One of the greatest moments for human rights in our country took place in June of 2015, when the United States Supreme Court ruled the same-sex marriage must be legalized in all 50 states. With this ruling, a new world was opened up and many couples were able to finally have their relationship recognized by legal institutions. Along with any group of people who choose to get married, not all same-sex marriages will work out. At Renken Law Firm, we are here to help all couples reach a divorce agreement that works for their lifestyle. When any couple chooses to get married, they are choosing to combine their property and assets. Unfortunately, this means, whenever a couple chooses to separate and end their marriage, there is a long list of family matters that may come into play. These include but are not limited to, child custody, child support, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, division of property, visitation rights, child abuse, domestic violence, and more.
Is A Mediated Divorce Right For Me?
In litigated divorces, both spouses will have the option to hire an attorney for legal representation. These attorneys will work privately for one spouse and represent them in all court appearances before a judge. These two attorneys will engage in litigation- which can be a long and drawn out process, reporting back to their clients throughout the divorce negotiation process. However, it is possible for couples looking for a private alternative to divorce to skip the back and forth, drawn out, legal process by choosing to have their divorce mediated.
Some people feel apprehensive about divorce mediation because they are unfamiliar with the term and process. Divorce mediation is the route couples take when they wish to work together with a neutral third party to come to a divorce agreement that fits both of their needs and protects their rights. These divorces are different than traditional divorces because the details of these cases are kept private, the solutions are reached collaboratively, and there is no need to hire two attorneys- making it more cost efficient.
If you and your spouse are looking to file for divorce, the attorneys at Renken Law Firm can help you. Whether you choose to file a contested divorce, uncontested divorce, or are looking to have your divorce mediated by a neutral third party, we can help you.
