Domestic Relations

Divorces, dissolutions, custody, visitation, and child support; it can be a lot to handle for any individual. Not only are these matters time consuming, they can also be physically and mentally exhausting. That is why it is worth retaining an attorney experienced in these matters to assist you in a stressful time. While your lawyer cannot eliminate all of your anxiety and stress, knowing that you have a lawyer on your side, ready to fight for you and your family can give you peace of mind.

Commonly asked Domestic Relation Questions:

Whatís the difference between a divorce and a dissolution?

Divorces and dissolutions both end in the termination of a marriage.

The main difference between a divorce and dissolution is the that in a divorce the parties have issues that they are not in agreement on and, therefore, have to go to court to settle them. These issues and disputes often involve matters such as spousal support, the division of personal property and real estate, claims on pensions and retirement accounts, custody of children and visitation, and as you can imagine, the list goes on. Contested divorces tend to be lengthy and require numerous court filings and hearings, before a magistrate or judge ever comes to a decision.

In a dissolution, the parties must first come to an agreement on settling all the issues of the marriage. This settlement is reduced to a writing known as a Separation Agreement. The Separation Agreement details the division of all property, which parent will be the residential (custodial) parent, and the non-residential parentís parenting time (visitation) if there are minor children, and must addresss any and all matters that need to be resolved to end the marriage. The Separation Agreement, after approval by the parties, is then submitted to the appropriate domestic relations court together with supporting documentation required by the court. The court hearing date is set and both parties and their attorney(s) attend the hearing.

Do I need an attorney to represent me in a divorce or custody matter?

Not necessarily. But, effective legal representation is critical in matters involving the protection of your children, property, job, pension, other assets and allocation of debts; all of which may be impacted by a divorce, dissolution or custody matter. The attorneys at BOWERS WHITE LLC can provide you with knowledgeable and effective legal representation in these matters.
