Divorce Overview

Considering divorce can be an overwhelming decision. Is this right for my family? How will it impact my children? Is it financially feasible? At Katherine Johnson Law, we can help guide you to the decision that is right for you. Our firm has been through countless divorces and has the answers you need. We urge you to come in for a consultation to get the knowledge you need to make the right choice.

Consultation

During your consultation, Katherine Johnson will listen carefully to the circumstances that brought you to her office, and ask questions to ensure that she has a complete picture. You are not required to bring anything to your consultation, but it can be helpful to bring any documents that you have been served with, to have a general idea of your family income and assets, and most importantly a list of questions for her to answer.

She will explain the law that applies to your case and how it affects you, in terms that you can understand. In addition, Katherine will outline the steps of the divorce process in detail so that you know exactly what to expect should you choose to move forward. She will also let you know how she would tailor those steps to your specific case to ensure the best approach for you. Our firm believes that every case deserves individual attention and a custom approach, rather than a cookie cutter process.

Sometimes the worst part of any situation is not knowing – not knowing your rights, not knowing your options, and not knowing what steps you need to take to protect yourself. Katherine Johnson will guide you through each of these concerns in your consultation.

You will leave with a clear understanding of your rights during your divorce and what steps to take to protect yourself in the interim. From whether you’re entitled to spousal support, to how to handle a marital residence that is in both your names, to what factors affect the custody of your children – you will get a clear picture of where you stand and what you should realistically expect as an outcome. Some attorneys will tell you what you want to hear only to blindside you during the case, or lead you down an unnecessarily expensive path to benefit their bottom line.

Our Difference

At this Firm, we believe that Clients deserve to know the truth about what they are facing so that they can make smart, informed decisions. Katherine Johnson also believes you need to understand that cost of your choices – both the financial and the emotional cost.

Katherine Johnson Law LLC provides a variety of options for representation.

Your Choices

For many divorces, each party needs to hire a full service attorney. This means that Katherine Johnson will take all the steps to guide you through your divorce, including representing you in Court, preparing all the necessary paperwork, assisting you in making decisions, and negotiating all settlement terms.

 

What if you and your Spouse have discussed the situation, and would like to work together in an amicable way? We can also be hired in a more limited capacity at a lower or even potentially set cost. One of the most important things in a divorce is the paperwork. It can be complicated, and it is critical that it is done properly. Once a Judgment for Dissolution of Marriage is entered, there are some provisions that can never be changed, and some provisions that can be changed, but at great financial cost. Make sure you are protected by hiring an attorney to draft all your paperwork for you. Katherine Johnson Law LLC can draft all the necessary documents, work with you to review and revise them, and provide you with detailed instructions for all the steps you need to take from filing your case to finalizing it in front of a Judge.

Uncontested Divorce

If you and your Spouse would like to work together amicably, but you have no idea where to start, we can help. Katherine Johnson can walk you through all the decisions that you need to make, including providing you with advice on all of your particular legal issues and a range of outcomes for each one.

Along these lines, you may be in a situation where your Spouse has engaged an Attorney to draft paperwork, and has provided you with the documents for your review and signature. Should you sign them? Not without receiving advice! For a limited and set cost, Katherine Johnson can review these documents with you and provide counsel including what each provision means, whether it complies with the law, and whether it represents a reasonable outcome for you.

Katherine Johnson Law LLC can tailor their representation to your needs and financial situation. We are more than happy to discuss your personal situation in a divorce consultation.

A Fresh Start

You know what lies ahead should you choose to stay in your marriage, but you may not know what lies ahead if you make a different choice. At Katherine Johnson Law, we will illuminate the path so that you can make an informed decision regarding your divorce. We urge you to write down your questions and concerns, and make an appointment for a divorce consultation with Katherine Johnson Law.
