child custody

child support

spousal support

Uncontested Divorce Lawyer – Walking You Through the Process

If you and your spouse wish to divorce and are on amicable terms, our divorce lawyers can offer you two methods to finalize your divorce. The first approach would include filing the divorce initial paperwork and then serving your spouse. This would allow your spouse to answer before finalizing the agreement in court. The second approach would eliminate the waiting period, as we could have your spouse do not fie an answer, while we draft the stipulated judgment and then file the last package 30 days after service of process. This is less expensive than the first approach.

Regardless of the method you would like us to take, we promise to be there with you throughout the process and ensure that all necessary steps are handled properly.
