Legal Representation For Contested And Uncontested Divorce
An effective family law attorney understands that while the circumstances surrounding no two divorces are alike, they all boil down to one important goal: Help ensure that a client is treated fairly during what can be a lengthy, emotionally taxing and intimidating legal process.
As an experienced Ridgeland civil trial attorney, Frank Garrison is no stranger to taking an aggressive stance with the other side in a case when the stakes are high. In family law, however, the bottom line isn’t always the only concern. In some if not most cases, clients also want to protect their children, or maintain cordial or even friendly relationships with their spouses. At our firm, you will work with a lawyer who knows how to help protect your parental and other legal rights while getting the next chapter of your life off to a positive start.
Learn When An Uncontested Divorce May Work For You
If you and your spouse are splitting on amicable terms, an uncontested divorce may offer both of you (as well as your children) a way to minimize the emotional turmoil, time and even expense that many assume are a required part of the divorce process.
In an uncontested divorce, you and your spouse agree on the basic terms, which most often include:
- Child custody and visitation
- Alimony (spousal support)
- Property and debt division
While we cannot represent both you and your spouse, we will work closely with your spouse’s lawyer to ensure that your divorce decree covers all necessary issues, and do everything we can to finalize your divorce in the shortest amount of time possible.
In Situations Of Conflict, Our Firm Is Ready To Fight For You
Of course, not every divorce can be resolved amicably. If you and your spouse have strong disagreements over issues like child custody or spousal support, it will be necessary to litigate your divorce in family court. Our clients have the advantage of attorney Frank Garrison‘s significant trial experience — he has learned how to anticipate the best arguments the other side is likely to make and always be prepared with a response to strengthen our clients’ cases.
