Guiding Clients Through the Divorce Process for More Than 20 Years
We can help design a plan for the future that is beneficial for all parties, and one that is easy for children to transition into.
Our Bartow, FL, divorce attorney can help you peacefully and civilly navigate through the confusing and emotionally overwhelming process of divorce. If there are children involved, child custody and visitation will need to be determined. Assets and other equities will also need to be reallocated. Together, we can devise a plan that supports the best interests of your family members and children.
Settling a Divorce
We believe in the settlement approach to divorce cases. We urge our clients to come to a reasonable agreement with their spouses concerning their affairs, rather than contesting their divorce in court. If the case goes to court, then the judge will ultimately define the post-marriage relationship, minimizing your control over matters affecting your family.
At Saunders Law Group we work with our clients to make sure that, first and foremost, the case is:
- Fair and balanced for all parties
- Well-organized from a legal standpoint
- Ready to go to trial if absolutely necessary
Spouses are often emotionally distraught and confused at the initial time of divorce, and are not in any shape to begin making decisions. Our attorneys are highly skilled at viewing divorces compassionately and objectively, so they can help you make informed and educated decisions that can benefit your life and well-being.
“It is our goal to help you in your time of difficulty by making sure your case is well-organized and balanced. We also want to make sure that the settlement is mediated fairly and competently for all parties, and that the case is ready to go to trial if it is contested.”
“If the case has to go to trial and all attempts at settlement have failed, our divorce attorneys are ready to help.”
In order to make sure you feel comfortable throughout the divorce process, we can explain the details of each stage so you know what to expect. Generally speaking, the process begins with a thorough discussion of your goals and a review of your situation. Your attorney can then file a petition with the court and serve your spouse with the petition. After your spouse responds, we can discuss issues regarding division of property and child support. It is our hope to settle divorce through these meetings without having to go to court. If we do reach a settlement, we can present the agreement to a judge, who can provide a divorce decree if no modifications are needed.
