Can I File Divorce in 2016?

Every year there are new filings as soon as the holidays are over and the new year begins. It may be a New Year's Resolution or simply a realization after spending significant time together that you are not compatible.  Another reason that filings increase after the new year is that some people get a tax refund for which to use on attorneys' fees and court costs. If you are considering filing for divorce or dissolution, first speak to an experienced divorce/family lawyer who regularly practices in the county of your residence.  An attorney can assist you with the following:

  • The law practice of a divorce attorney primarily centers on representing clients who are contemplating dissolving their marriages.
  • Depending on the type of case and its complexity, there is a wide variety of tasks that a divorce lawyer may perform such as helping to divide assets, settle spousal and child support issues, and making child custody arrangements.  Because of the high emotions and personal issues involved in divorce cases, divorce law can be a difficult and emotionally taxing area of practice.
  • So what does a divorce attorney do?  Well, the divorce lawyer job description typically involves spending the workday communicating with the client, drafting documents, consulting with other professionals, and going to court.
  • A divorce lawyer spends a great deal of time communicating with clients to obtain information about the case for motions and other paperwork that he or she has to then draft and file.
  • In addition, the attorney must discuss the results of hearings and strategize about the next steps in the case.  Because of the emotions involved in divorce cases, communications with clients are often quite protracted, requiring divorce attorneys to become adept at scheduling and managing client meetings.  Such meetings can take place in person or over the telephone.
  • Divorce attorneys are constantly drafting documents for their cases, including correspondence to clients or opposing counsel, motions such as temporary motions related to custody, child support and occupancy of the marital home.   They also are required to draft replies to motions and other paperwork filed by the opposing attorney.
