Family Disputes Can Be Difficult To Solve On Your Own

When your spouse files for divorce and you have been served, it can feel like a freight train coming at you. Now what happens? Divorce is an emotional time, even if you are living separately from your spouse. It is often difficult to control your emotions and confusion when you are looking at a stack of papers you do not understand.

You have a limited time to file an answer to the divorce or lose the right to do so. If you do nothing, the court will default in your spouse's favor. You could be agreeing to a child custody arrangement, property division or the purchase of a life insurance policy that is not in your best interests. To avoid loss of your property or rights to see your children, it is best to contact an experienced family law attorney as soon as possible after being served divorce documents.

At Barry C. Hodge, Attorney at Law, I provide seasoned counsel and legal representation for those faced with divorce. I provide clear answers to your questions and a complete outline of the process to help protect your rights. My approach is to help you know the entire process and your legal options.
