Two Types of Divorce

Lormand Law Firm Divorce Help

The Lormand Law Firm can help you in your divorce by:

  • providing you with legal counseling and guidance for all the issues involved in the divorce process;
  • reviewing the facts of your case so as to render a sound legal opinion regarding your rights and obligations;
  • giving you an honest opinion about your legal position and the comparative value of litigating your case;
  • filing required legal documents on a timely basis with the courts;
    providing aggressive advocacy when required;
  • persistently moving the process forward to final resolution.

There are at least two different types of divorce:

  1. ugly, and
  2. not so ugly.

We recommend the second variety, which is usually accomplished with the willing cooperation of both parties who have each decided to end the marriage and take the steps necessary to accomplish a divorce.

For “ugly” divorces, the Lormand Law Firm recommends an objective approach. This may be quite difficult to accomplish at first because the couple may be embroiled in a highly charged emotional environment. In these situations, attorneys are often sought after as “hired guns” to “destroy” the other party. This approach is immature, ineffective, and very, very expensive.

How Long Will the Divorce Take?

The Lormand Law Firm has helped clients get divorced in as short a time as 22 days (our record); but a no-fault divorce, with both parties cooperating, generally can take anywhere from four to eight weeks from the date of hiring the law firm.
