There are many issues that need to be addressed in a divorce situation that include mediation between the couple seeking separation and care and custody of minor children. We highly recommend mediation to avoid the costly process (emotionally and financially) of going to court; however, in cases where issues cannot be solved through negotiation, we will take all actions needed to protect our clients’ interests in the courtroom.

Divorce issues can include legal separation, divorce, uncontested divorce, annulment, alimony (also called spousal support), custody and visitation, division of property and debt settlements, and paternity. In addition, following a divorce, it is always important to update your estate planning documents or draw up an estate plan—even if it’s your first estate plan.
