Affordable Divorce Lawyer

Divorce, or dissolution of marriage, is a legal proceeding that ends a marriage. While emotions may run high, you and your spouse must reach a resolution on matters surrounding the division of property and debts, child custody, visitation (parenting time), and questions of spousal support and child support. In resolving these matters, one or both parties will often hire the services of a professional divorce lawyer to provide guidance and to reach a settlement.

Divorce proceedings typically use one of four distinct conflict resolution processes: collaborative divorce; negotiated divorce settlements; divorce litigation; or divorce mediation. While divorces may be characterized as amicable or uncontested, these are not dispute resolution mechanisms within themselves. That is to say, an amicable divorce must eventually include the filing of a petition for dissolution of marriage and end with a judgment for dissolution of marriage.

While there are a variety of ways to settle a divorce, it is not necessary for a client to have a particular conflict resolution procedure in mind when beginning the divorce process. Many divorces borrow a little from collaborative law, negotiations, and litigation. An individual’s circumstances often dictate which approach he or she will use, but if you’re seeking guidance to get started, you can compare collaborative divorce vs. mediation to learn more. Remember, divorce is actually pretty common and nothing to be ashamed of; at Conniff Law, our affordable divorce attorneys will be able to provide you with guidance.
