Choosing the appropriate process for your Valdosta, GA divorce

No two divorces are the same. For more than 14 years, attorney Richard A. Wilkes has been working with individuals that are looking for divorce settlement. Some parties retain enough trust to work cooperatively to dissolve the marriage, while othes have experienced too much betrayal that every issue is adversarial. Attorney Richard A. Wilkes counsels clients regarding the methods available:

  • Uncontested divorce - The parties agree on the terms of the marital settlement and present them to the court for approval. The process may involve traditional negotiation or a collaborative divorce process such as mediation. Uncontested divorces are often less expensive and may allow the parties to arrive at compromises that are easier to accept than a court order.
  • Contested divorce - When parties cannot agree on all the ancillary issues, they appear before a judge, who issues a ruling. Contested divorce is often necessary when highly emotional issues such as child custody or complex financial issues in high net worth divorces are involved.
