Divorce is a Process — Find the One that is Right for You

Divorce cases are first and foremost about the lives, relationships, and futures of the people involved. Because divorce creates significant disruption resulting in permanent changes there are many questions you might have at the outset, such as:

  • How will we split up our property?
  • Will I be able to support myself?
  • How do I protect my relationship with my children?
  • Where will I live?
  • Where will my children live?
  • How do I prevent my spouse or domestic partner from moving our assets?

At McKinley Irvin, we believe in finding the divorce process that is best suited to our clients and their unique situations. That process could involve dispute resolution processes like negotiation, traditional litigation, mediation, arbitration, collaborative law, or a hybrid of these different methods.

Our goal is to help you understand your options and to help you choose the strategy that will work best for you and your case.
