You Don’t Have to Navigate This On Your Own.

Can I file for divorce if my spouse is not in agreement to get a divorce?
Yes. Each party is entitled to file for divorce despite one spouse’s wishes to remain married. In the event the spouse does not participate in the proceedings, there is an option to proceed by default. Schedule a consultation to discuss the process of divorce based on your individual circumstances.
Do I have to be separated before I can file for divorce?
No. The statute requires a period of separation that does not require the parties to be physically separated in different houses. Rather, it uses a separation date of when the parties began living separate lives and no longer wished to be married. The parties can continue to cohabitate during the pendency of the divorce proceedings. Schedule a consultation to discuss the issue of separation and application time frame based on your individual circumstances.
How long will the divorce take?
Every case is unique, so there is no blanket timeline as several factors contribute to how quickly (and costly) the case may be resolved. Some of these factors include the court’s availability, the cooperation of the parties and attorneys, the complexity of financial matters, whether there are children involved and any immediate safety concerns. Schedule a consultation to discuss a projected time frame based on your individual circumstances.
