Traditional Divorce

There are two primary ways you may terminate a marriage: you can either reach an agreement regarding all major issues related to your situation – such as child custody matters and property division – or you can present your case to the Court and ask a judge or magistrate to make those decisions for you.

How Divorce Works

A Divorce is a lawsuit filed in a party’s county of residence by one spouse against another. Sometimes a Divorce includes third parties, such as banks, life insurance companies or other financial institutions. In the event that the parties cannot agree on substantive aspects of the termination of their marriage, such as child custody, property division, or spousal support, your attorney must present your case to the Court for determination. This can be in many forms, and can takes days, weeks, months, or even years, and you will often have to help your attorney compile the appropriate and relevant facts. Your attorney will also determine the best strategy to present your case to the judge or magistrate assigned to decide the disputed aspects of the case.

A traditional divorce case can be very stressful and taxing on you and your family and can be avoided by reaching an agreement with your partner through a Dissolution of Marriage. You can accomplish a Dissolution several different ways, such as through Collaborative Law, traditional negotiation, or mediation. However, an agreement is not possible in all cases. The reason family law is so complex is because the legislature cannot account for every component that makes up your particular family and your unique situation.
