For people who are anticipating a divorce, or any other situation where they might require Family Law assistance, Amundson Law Office offers a free initial consultation so potential new clients have the opportunity to ask questions and see if they feel like the law office is a good fit for them.

For anyone going through a divorce, the legal team at Amundson Law Office will keep them informed every step of the way. They believe it’s never too early to contact an attorney to help prepare for the divorce process because developing a plan to handle all of the financial and custody issues that may come up during the divorce takes time.
The first step in the divorce process, legally, is “filing” for divorce, which is the process of filling out and sending or receiving paperwork to petition the court for a divorce. Since minor mistakes in this paperwork can lead to many major pitfalls, Amundson Law Office recommends having an attorney assist in the process of completing the paperwork to ensure it’s done correctly. Once this paperwork has been filed, a person going through a divorce may want to file for temporary support or custody. Every situation is different, but if one spouse, for example, does not have an income, that spouse will often be granted some kind of temporary financial support while the couple works on completing their divorce. Custody is determined on a case-by-case basis where the best interests of the children is taken into consideration before an agreement can be set up. Lisa Amundson is an experienced child custody attorney and can help clients navigate the custody process.
Once the divorce has been filed and temporary support and custody agreements have been arranged, the divorce goes through a “discovery process” where all of the financial documents relevant to the relationship are made available to both parties. This can be helpful in situations where one spouse has been handling all the financial matters of a household and is withholding that information from the other spouse during the divorce. With all of the information in the hands of all parties, it is time to work out the custody and financial issues of the divorce, and Attorney Lisa Amundson will protect her client's rights and pursue the best possible outcomes for their families. The courts will determine the best agreement for the children involved, and a period of negotiations is entered where both parties and their attorneys work out an agreement that both parties can agree on.
