The Difference Between Dissolution And Divorce
There are two main processes for ending a divorce. Which option you choose depends on the relationship and understanding you and your spouse have with one another.
- Dissolution: This is a process in which both you and your spouse file a joint Petition For Dissolution after completing a written agreement that discloses a resolution on how all issues will be handled. This agreement includes matters involving assets and debts, tax matters, support-related concerns and critical issues pertaining to your parental rights.
- Divorce: This is a process in which one of you files a lawsuit against the other. Filing for divorce typically leads to contested litigation in which matters are argued and determined in court. This is usually a costly process and can be lengthy.
No matter which procedure you follow, lawyer Showen will be by your side and advise you from start to finish. He will fight for your needs.
