-Dissolution: Husband & wife agree to all issues including property division, debt allocation, spousal support, and all child issues (support, custody & visitation). Both parties sign all documents and attend one brief hearing in order to end their marriage.  A Dissolution Attorney can make the process seamless.

-Uncontested Divorce: Either husband or wife wants to end the marriage. However, the other party is not willing to cooperate, but will not object to the issues in the case. A divorce is filed, a hearing is held, but the party that does not cooperate does not attend and the divorce is granted by default. This is a great option when a person does not know their spouse’s whereabouts.  A Divorce Attorney be be able to navigate the process.

-Contested Divorce: This is where the husband and wife disagree on at least one issue. It can be only one issue causing the problem or every issue. When you hear the word divorce, this is what comes to mind. Contested cases can be messy and lengthy. Experienced divorce attorneys can make all of the difference.

-Child Issues: Anytime a child was born during a marriage that is being ended, all child issues are handled in the divorce, including custody, visitation, and support. If a child is born outside of a marriage, the parties can agree or dispute the custody, visitation, and support. These matters are handled by a juvenile court, and the orders granted are valid until the child turns 18 and is out of high school.  Attorneys and Lawyers will be able to help, especially a well respected Custody Attorney.

-Modifications: If a court order is granted either through any family law matter including divorce, dissolution and cases involving children, the orders can be changed at a later date by requesting a modification. If all parties agree the modification is agreed. If the issues are disputed it is a contested matter that must be decided by the court.  An experienced attorney can make the process much easier.

-Other Family Law Matters: Adoption is where a non-biological parent actually gains the same rights as a biological parent through technical court proceedings. Protection Orders are granted by courts when a person is in fear of immediate harm as a means of legally keeping the wrongdoer away.
