custody and visitation
- Property and asset division
- Debt division
- Spousal support
- Child support
If your circumstances change in the aftermath of your divorce, it is possible to modify some of these orders to accommodate any substantial changes you encounter.
