Divorce, referred to as “dissolution of marriage” by the Courts, goes beyond terminating the marriage. Your Family Law Judge will divide your personal property, allocate debts, determine who keeps the marital home and your visitation (now known as “Parenting Time”) with your children. Regardless of which law firm you choose, one needs an experienced attorney to navigate this legal process.
