Avvo Legal Services provides divorce help at a fixed price. We can also help with other family issues, including reviewing a prenuptial agreement, creating a parenting plan, and more.
If you and your partner no longer want to be married and need divorce help, a lawyer can help you with an online divorce and file on your behalf. Most divorces are uncontested, and this route often saves time and money for both parties.
If you and your partner are legally separating but not divorcing, you’ll need a separation agreement. It outlines the division of assets, child custody and support, and alimony similar to a divorce—except you’re still legally married, just no longer together. This step might eventually lead to divorce but is more flexible. The benefit of creating a separation agreement is that, moving forward, there is a clear understanding between both parties about who is responsible for what. However, not every state recognizes a separation agreement as a legally binding document.
If you have children with your partner and are separating or divorcing, outline child custody and support with a parenting plan. A parenting plan includes a schedule for who the child or children will be with and at what times. It also outlines who pays child support and which parent is responsible for making major decisions, like medical and educational choices.
If you’re planning on getting married and wondering how to get a prenup, consult a lawyer to help you protect your property and assets in the event of a divorce, separation, or death.
A prenuptial agreement preemptively makes decisions about your assets before you get married. Without it, you could lose any valuable property or assets you owned before your marriage.
