What To Expect During A Divorce Proceeding
When you file for divorce, you should expect the process to take several months. In some cases the divorce can be handled quickly, if both parties agree to the division of assets and financial responsibilities drawn up in the divorce agreement. Most of the time, however, it takes many meetings between the two parties before an agreement is made.
Often, the longest issue to resolve in a divorce is child custody arrangements and child support payments. When spouses ares unable to deal with each other, they often find it hard to agree on what is in the best interest of their children. We promise to work to make sure your children’s best interest is a priority in the case.
Once both parties have reached an agreement it will be submitted to the court for final approval. When the court approves, the divorce will be granted and the couple will no longer be married. Once the decree is filed with the clerk, all aspects of the agreement become a legally binding document and both parties must comply with the document. Additionally, the woman may resume her maiden name if she so desires at this time.
