What can you expect from divorce proceedings?

Divorces can be lengthy and tedious, but you can rely on our divorce attorney to be there every step of the way. Most divorces in the area involve:

  • Filing a petition (usually involves court fees)
  • Waiting for the other party to respond within 20 days
  • Discussing any contested assets like child support and custody
  • Filing motions (status quo is a motion that prohibits parties from disposing of marital property)
  • Negotiating

If you're not able to come to an agreement by negotiating yourself, you'll enter mediation. If you're not able to resolve your case in mediation, then witnesses and evidence will be brought in and your trial will start. Contact our family law firm now to begin divorce proceedings.
