In Montana, divorce proceedings begin by filing a petition for dissolution. Although commonly known as divorce, the process of ending a marriage is legally known as dissolution (but really they mean the same thing). And from there, each case goes a different way - because the truth is that divorces are as unique as families. If you have children, it will be necessary to create a parenting plan before your divorce can be finalized. With or without children, you will need to divide your assets and debts with your spouse. If the two of you can agree to a plan for those questions, the case can be settled without a trial. Sometimes, it takes a judge to determine how your family will look after the divorce.
A divorce involving minor children will require a parenting plan be created. But, as we all know, it is not only married couples who have children. Often unmarried parents who later break-up find themselves fighting over custody of the children. And just like a married couple, they often wind up in court about it. We represent married and unmarried people who want what is best for their children.
