Charleston Divorce Attorneys
Helping Families In West Virginia Move Forward
Although it is difficult to separate from your significant other, some
issues can’t always be resolved and it might be necessary for you
to get divorced. While divorcing can help you get closure and will allow
you to take the next step in your life, there is a lot that will be on
the line. From dividing your home to separating other valuable assets,
getting divorced can leave you vulnerable to many different unforeseen
At Lord Hoosier, PLLC, our attorneys are committed to helping families
transition during their divorce. We have years of experience guiding our
clients through their divorce in the most amicable way possible. Many
people assume that all divorces are contentious and that every spouse
makes it difficult for the other. Our lawyers are familiar with what divorce
cases are actually like, and we know there are many different types of
divorces that can be used to separate from your spouse without having
to go to court.
We take on the flowing kinds of divorce cases:
No-Fault Divorce: This form of divorce recognizes that both spouses contributed to the breakdown
of the marriage. No fault divorces are suitable for couples who don’t
expect that they will have to fight about how to divide their assets.
Uncontested Divorce: In this type of divorce, the two spouses work together to resolve the
terms of their divorce settlement. Uncontested divorces are usually settled
fairly quickly, and often don’t require hearings, settlement negotiations,
or other types of court procedures.
Contested Divorce: This kind of divorce is the typical heated and combative separation that
you often see on TV. Contested divorce usually involves the two spouses
hiring separate attorneys to take their settlement disputes to court for
a judge to make a ruling.
Mediation: A neutral third party hears both spouses’ reasons for wanting to
separate. However, the mediator does not make a decision for the couple,
and instead facilitates a discussion between them that will hopefully
help them reach an agreement that will guide the final divorce judgment.
Collaborative Divorce: Each spouse retains legal counsel and signs an agreement stating they
will work together to come to a divorce agreement. If the spouses can’t
agree, both of their attorneys will withdraw from the case, and the spouses
will have to start the divorce process all over.
Summary Divorce: This type of divorce is a good option for couples who lack substantial
assets, don’t have any children, and weren’t married for very
long. Summary divorces simply require each spouse to fill out and file
a few forms.
