What Is The Divorce Process?

Divorce is never easy. While it is true that there are some situations where couples may be able to end their marriages relatively quickly with minimal conflict, every divorce represents the end of a partnership that was meant to be permanent. Even in "simple" divorce cases, spouses will need to deal with the emotional fallout of ending their relationship, and they will need to take the correct steps to ensure that they will be able to move forward with their lives once their marriages have been legally terminated.

To ensure that you will be able to get through your divorce successfully, it is important to work with an attorney who can provide you with aggressive representation and experienced advice. The lawyers of Hatton & Hatton, PLLC can provide invaluable legal help and support as you work to end your marriage. We can answer any questions you may have, address your concerns, advise you on the legal issues that may affect you, and help reduce confusion and stress as you go through the divorce process. By attending to your needs and creating a custom-tailored strategy that is focused on your goals, we can make sure you will be able to get through this difficult time and move on to a positive future.

Each Divorce Is Different

When you are going through a divorce, there are many questions that you may have about the procedures that will be followed, the ways you can protect your rights, and the steps you can take to resolve disputes with your spouse. While every family is different, and each divorce is different, there are some common factors that will need to be considered in each case. With our experience in multiple types of divorce cases and our focus on providing high-quality legal representation, we can make sure you will be able to address all of your legal issues effectively.

There are multiple ways to address divorce-related issues and finalize the dissolution of a marriage. With our experience in both contested and uncontested divorce cases, we can advise you on the best approach to take. We can help you determine whether mediation may be a good solution for resolving disputes with your spouse, and we can help you negotiate a divorce settlement and complete your divorce with minimal court appearances. However, if you have encountered contentious disputes or cannot agree with your spouse on certain issues, we can help you understand your options for resolving your divorce through litigation in court.

We can help you address all issues that may arise during your divorce, including:

  • Property division - You and your spouse will need to determine how to divide your community property fairly and equitably. We can help you understand the best ways to address multiple types of marital assets, including in high asset divorce situations involving high-value property or other complex financial issues.
  • Spousal support - Depending on how long you have been married or other factors that may affect the financial situation of you and your spouse, you may need to determine whether one of you will pay financial support to the other. We can help you understand whether you are eligible for spousal maintenance, or we can assist in negotiating agreements involving contractual alimony.
  • Child custody - If you and your spouse have children, you will need to create a parenting agreement that details how you will share conservatorship (also known as legal custody), and you will also need to create a workable visitation schedule. We can ensure that your parental rights and your children's best interests will be protected as you address these issues.
  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements - If you and your spouse had a marital agreement in place, the terms of this agreement may determine how issues related to property and finances will be handled during your divorce. We can ensure that you fully understand how a prenup or postnup will affect the outcome of your case.
