- What are the consequences of getting this ticket?
- How can I best prepare for the hearing?

Some couples are able to reach a mutual understanding about the ending of their marriage. When they can agree on the resolution of all outstanding issues, including the division of marital assets and debts, payment of spousal and/or child support, and custody and visitation matters regarding their children, it may be possible for them to obtain an uncontested divorce. This can spare the family both the expense and stress of a contested divorce.
Our firm can discuss your marital circumstances and options moving forward. We can draft a property settlement agreement to commemorate any agreement with your spouse and we strive to make the process as efficient as possible for a flat, reasonable fee, if possible.

With that in mind, we can assist and advise on the following issues:
- Custody and visitation;
