If you are going through a divorce (dissolution of marriage), you may feel overwhelmed by the legal concerns in this time of distress. Because we understand that it is hard enough to deal with the emotional aspects of a divorce, our lawyers will guide you through the divorce process and handle all of your legal concerns:
- Property division: Simple to complex asset & liability division; we will seek or contest a qualified domestic relations order (QDRO) to divide retirement benefits, when appropriate.

A person should never make an agreement or attend a court hearing without the assistance of an experienced divorce lawyer. Once a ruling is issued or court papers are signed, it can be very difficult to get the orders changed even if they are not fair to one party or if the court made a mistake or did not have sufficient information to make a good decision. Divorce is a difficult, complicated and complex process and irreparable damage to your case can be created by improper legal actions being taken or ignored.
