Divorce and Separation

Divorce proceedings usually involve intense emotions and significant expense. Before filing for separation or divorce, you and your partner should be certain that your marriage is beyond repair. Initiating a divorce suit can be stressful and expensive. We recommend seeking legal advice during this decision-making process. Our experienced divorce lawyer will give you insight on the legal processes involved in divorce, and can help you decide whether it is the best option. If a divorce is deemed necessary, you must understand the process that is ahead of you.

In some cases, parties are able to resolve divorce suits and other family-related legal matters by participating in an informal settlement or mediation. During this process, both you and your spouse will meet with a neutral mediator to help resolve issues by assisting both parties to compromise and reach an agreement. We encourage you to consider these options to avoid the stress and expense which accompanies litigation/trials. Many clients prefer this method as it tends to be faster, less costly and produces a more amicable outcome. In other cases however, marital discord, hardships and varied positions make settlement unrealistic, and the facts must be heard by a court.  When this occurs Mason Legal Services, LLC is ready to fight for you, and Cynthia Mason will fiercely advocate for her clients at trial.

During the divorce proceedings, we will work closely with you to ensure proper financial support is sought through temporary support and/or alimony. If children are involved, we will work with you to seek custody of your children, child support, or help in the development of a parenting plan, if preferred.

The experienced staff at Mason Legal Services, LLC will work with you throughout your separation and divorce to minimize the emotional strain and cost normally associated with these proceedings.  Contact us today.
