A divorce attorney plays a crucial role in guiding you through the divorce process and advocating for your rights and interests. Navigating a divorce can be complex, and having a knowledgeable and experienced attorney by your side can help make sure your rights are protected.

A divorce attorney can:

  • Preparing and filing the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage or responding to your spouse’s petition
  • Collecting, reviewing and accounting of marital assets and liabilities
  • Identifying separate vs. marital property
  • Reviewing a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement to determine how it may affect property division
  • Negotiating a marital settlement agreement
  • Assessing whether you may be required to pay spousal maintenance or entitled to receive it
  • Putting together a parenting plan that is in the best interests of your children
  • Acting as a go-between for you and your spouse if personal contact is inadvisable
  • Representing you in court to resolve any disputes regarding child custody, spousal and/or child support, and property division
