A divorce goes beyond a change in your marital status. It can cause overwhelming impacts on the legal status and financial situations of everyone involved. When divorce is on the horizon, Mark Marsh encourages clients to spend time considering asset management. Each spouse has legal, fundamental rights to property and wealth. Although divorce is a personal decision, it creates a complex, legal set of claims that must be agreed upon by both parties.
The area of divorce law included contested and uncontested divorces, spousal support agreements and child support and custody arrangements. It also includes pre and post nuptial agreements.
Contested divorces occur when the separating spouses cannot arrive at an agreement on one or more key issues in order to conclusively terminate their marriage. In this case, the divorce proceedings require court appearances, can take a considerable amount of time (nine to 13 months) and can cost tens of thousands of dollars. An un-contested divorce, on the other hand, is often referred to as a “quick divorce” due to the fact that the separating spouses agree on all issues to end the marriage. These divorces require a fraction of the amount of legal involvement resulting in substantial time and money savings. An uncontested divorce can be final as soon as an agreement is reached by both parties and is signed by a judge.
Due to the emotionally involved aspects of divorce, the vast majority of Mark Marsh’s clients head into a divorce contested. However, whenever possible, Mark Marsh encourages his clients to work towards an uncontested divorce. Not only will this help save valuable time and money, but uncontested divorces are easier on all parties involved. Mark is proud to share that the vast majority of his divorce cases finalize as uncontested. This is largely due to his solid reputation in the legal community, his integrity and his ability to negotiate effectively with other attorneys.
