Protecting Your Best Interests In Divorce

When a marriage breaks down, many individuals turn to friends and family members for strength and guidance. The practical considerations and emotional demands during a divorce can seem overwhelming. While your close relationships may provide you with a shoulder to lean on, the decisions you need to make require the legal counsel of a knowledgeable divorce lawyer to protect your interests.

Goal-Oriented Advocacy To Help You To A Brighter Future

At Cate Gookins & Terry, LLC, we offer goal-oriented advocacy to resolve complex family law problems. Our approach to each case is aimed at vigorously protecting our client’s rights, while remaining focused on the best possible outcome.

Skilled Negotiators With Trial-Proven Skills For Contested Divorces

The last thing you need is additional stress as you prepare for your new post-divorce life. When you work with our compassionate attorneys, we make sure that you understand your rights and the legal options available that are best suited to your goals. We have experience with many issues that arise during the dissolution process such as business valuation, division of retirement assets, parenting time and custody, the effects of disability benefits in the final settlement, as well as determining child support and division of your household items.   As effective negotiators, we work tirelessly to obtain results efficiently. However, we will vigorously safeguard your rights in trial if necessary.

Solid Guidance To Ensure Your Uncontested Divorce Is Handled Properly

We frequently represent clients in uncontested divorces. When a divorcing couple agrees on the issues, including property division, child custody, child support and spousal maintenance, ensuring that the divorce settlement accurately reflects the intent of the parties remains a concern. We work with clients to ensure their rights are protected and that the final decree will not create unintended consequences.

The spouse of our client has the opportunity to review the paperwork and, if disputes arise, the spouse may retain their own attorney. Hiring a lawyer for an uncontested divorce can give you peace of mind that your settlement complies with the rules of court and the law.
