The decision to end a marriage is probably the most difficult and emotional decision you will ever make. Once either party makes the decision, it is important you consult an experienced family law attorney who can explain the process and your rights clearly and provide aggressive representation to protect you, your children and your property rights.
Divorce cases are either uncontested or contested matters. An uncontested divorce is one in which the parties agree on all issues involved and their agreement meets the requirements of the law as to custody, visitation and child support. This is the least expensive method of obtaining a divorce and can be completed in a relatively short period of time.

A contested divorce is one in which the parties cannot agree on all or some of the issues and the unresolved issues must be decided by the court or a jury.
The issues that must be resolved in a divorce include:
- Child support
- Health insurance
- Property division (house, cars, furniture, toys, pets, etc.)
- Attorney fees
We handle each contested divorce two ways. We attempt to resolve the issues through negotiation or mediation while preparing for trial. If the case is not settled, we try the case before a judge or jury. Approximately 90 percent of all divorces are eventually settled prior to a final trial. Our Attorneys have the knowledge, understanding and experience to help you reach a fair and equitable settlement of your divorce case, but if settlement cannot be reached, we will fight for your rights zealously.
