Your Unique Legal Needs Are Our Priority
Dissolution & Divorce
Both dissolution and divorce can be extremely stressful and emotional, which is why our attorneys offer services to help you move forward.
A dissolution is the process we undergo when both spouses are in mutual agreement. Property division and child custody and support will be negotiated before the dissolution is filed, and the marriage will be ended within 30 to 90 days of filing.
A divorce is when a marriage is ended without the agreement of one of the spouses, or in the case that a spouse is absent. In the case of divorce, reasons for divorce must be presented. Property division and child custody and support can either be negotiated or will be settled in court. If the divorce is contested, the process may become lengthy.
Our attorneys are here to help you through all negotiations and to ensure you and your children are able to maintain quality of life after the divorce or dissolution.

If you are in substantial debt, filing for bankruptcy is an option that can help you start over. Bankruptcy is not the end of the world—it will only take a few years to gain a good credit score. Most people are able to get brand-new credit cards right away post-bankruptcy. It will only take around three years for you to be able to apply for a mortgage. If you are considering filing for bankruptcy, our attorneys will help you through the process of petitioning under the Bankruptcy Act.
A Chapter 7 bankruptcy completely eliminates your debt, providing you with a fresh start.
A Chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to keep your home and your car. All of your debts will be consolidated into one payment, and you will be provided with a payment plan through which you can catch up on your back payments. Your student loans and mortgages will be eliminated.
If you find yourself unemployed and are struggling to find another job, our attorneys can help you seek out unemployment benefits if you qualify. These benefits will help you financially to get through this time, so you can focus on finding the job that will further your career.
