Deciding to divorce or dissolving a marriage can be a difficult and emotional process. Often divorce involves custody and support of children, division of financial assets like investment accounts and real estate, and spousal support among other issues. Hiring the right divorce attorney is an important decision, as you’ll need legal support and advice throughout the process to protect your rights. At Viola Law, we have 28+ years of experience in family law. We are mindful that separating or dissolving a marriage or domestic partnership requires sensitivity and personalized attention.
Dissolving a Marriage or Domestic Partnership
Dissolving a marriage can be a complicated process. Because of the complexity of child custody, child support, spousal support, and division of debts and property, it’s important to understand all your options and rights when separating from or divorcing a partner.
At Viola Law, we’ll first meet with you to understand your unique situation and discuss your goals for separating from your partner or dissolving your marriage. We’ll also discuss the areas of family law that pertain to you:
- Filing for divorce or legal separation
- Divorce litigation
- Dividing real estate, financial accounts and other assets
- Child custody and visitation rights
- Post-marital agreements
- Child and/or spousal support
- Establishing paternity and other related legal rights
- Domestic violence and restraining orders
- Domestic partnership agreements
- Divorce mediation or private judging
If you and your spouse or partner have reached agreements on some or all of your issues, then mediation may be the best solution for you. At Viola Law we have a mediator on staff who can help put your agreements in writing, make sure the agreements are legally binding, and help you complete your divorce paperwork. If you and your spouse have not reached any agreements, but wish to keep your case out of the traditional public courtroom setting, then hiring our private judge might be best for you.
