Divorce

Written by Amy Smith. Posted in Domestic Violence and Law

It is not advisable to file for divorce without
an attorney, especially if you have children or
any assets to be divided. When the parties are in
agreement with the divorce as well as all the terms,
dissolution of marriage can be filed. Both parties must
attend the hearing. Sometimes, when you file for
a divorce, the abuser will not come to the hearing.
The court will grant an uncontested divorce. Often,
abusers want to control the situation so they are likely
to obtain attorneys to protect their legal interests or
counter the divorce.
