The choice to end a marriage can be hard. It may be that you struggled to come to the decision, it may be something you have wanted for a while or it may be that you never saw it coming at all. Whatever sequence of events brought you to this point, you want to have a plan to move forward.

A divorce proceeding takes a combined life and seeks to untangle the tricky ties that have bound it together. Depending on the length of the marriage, that can be difficult. Families must work through such issues as:

Property division: the exact equitable distribution is often determined by the court, but recommendations and agreements are usually respected.

Custody and child support: if you and your soon-to-be ex have children coming to a custody and support arrangement is a necessity. It will not be a matter of parental rights, but what is in the best interest of the child.

Spousal support: also known as alimony, this may be one of the largest sticking points in a marriage. We will work with you to pursue an outcome in your best interests.

Modifications: Any agreement to support or custody may eventually need to change as time goes on.
