Dissolution / Paternity

Dissolution matters usually involve the dissolving of a marriage (a/k/a divorce) with the entry of a Final Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage or a judicial determination of the issues and claims as a result of a nonjury trial before a judge. Through a process of “discovery” exchanged by both sides, either the parties with assistance of counsel through various methods of alternative dispute resolution or the court after trial, will determine the distribution of marital property/assets and debt/liabilities, along with issues of attorney’s fees, alimony, child support, custody/timesharing, parenting plans, if applicable.

Paternity actions involve the determination of paternity for a minor child or children along with matters of custody/timesharing, parental responsibility, child support and attorney’s fees.  Depending upon the factual circumstances, such actions may involve DNA testing.

In high conflict or complex matters of dissolution or paternity, cases may involve the use of a guardian ad litem, a parenting coordinator, a forensic accountant, a vocational evaluator, an appraiser, and/or the like to deal with disputes relating to property distribution, custody, alimony, and child support.  All of these professionals work with the parties, counsel, and the court to attempt to bring the parties to the best resolution for all involved.
