Divorce proceedings usually evoke a lot of uncertainty and anxiety. They are usually once-in-a-lifetime events that have major ramifications on the lives of everyone involved. There are pressing issues that need to be addressed such as the split in finances, the future of the children, and the distribution of assets accrued over the course of the marriage. In such time, family members usually look to experienced and effective lawyers that have the proven experience of navigating legal waters to guide them.
The first step in the divorce process is the filing which starts the process to petition the court for a divorce. The next step is to file for temporary support and custody which puts some structure in place while the couple is working through the divorce process. In the next step, the discovery process allows both parties equal access to documentation for mortgages, retirement accounts, and other key financial information. Next, the lawyers negotiate over the custody and finances. Lawyers on each side try their best to fight for their client’s rights and to pursue the best possible outcome. Finally, when all the major issues have been settled, the lawyers submit the agreement to the family law court for approval. If both sides are unable to reach a settlement, the trial process is initiated.
