Divorce

Divorce can bring a great deal of stress to your life, the lives of your children, and even the lives of your friends and extended family members. It can also have a tremendous impact on your future. The complex emotional and legal matters involved in divorce must be addressed thoroughly, with care and as efficiently as possible so you can move forward with your life in a positive way.

Considering divorce? Our lawyers can explain the legal process clearly, prepare you for what's ahead and help you get through it with minimal damage. To learn more about your options and what we can do to help, we encourage you to call or contact us online today.

Our firm can help you resolve all of the important issues associated with both contested and uncontested divorce matters, including:

  • Divorce mediation
  • Asset, debt and property division
  • Pension plan and retirement fund allocation
  • Alimony (spousal support)
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Child support
  • Custodial parent relocation
  • Post-divorce modification of custody and support agreements

Our firm's lead divorce attorney, Joanne E. Ashley, devotes the bulk of her practice to representing families in crisis. In advising and representing you during the divorce process, she will be able to answer any questions you have from start to finish and provide you with clear and honest assessments of your legal options at every stage of the case until it’s resolved.

Lastly, although our firm has extensive litigation experience and is prepared to take your case to court to get the right result, divorce litigation is often a lose-lose proposition. This is why we prefer and strive for the speedier, more cost-effective approach of resolving the issues out of court whenever possible and appropriate to do so.
