We handle with confidence all types of divorce, from straightforward divorces involving few complications, no children and virtually no property, to more complex dissolutions that entail significant assets and contested child custody issues.

Uncontested Divorce

Although a divorce is an emotional separation, it does not have to become a battle. An uncontested divorce results in both parties having worked out all the issues relating to the divorce, such as custody, parenting time, division of assets and child support, debts, and real and/or personal property. Even in the case of uncontested divorce, there are court requirements that must be met to allow the judge to finalize your divorce. In order to protect your future interests, it is vital for your agreement to be drafted by an experienced attorney.

Contested Divorce

A divorce is considered contested when both parties cannot come to an agreement, either regarding the terms of the divorce or about getting divorced. Our goal at the Law Office of Caroline Pineres is to provide you with aggressive and determined representation while simultaneously seeking to maintain your family’s health and future. We make it a point to negotiate and settle all issues of your case through mediations and alternative dispute resolution in a timely and efficient manner. Nevertheless, we do recognize that not all cases can be settled. For this reason, we stand ready to protect your rights, your future, and your interests in the courtroom. Caroline Pineres steadfastly advocates for the optimal result in all matters on your behalf.

Separation Agreement

A separation agreement is a legal document that can be enforced in court. You and your spouse can voluntarily agree to the terms or you can let a judge make the decision for you. In addition to establishing clear terms during the separation period, the agreement can also be used as evidence during your divorce or incorporated into your final settlement. In a separation agreement:

• Property concerns can be addressed such as who will be living in the house

• Financial responsibilities can be set, including the payment of bills

• Spousal and child support obligations can be assigned

• Child custody and a visitation agreement can be defined

Life, can sometimes prove to be challenging and unpredictable and more so during the very vulnerable and stressful exposures, that one can be subjected to involving family and marital matters.
