If a deputy sheriff or process server has served you with divorce papers, it's time to get serious. We can help with your contested divorce.
Your spouse says the marriage is "irretrievably broken" and asks for court action: equitable distribution, alimony, child support and attorney fees. Maybe even to relocate outside the state with your children. YOU NEED TO ACT.
The summons that accompanies the petition for dissolution of marriage was issued by the clerk of court. It is an official court paper and advises you that you must file a response to the law suit within 20 days or risk a default being entered against you. DO NOT IGNORE THE SUMMONS.
If you let the 20 day deadline pass without filing something with the clerk or court, a default may be issued against you.
If you have been served with divorce papers and your marriage is irretrievably broken this is our approach:
"Did You See What The Lawyer Said in the Divorce Papers? Is she CRAZY!"
We get this all the time. After you read the divorce papers you lose your mind. "Is he nuts?" "What is she talking about?" "I can't afford alimony" You can either respond in kind and ratchet up the emotions and expense, or take a deep breath and bring things back down to earth. We choose the latter approach. It works. Take the high intensity emotions out of these cases and treat them in a businesslike manner and they go away. Usually quickly…without breaking the bank.
We handle all of our cases on a flat fee discrete task basis. That means you know exactly what each task is going to cost up front and you know exactly what we are doing for your money.
