If we must converse or meet with your spouse, he or she will be asked to sign documentation attesting to our notification that we represent only you and not him or her, and that we cannot and did not give them any legal advice.
We also prepare all other papers that are necessary to start and complete the divorce itself.
We give you the entire settlement package to take home for your spouse’s approval and signature. We think it is a good idea for your spouse to hire their own lawyer, or at least have the papers approved by a lawyer of their choice.
When everything is signed and returned to us, we file the papers with the court and get your hearing date.
You must be present in court with us on the assigned day and we will present your testimony and signed papers to the court for entry. Your spouse’s presence is welcome, but is not mandatory because everything is pre-signed.
Typically, your divorce is finalized on the day we are in court.
