An uncontested divorce is when two parties come to a mutual agreement as to how to dissolve their union, set a custody agreement and dissolve property. Even in this case, it is always to seek legal counsel before making final arrangements. Take precautions to ensure child support payments meet requirements set by the state and ultimately that there is not misleading language or fine print.
A contested divorce is when two parties cannot agree as to some or all aspects of dissolving their union including division of property, custody arrangement and payments. It is imperative clients seek legal counsel early-on in a contested divorce to ensure that all rights can be obtained.
Because divorce is an emotional process, it is necessary to have a strong support system. Divorce mediation assists clients in coming to agreement on division of belongings, custody as well as future child support payments and alimony. Allowing an attorney to handle the lengthy mediation process of a contested divorce can save time and much stress.
Regardless if a spouse wants to pay it, they are often required to pay alimony if one spouse was significantly dependent on the other. However, alimony cannot be abused. Having an attorney will help you determine if your settlement may involve alimony.
Legal separation is a logical and often necessary step in divorce to prevent further financial or legal damage inflicted on one spouse by the other. Filing for legal separation may assist in protecting your assets during the divorce process.
Annulment is not the same thing as a divorce. A divorce ends a marriage. An annulment rewinds a marriage so that legally it never happened.
Child Custody and Support
Child custody and support is the most important factor in a divorce involving minor children. An attorney can negotiate on behalf of the client to ensure the childrens best interest is put first and adequate support is provided for their needs.
Prenuptial agreements are helpful in setting out a plan for distribution of assets and other arrangements prior to entering in the union. In some cases, prenuptial agreements can be overridden. Consulting an attorney in divorce cases involving a prenuptial agreement is essential to comprehend the impact it will have on a divorce.
Temporary Protective Orders
Temporary orders during the divorce process can be instrumental in protecting your children during a custody dispute. Securing a temporary order for custody is a process that one should not enter into without an attorney.
In the event one party contests the proposed divorce settlement or the divorce itself, a protective order may be necessary if violence is suspected. A spouse should not delay in seeking protection for themselves or their children if they feel that a protective order may be necessary. Consulting an attorney is the quickest way to understand this process.
Veronica Valentine walks with her clients every step of the way, from the initial meeting to discuss filling to the time that proceedings conclude.
