Common Questions

Can a prenup protect children from a prior marriage?
Yes, a prenuptial agreement can help assure that children from a prior marriage will be financially provided for as intended by their parent.
Do prenup agreements cover alimony?
In many states, your agreement can include provisions to establish, limit or eliminate alimony in the event of a divorce.
What’s the difference between a contested and uncontested divorce?
An uncontested divorce is when you and your spouse want to get a divorce and you agree on all significant issues, including the division of property and debts, spousal and child support and child custody. A contested divorce is when you and your spouse can’t resolve disagreements regarding these types of issues.
How do I divorce a spouse I can’t find?
If you can’t find your spouse despite your best efforts, you can still get a divorce. You'll need court approval to publish notice of your intent to divorce your spouse in the local newspaper. If your spouse doesn't respond to your service by publication, you can proceed to finalizing your divorce by default.
Do I need to complete a lot of divorce forms?
Yes, in most states there are many forms to complete. If your divorce is uncontested, we'll complete all state-specific documents for both spouses.
