Matrimonial and Family Law
Everybody enters into a marriage thinking it is forever, but the truth today is that about half of all marriages end in divorce. If your marriage isn’t working, it’s okay to move on and start a new chapter in your life.
Dissolving a marriage involves the court implementing court orders regarding the equitable distribution of marital property, the payment of spousal support (alimony) and child support, and the division of child custody, including both physical custody and legal custody.
If your divorce is uncontested, you and your spouse can draft a marital settlement agreement that resolves all of these issues and submit the agreement to the judge for approval. If there are any issues you cannot agree on, the court will need to hold a hearing, listen to arguments and review evidence from both sides, and make a binding decision on the matter.
