Focused Divorce Attorney Representing Claremore Family Law Clients
It is a simple fact of life that not all marriages will last forever, even if both spouses had the best intentions going in. It is also a known fact that not all couples, marriages, and divorces look the same. Fortunately, divorce laws have caught up with the times and it is relatively easy to obtain one. That said, divorce is rarely an easy process emotionally and there are many difficult topics and terms that you and your soon-to-be-ex spouse must agree upon. If you are facing divorce, Matthew R. Tarvin, P.C. is here to provide the support and counsel you need to get through to the other side.
Contested vs. Uncontested Divorce
There are two types of divorce; contested and uncontested. An uncontested divorce is one in which both spouses agree to the divorce and the necessary terms, including the division of assets and debt, child custody and support, spousal support, and more. These divorces can be handled through mediation if you so choose. Conversely, a contested divorce is one in which the couple cannot agree on these things and need court intervention to complete the process. We represent clients in both kinds of divorce cases.
Protecting Your Goals & Assets
Whether you and your spouse are on good terms is not entirely important to the overall outcome of the case. What does matter, however, is that you communicate your goals and desires for the terms of your divorce to your attorney. This information heavily influences the tactics we will take in moving your case forward. Things to think about include the division of assets, custody, and support. For example, do you want sole custody of your kids or are you willing to share it with your ex? Are you willing to divide the assets evenly, or are you hoping to hold onto something you brought into the marriage? Knowing the answers to these questions at the start will make the process much smoother and straightforward.
