Divorce, Dissolution, and Other Methods of Termination
Deciding if terminating your marriage is right choice for you is a personal decision. A divorce lawyer can explain the legal ramifications involved, but ultimately the decision rests with the individuals involved.
When you make the difficult decision to terminate a marriage, however, a divorce lawyer can help you determine which method allowed by law may be best for you. Most people use the term “divorce” for all marriage terminations, but it is actually a specific type. Other types include dissolution, annulment, and separation.
A divorce lawyer can analyze your particular circumstances and advise which methods of termination are available—and preferable—to you.
What to Expect
The legal process of divorce or dissolution primarily involves dividing assets, determining whether one spouse has a legal obligation to provide spousal support (colloquially called “alimony”), and determining issues related to custody and care of any children.
A skilled divorce lawyer can review assets, discover hidden assets, and make a favorable case for a fair division of assets and adequate spousal support. A family law practitioner like Cameron B. Pedro can also advocate on behalf of your family to help ensure that your parental rights and your children are protected.
