Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What should I expect during a divorce process?

A: The divorce process typically involves several stages, including filing the petition, discovery of assets and debts, negotiations or mediation, and potentially a trial if an agreement cannot be reached. Our attorneys will guide you through each step, explaining your rights and options along the way.

Q: How is child custody determined?

A: Child custody decisions are based on the best interests of the child. Factors considered include the child’s relationship with each parent, the ability of each parent to provide for the child’s needs, and the child’s preference (if they are of sufficient age). We work to present a compelling case for our clients’ desired custody arrangements.

Q: Can alimony be modified after a divorce is finalized?
