What can you expect with a divorce case?
The first step in the divorce process is to file a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage with the court. This document starts the legal proceedings and sets forth your grounds for divorce. Once the petition is filed, your spouse will be served with papers and given a chance to respond.
If your spouse does not respond to the petition, you may be able to proceed with a default divorce. However, even in a default divorce, it is important to have an attorney on your side to ensure that the process goes smoothly and that your rights are protected.
If your spouse does respond to the petition, you will then enter the discovery phase of the divorce. During discovery, each spouse will have the opportunity to request information and documents from the other spouse. This is often done through the use of subpoenas.
After discovery, the next step is to negotiate a settlement agreement. This is where having an experienced divorce attorney can really make a difference. Our team will fight for a fair and equitable settlement that protects your rights and interests.
If we are unable to reach a settlement agreement, the next step is to go to trial. Our team is experienced in divorce litigation and will fight for your interests at trial.
