Dissolution: An Alternative to the Divorce Process
Both divorce and dissolution will legally end your marriage. The dissolution process gives you more control over the outcome, more privacy and more flexibility to fashion results that fit your family.
What Is Dissolution of Marriage?
In a dissolution, you and your spouse must agree on all issues involved in ending your marriage. With the help of your attorneys, you will decide how to divide your property and how to manage child custody and child support and spousal support issues.
At Brinkman & Associates, our family law attorneys realize that working through these issues can be extremely challenging. It can be difficult to sit across the table from a person you would rather not deal with. We work to build consensus while protecting your interests.
Advantages of Dissolution
Maintaining control of the outcome is the primary advantage of a dissolution. It can also be less costly than divorce. Dissolution, especially when employing the collaborative law process, helps preserve the family's privacy and is generally a more thorough, healthy and interest-based approach. Dissolution also allows you to control the timing of events. You can get it done in a week or drag it out over several years, if you prefer. In a divorce, the court is in charge of the calendar as well as the decisions.
