Considering Divorce as a New Year’s Resolution?

A family law attorney at Juris Law & Mediation can help you make a clean break heading into the new year. The start of a new year is a great time to make positive changes to your life. If these changes include leaving a relationship, Juris Law can help you. 
New Year, New You
Ending a marriage is emotionally draining and difficult, no matter what the circumstances are. It’s important to hire an experienced family law attorney as early as possible in the process. This is the best way to make sure you have someone looking out for your best interests from the beginning.
Even if you’re not sure whether divorce is the right decision for you, a consultation with a family law attorney can be very helpful to educate you about the process, what to expect, and what you need to consider. Depending on the situation, sometimes couples can work together to settle the outstanding matters in their divorce without having to go to court.  If you are amicable, you should definitely consider alternative dispute resolution processes like mediation, through the Juris Dispute Resolution Center. For other couples, settlement outside of court isn’t a realistic possibility, and the court process is the only way forward. 
Court Process
The court process differs slightly in every jurisdiction, and the job of a divorce attorney in Kansas City or Johnson County is to know what is needed, and how to achieve the best possible outcome for you.  For example, you must live in your state for a certain number of days before filing; this residency requirement is 90 days in Missouri and 60 days in Kansas.  Scheduling a consultation with a family law attorney at Juris Law & Mediation gives us the opportunity to discuss your case and the details you need to keep in mind today.
