Legal Representation

Where each party is represented by a separate attorney and the attorney is allowed to use the court system when necessary. Appropriate when there is distrust of the other spouse, when there is a likelihood of disagreements that cannot be resolved without a judge, and when temporary or emergency court orders may be needed.

Each of these methods has advantages and disadvantages and each may be appropriate for certain specific situations. While selecting the right process can make things easier, selecting the wrong process can make a difficult situation much worse.
