Agreed Divorces (also known as Uncontested Divorces) occur when both spouses agree on each and every aspect of the divorce matter. Often, we help clients by offering creative suggestions for ways to work out a settlement instead of pursuing relief in Court.
Complex divorces (also known as Contested Divorces) occur when the spouses do not agree on every aspect of the divorce. This can be one issue or a multitude of issues including custody and/or property. As your attorneys, we work to prepare the matter and you for courtroom litigation.
