Dissolution
In a dissolution, the parties have agreed upon each and every issue prior to the filing of any action with the court. These issues include but are not limited to the division of marital assets, custody, parenting time, child support and spousal support. A dissolution is economical and can be completed within 60 days of the filing of the initial petition. Read More
