DIVORCE IS A PROCESS
Ending a marriage normally begins with the decision to separate. The process includes making decisions involving:
These decisions can be easy or complex, depending on the parties involved and whether there are disputes that must be resolved.
The word “divorce” only applies to the actual dissolution of the marriage. Most of the details must be decided prior to the actual divorce decree being issued. In fact, if you are seeking alimony or property division, you have to file those claims before the divorce order is granted or you may lose your right to do so. The divorce attorneys at Averett Family Law are here to help you understand the divorce process and work with you to achieve a positive outcome.
