The Divorce Process

Going through a divorce can be an overwhelming experience. Understanding the divorce process can help alleviate some of the uncertainty and anxiety associated with it. Here, we’ll provide an overview of the steps involved in a typical divorce case:

  1. Initial Consultation
    Your divorce journey begins with an initial consultation. During this meeting, you’ll discuss your specific circumstances, goals, and concerns. This is your opportunity to ask questions and gain a clear understanding of what to expect throughout the process. Your initial consultation with us is always free.
  2. Filing for Divorce
    The divorce process officially starts with the filing of a divorce petition in the appropriate court. We’ll guide you through the necessary paperwork, ensuring all legal requirements are met.
  3. Legal Discovery
    Discovery is the process in which both parties exchange information and evidence relevant to the divorce case. This phase helps build the foundation for negotiations or trial.
  4. Negotiations
    In many cases, divorce can be settled through negotiations, which can save time, money, and emotional stress. Our attorneys are experienced negotiators and will work to secure a fair and reasonable settlement on your behalf.
  5. Mediation
    Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution method where a neutral third party helps couples come to an agreement. It can be a more amicable and cost-effective way to resolve issues related to your divorce.
  6. Litigation
    In cases where negotiations and mediation do not lead to a resolution, litigation may be necessary. We will advocate fiercely for your rights and interests in court, ensuring a fair outcome.
  7. Post-Divorce Matter
    After the divorce is finalized, there may be ongoing matters such as child custody modifications or spousal support adjustments. Our firm will continue to provide legal support as needed.

Divorce Litigation vs. Mediation

When considering a divorce, it’s crucial to understand the key differences between divorce litigation and mediation. Each approach has its advantages, and the choice will depend on your specific circumstances and goals:

Divorce Litigation

  • Adversarial Process: Litigation is an adversarial process where both parties present their cases to a judge.
  • Formal Court Proceedings: Litigation involves formal court hearings and a trial if necessary, which can be time-consuming and costly.
  • Decisions Made by the Judge: In litigation, the judge makes decisions regarding property division, child custody, and support.
  • Less Control: You have less control over the outcome, as decisions are in the hands of the court.


  • Collaborative Approach: Mediation is a more collaborative approach, where both parties work with a neutral mediator to reach an agreement.
  • Informal Setting: Mediation occurs in a more informal setting, and the process is often less time-consuming and less expensive.
  • Control Over Decisions: You and your spouse have more control over the final settlement, as you actively participate in the decision-making process.
  • Emphasis on Communication: Mediation focuses on open communication and finding mutually acceptable solutions, which can lead to more amicable outcomes.
