Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the difference between contested and uncontested divorce?
In a contested divorce, neither party can agree on the various terms regarding child custody and support, spousal support, asset division, or visitation. In an uncontested divorce, both parties work together in a friendly manner to agree on all or a majority of the factors involved in a divorce.
Can I modify a court order after a divorce?
Due to many different circumstances, it is entirely possible to modify court orders regarding child custody, child support, and spousal support. Perhaps one parent is moving away, or one ex-spouse was able to secure gainful employment. To learn if your circumstance would justify a modification, reach out to us today and we will explain your options.
My spouse and I are divorcing. Is mediation an option?
Mediation is always an option for divorcing couples to consider if they want to keep the matters private and out of the courtroom. Furthermore, if you can amicably agree upon the terms of the divorce, mediation can save you time and money, as well as protect your family.
