What Type of Divorce is Right For You?
Start by educating yourself on the options available to understand what makes the most sense for your specific situation. We provide representation for ALL types of divorces including uncontested divorce, mediated divorce, collaborative divorce, litigated divorce, and limited scope representation.
When spouses are in general agreement about getting a divorce and dividing up assets and debts they may be able to have an uncontested divorce.
In a mediated divorce, one attorney handles the case and acts as a neutral third party in which they provide no legal advice but help both spouses work toward resolution.
Collaborative divorce is a specialized divorce process that is completely controlled by the parties and their attorneys with an upfront agreement to avoid litigation.
Litigation is when your attorney files a petition for divorce and takes it through procedural steps for litigation which may include numerous hearings and possibly a trial.
Not ready for divorce? Legal separation might be right for you.
Some people want to file for divorce right away once they decide the marriage is no longer working. Other people need more time, in those situations filing for a legal separation may be the best option. Legal separation is also an option for parties who want a divorce but are avoiding it for health insurance, tax, or religious purposes.
