How Long Does Divorce Take?

Depending on where you are and the circumstances of your divorce, the length of time until your divorce is finalized will vary. Speak to an attorney about your case to determine a more specific timeline.

How Much Does A Lawyer Cost?

Fees for a lawyer will be determined by who you hire and how lengthy or complicated your case is. Our lawyers can help evaluate your case to give you a better estimate of how much your proceedings and legal needs may cost.

What Happens To My Agreements If I Move Out Of State?

With Kansas City straddling both Missouri and Kansas, this is a very important question for many people who call us.

Many agreements like business agreements, child support agreements, and alimony or spousal support agreements are stable unless you opt to change them. If you move and an agreement, like child custody, no longer fits your schedule or circumstances, you may be able to change it. Call our office to find out more.

Should I Change My Will If I Get Divorced?

This is a decision that is entirely up to you. If you had a will that divided shared assets from your marriage, it is likely that updating your will is necessary. A full evaluation of your assets and property may be applicable. If children are involved, you may have additional considerations or prior arrangements that need to change. Our attorneys can help you decide if updating your will is right for you.
