Comprehensive legal service throughout the divorce process
We are dedicated to giving you the information you need from free initial consultation through every step of the divorce process:
Divorce petition. The divorce process begins when one spouse files the divorce petition and serves the petition on the other spouse.
Response. After receiving the divorce petition your spouse has 30 days to file a response. If no response is filed, the divorce proceeds and your attorney prepares and submits a judgment to the court.
Discovery. During discovery, the parties exchange documents and information about assets and income. Discovery may also include depositions or interrogatories regarding financial and other matters.
Temporary orders. Either spouse may file with the court for temporary orders on custody and support while the divorce is pending.
Settlement through mediation or collaborative divorce. The court may order mediation, or you and your spouse may opt to engage in voluntary mediation to resolve divorce issues so you can avoid or reduce litigation in court. If you are able to settle all the issues, a settlement agreement is drafted and filed with the court. Your divorce becomes final six months and one day after the divorce petition was served.
Litigation. If a settlement agreement cannot be reached or certain issues cannot be resolved, the spouses proceed to court. Once all matters have been determined, the court enters a judgment and the divorce becomes final after the waiting period has elapsed.
