All The Difference
Chesapeake Divorce Attorney
The decision to end your marriage is a difficult one. It comes with much emotional distress. You must essentially start your life anew, and that is a hard challenge to face. Moreover, it also comes with legal concerns which can make the emotional trials even worse.
At The Law Offices of Daniel J. Miller, our team takes a compassionate approach to our clients. We know the struggle you are facing, and we want to help ease that burden. Our firm can take the legal woes off your hands. With years of experience, we know how to work toward outcomes that are beneficial and fair for everyone.
If you are facing a divorce in Chesapeake, allow our lawyers to help. You can set up a free consultation with us online.
You must handle a contested divorce in court. Essentially, to “contest” something is to challenge it. If either party does not agree to the divorce, or if they believe the other party is making unfair claims or demands, then they can contest the dissolution.
Divorce court is like any other trial. It requires making claims and proving them. Alternatively, you must also answer any claims made against you. This requires gathering evidence and building your case. You can bring in documents, communications, and witnesses to help. Let our team do this work for you. Chances are, you have enough on your mind already. You can trust us to build a case for you and help you argue your claims in court.
When both parties agree to a divorce, there is no need to take the matter to court. It is not necessary to make any overt claims, either. You can simply state your desire to end the marriage and go from there.
Technically, you can make any decisions you want amongst yourselves. This, however, is not recommended. It’s simply too easy to miss something important. You can also come to an agreement that makes sense but mistakenly write it in a way that is not legally sound.
Our firm can help you with a collaborative divorce. In this process, everyone works together to reach the best solutions. Each spouse hires an attorney, but these lawyers are not in competition. They are working together toward your benefit. One attorney can even recommend another if necessary.
Collaborative divorce also allows you to bring in outside experts. For instance, you can include financial experts and child psychologists, helping ensure everyone receives the support they need.
When your family has wealth, property is often complicated. Many of your assets, for instance, could be tied into stocks or digital investments. It can be difficult to decipher the ownership of such property.
Our team is ready to do the hard work of helping you untangle your assets in a divorce. We want to make sure that everyone is treated fairly, getting what they need and deserve after the marriage ends.
Sometimes, military benefits go to both the veteran and their spouse. For instance, military retirement is considered a marital asset. You could potentially share portions of it long after the marriage ends. Allow our firm to help you evaluate ownership and entitlement of your military benefits.
Child custody can often be a struggle in a military divorce as well. The military parent may be called away for long stretches, making it difficult to create a reasonable parenting plan.
Our team can help you create a plan that accounts for active duty. We can build in stipulations for what should happen when you are home and when you are away. Our lawyers understand the need to have quality time with your kids, and we can navigate the obstacles that your work creates.
We are also here to help with:
- Paternity and Fathers’ Rights
- Domestic Violence
- Spousal Support
- Child Support
- Child Custody
- And more!
