When you and your significant other were standing at the alter, I'm sure divorce was the last thought going through either one of your minds. Unfortunately, divorce does happen and its nothing to be ashamed about.
Howard Haake understands a divorce is more than likely one of the toughest decisions you had to make, or a decision that was made for you. We can help guide you through the process of the easiest, uncontested, divorces as well as the heavily litigated contested divorce.
Despite if you are the person filing or the spouse answering a divorce petition, our attorneys can walk you through the process while protecting the rights of you and of your children.
Factors of a Divorce
Division of Assets
Child Custody and Support
An uncontested divorce is just that; uncontested. This is where both parties have decided that marriage is no longer in the best interest of the parties and/or their children. Coming to an amicable agreement among yourself is not only the easiest way, but the cheapest way to end your marriage.
The contested divorce is the type in which the spouses cannot arrive at an agreement on one or more key issues in order to conclusively terminate their marriage. When spouses cannot arrive at an agreement, even with the assistance of their legal counsel (if any), they must approach a court to adjudicate their dispute. Contested divorces are commonplace now, especially since there are so many different issues to resolve during the course of terminating a marriage.
