Contested and uncontested divorce
In uncontested divorces, the parties agree to the terms of divorce. Contested cases involve issues between parties that cannot be settled amicably, such as equitable distribution of assets and liabilities, parenting plans, time-sharing, child support and alimony. Whether your case is uncontested or contested, we can advise you on your legal options.
Some unique requirements apply to divorce cases involving one or both spouses who are in the military, including:
- Residency requirements
- Subject-matter jurisdiction
- Equitable distribution of military retirement
- Certain legal protections for active duty military personnel
We can assist with your military divorce.
Equitable property division
A variety of personal and financial factors are taken into consideration before marital property is distributed between divorcing spouses. Property owned and acquired during the marriage, including all assets and debts, is termed marital property, and is subject to equitable distribution. Separate property is not. We fight to protect your interests in property division.
Alimony or spousal support
Alimony is a periodic payment for a fixed or unfixed time period. Whether you are the spouse who requires alimony or the spouse who faces the possibility of providing it, our attorneys have the experience to address your support issues.
Child custody and visitation
Child custody law governs who gets to have legal and practical rights over a child or children under the age of 18. We negotiate parenting agreements involving shared physical custody, schedules and visitation to reduce future modifications.
When marriages involving children dissolve, one parent often pays the other to support their children. We can help ensure that you receive or provide the appropriate amount of support for your child.
These are actions filed to help a parent protect important visitation, custody and support rights.
