Divorce Lawyers in St. Charles County and Surrounding Areas
Protect your rights and your children by using an experienced divorce attorney.
Divorce is one of the most difficult events that can occur to any family. We can help you through the process.
The stress and anxiety of divorce can be overwhelming. At the same time, you are required to make some of the most important decisions of your life affecting your children, your assets, and your income. The help of a lawyer is critical in advising you of your legal rights and responsibilities during this difficult time.
Experience and knowledge of the law and the courts are vital.
The divorce process begins with a FREE consultation to assess the issues unique to your individual case and to discuss the procedure and costs associated with the dissolving of the marriage.
Once the client has decided that dissolution is necessary, then our team can guide you through the legal process. The goal for all cases is to reach a settlement and avoid a costly and difficult trial. However, if settlement is not possible, we will vigorously pursue the client’s goals at trial.
Divorce takes a great emotional, mental, and physical toll on the parties and their children. The sooner the parties can develop a line of communication, especially when it comes to child custody and visitation, the smaller the impact on the family. Settlement not only helps each party to achieve a mutual resolution, it also helps to establish new lines of communication and boundaries.
Not all cases can be settled, however, and will require extensive discovery, trial preparation, and ultimately a trial. Our lawyers are very familiar with the courtroom and have significant trial experience.
Quite simply, divorces are a great financial drain. Between attorney fees, court costs, litigation expenses, and the client’s loss of time, the cost can be significant. For most parties, it is beneficial to achieve a settlement early in the process before these costs begin to mount. We help you:
