Our law firm primarily focuses on the following aspects of family law:
A summary dissolution is an easy way to end a domestic partnership or get a divorce compared to a standard divorce. Furthermore, it's less expensive and incorporates much less paperwork. However, not everyone can apply for this process. Only couples who have been married for less than five years, have no children together, own relatively little, do not want spousal support and agree on how to split any property can apply for a summary dissolution.
A default divorce occurs when one of the spouses doesn't respond to the Complaint for Divorce, which can also include a list of claims. The respondents have 30 days to respond to the lawsuit; if they do not, the judge can grant your requests claimed in the filed divorce paperwork. An uncontested divorce occurs when both partners agree on the five key areas of disagreement - child custody (if applicable), child support (if applicable), asset division, debt division and spousal support. It's important to note that child custody and child support are only relevant in the presence of children. When there are no disputes or objections, there is no need for a court appearance.
A contested divorce occurs when both spouses are not in agreement, and one party initiates the divorce. Some reasons couples file for a contested divorce include adultery, abandonment, child custody and support, inability to decide how to divide assets, etc.
By a marital settlement agreement, couples who have mutually decided to go their separate ways can do so without any judicial intervention. The legal document includes matters that concern the couple, such as the division of assets, child custody, financial support, etc.
