AMICABLE DIVORCE

Most people want to finalize their divorce as quickly and painlessly as possible. At the Ross-Jones Law Office, Elizabeth will listen to you and defend your interests while working collaboratively to try and reach a settlement with the other side. Elizabeth will work tirelessly on your behalf to resolve your matter as expeditiously as possible.  She will not create unnecessary conflict in your case.

UNCONTESTED DIVORCE

An uncontested divorce is the fastest, most simple, and inexpensive way to handle a divorce.  In the situation where the parties have already agreed on all matters in their divorce, Elizabeth can help by drafting the necessary legal documents and ensuring that the proper legal procedure is followed to finalize the process.  Issues to address will include division of marital assets, debts, legal and physical custody of children, and the non-custodial parent’s visitation with his or her children.

CONTESTED DIVORCE

Unfortunately, there are certain cases that no amount of compromise will settle. Sometimes a temporary court order is necessary initially to determine who will live in the family home, how expenses and debts will be paid, and how the custody, support of and visitation with the children will be handled. Other cases are very contentious throughout the entire process.
