Uncontested divorce

In a uncontested divorce, spouses and their representative attorneys draft a Marital Settlement Agreement that is mutually acceptable to both parties.  These agreements can include arrangements for child support and custody, spousal support or property division.

Contested Divorce can be complex.  It is not uncommon for separating couples to disagree about distribution of assets, division of debts, and other concerns.   There are many possible issues, including:

  • Temporary orders for support and custody
  • Use and possession orders governing the marital home or car
  • Domestic violence orders or protection
  • Restraining orders for the protection of property and assets
  • Child support, custody and visitation
  • Spousal support
  • Valuations of assets, such as stocks and family businesses
  • Jurisdiction concerns arising from parties filing in different countries

When divorcing, it is important to make certain tax matters are taken into consideration during property division.  Mitch recommends talking with an accountant and if necessary, Mitch can assist you in forming a corporation or partnership if it is deemed beneficial. 

Following a divorce, Mitch can assist you with post-judgment modifications of divorce, custody an support orders.  He can help you with issues of enforcement, including contempt motions.
