Divorce and Dissolution
With and Without Children
The rate of divorce continues to rise in the United States, with nearly 50 percent of all marriages ending in dissolution. Going through a divorce is notably one of the most difficult times in an individual’s life—both emotionally and financially. To aid in the dissolution of marriage, every state has established divorce laws that govern child custody and support, alimony, property distribution, and other family related issues. It is extremely important for all parties to consult with a qualified and trusted divorce attorney to ensure their legal rights and interests are protected through every step of the divorce process.

Types of Divorce
While divorce laws vary according to state, every state recognizes two types of divorce:
Contested – In a contested divorce, the two parties are at odds and cannot agree on the terms of the divorce or the conditions of the dissolution, whether it involves a disagreement about child custody, allocation of debts, division of assets, etc. Most contested divorces are complex and result in huge financial and emotional losses for all parties involved.
Uncontested – An uncontested dissolution is usually less complex because both parties are in agreement with the terms of the divorce. Most uncontested divorces proceed quickly and are less costly. Family law judges and divorce lawyers may recommend the issues be handled out of court with the help of a mediator. However, it is essential that both parties retain legal counsel to ensure their rights and interests are maximized.
