Divorce & Family

Divorce & Family

Family Law includes a range of issues surrounding the rights and obligations of spouses and children. Yet when many people think of Family Law, they think divorce, for a good reason–an estimated 50% of marriages in the US end in dissolution.

Divorce – The Process

There are different processes to obtain a judgment for a divorce depending on if the case proceeds as a default, a default with an agreement or as a case that was contested. All cases start with the filing of a petition at the family law court. After disclosures are exchanged, the 30 day waiting period after a petition is served has been met, and any court ordered mediation and hearings have been attended or others orders have been made, the judge will sign the judgment to terminate the marriage. The timeline that the final documents are filed depends on each court’s backlog. The marriage terminates 6 months and 1 day after the responding party is served or when the final judgment is filed, whichever occurs last.
