Contested Divorce – Involves outstanding issues to be resolved concerning support, child custody and visitation, or the distribution of various marital assets and marital debts. The majority of contested divorces require court intervention.
Uncontested Divorce – There are no outstanding issues that must be resolved concerning support, child custody and visitation, or the distribution of various marital assets and marital debts.
Mediation – Mediation is a process allowing both parties the ability to make their own decisions without court intervention. This, in turn, avoids lengthy litigation proceedings. Participating in mediation may significantly reduce the costs associated with divorce proceedings. However, mediation can only be effective if both parties are willing to participate in the mediation process and reach an agreement outside of litigation.
Litigation – Should settlement through means of mediation be impossible or not appropriate in your situation, the Law Offices of Sonya A. Bouma, PLC will represent you and advocate for you through vigorous litigation in order to reach resolution.
