In a dissolution, both parties consent to settle all disputes outside of a court room. All of the issues that need to  be resolved must be resolved prior to filing a petition with the court. Furthermore, unlike a divorce, in a dissolution, there is no subpoena available. For this reason, all information must be volunteered willingly by each party to resolve the matters at hand. A dissolution can often save parties a significant amount of time and money.

Divorces or dissolution can put a lot of stress and pressure on families. While the financial outcomes of a divorce or dissolution are certainly very important, there is nothing more important than health and safety of the children involved. Custody needs to be determined by looking for the best interest of each child involved in the case. In many cases evidence is misunderstood by the court and parents or loved ones are left without the legal right to be with their children. Our offices have been successfully representing parents and loved ones in these situations since 1984 and we passionately believe that the best interest of a child can only be achieved with the help of an experienced lawyer that will be on your side twenty four hours of the day, seven days a week.
