Dissolution refers to the process of amicably ending a marriage. Sometimes both parties can agree that the marriage is no longer working, and it is best go their separate ways. If both parties are able to come to an agreement about child custody issues and the fair division of assets and property, then they may be able to move forward with a dissolution. Taking this path instead of a more complicated divorce can greatly reduce the time, expense and stress involved with ending a marriage.

Divorce

Sometimes serious issues arise that, for one reason or another, cannot be resolved by an agreement between husband and wife. Issues such as the division of real estate, personal belongings, financial accounts and debt obligations, as well as custody or visitation of minor children can invoke a deeply emotional response and make amicable negotiations difficult, if not impossible. Utrecht & Chamberlain, LLC Attorneys at Law can make sure that your concerns are addressed and your interests protected. Through our legal experience and understanding of the law we can assure that a fair settlement is reached, or that your interests are well protected if the divorce goes to trial.
