The Divorce Process
A family law court case such as a divorce or custody matter begins when one spouse or parent files a petition or motion with the court. The other party will be required to file an “appearance” and response, and pay an appearance fee in order to participate in the process. The first court date is generally only procedural, with little or no arguments heard by the judge. Afterwards, depending on the issues involved, the parties may be required to exchange financial or other information. If the parties agree on how to resolve the issues, they will negotiate a settlement. If they do not agree, the matter will be set for hearing.
Resolving your Family Law Case
We keep our clients’ best interests in mind when representing them in settlement negotiations. This includes their interest in reducing any costly and unnecessary litigation. If you and your spouse are in agreement on all matters relating to your divorce or custody matter, our attorneys will draft the necessary paperwork and review the divorce papers or parenting agreement with you. If you have matters in dispute, we will bring your issues before a family law judge and fight for your interests in a contested hearing.
