Legal Expertise You Can Count On
Posey Legal, P.C. was founded in 2019 by Joanna Posey. Jo recognized a need within the family law community to help educate potential clients about options other than traditional litigation to help resolve family disputes. Too often, litigants find themselves emersed in adversarial court litigation without being given the opportunity to choose a different path.
Divorce Process Options
Once you have arrived at the decision to divorce, it is time to give some thought to the available divorce process options. There are many ways to get divorced, and each option has differing levels of involvement from attorney, the court, and other professionals. Choosing the process option that is the best fit for your family can help alleviate some of the stress that comes with family restructuring.
If you think of divorce as your destination, then divorce process options are the potential methods of transportation to get you there. Depending on where you start and where you want to end up, you may need a little or a lot of help getting there.
5 Steps to Begin a Divorce
Research Process Options. Consider your goals and select a process option that will help you reach them. If you and your spouse already agree on many areas of your divorce, you may be able to resolve your case through mediation, or on your own with the help of an attorney to draft your paperwork. If your case is more complicated but you are committed to ending your marriage cooperatively, Collaborative Divorce may be a good fit. If your spouse is threatening to cut you off financially, hide assets, withhold the children, or if there are other safety concerns, you may need to pursue court litigation to protect yourself and your children.
