Crafting a Settlement Agreement
A marriage is more than a personal relationship. It’s also a binding legal contract. As such, it needs to be officially dissolved by a family law judge.
Schlegel Law Group provides legal representation and counsel pertaining to the following areas of family law:
- Spousal & child support
- Guardianship petitions & disputes
- Collaborative divorce
- Division of marital assets & debts
- Divorce mediation
- Partition actions
- Divorce modification
- Juvenile dependency
- Estate planning
Although some divorces are simple and can be handled with a minimum amount of discussion and delay, most divorces, particularly if you have children or significant property, are far more complicated.
The divorce process can take from a few months to as long as several years. The level of cooperation between you and your spouse will determine whether the process proceeds in a timely and smooth manner. In most divorce cases, we’ll attempt to reach out to the other party to find common ground and create a settlement agreement that is mutually beneficial.
If you believe your divorce could be contentious and courtroom litigation is a possibility, you’ll want a highly competent, experienced lawyer you can trust. Schlegel Law Group is skilled in witness preparation, courtroom dialogue and cross-examinations. We will be on your side vigorously protecting your best interests every step of the way.
