FAQ for the Gainesville Office
Does Stearns-Montgomery & Proctor Offer Divorce Mediation in Gainesville?
Yes, you can get divorce mediation from Stearns‑Montgomery & Proctor in Gainesville. Mediation is one of the most common ways for spouses to work out concerns and considerations for an upcoming divorce. While some divorces have to go to court to be resolved, there are many others that can be handled through mediation proceedings, where agreements can be made and issues can be worked out successfully.
How Long Does the Divorce Process in Gainesville Take?
If you have an uncontested divorce in Gainesville, you can expect the process to take around 45 to 60 days. That's because of the waiting period before the court will sign off on the divorce decree. But if your divorce is contested, it could take a year or even longer for it to be final. These types of divorces often go to court, and a judge has to decide how to divide property and address custody issues. With that in mind, working through problems before filing, if possible, can reduce the length of time your divorce takes.
What Should I Bring to My First Meeting With My Attorney?
When you come to your first meeting with an attorney at Stearns‑Montgomery & Proctor, make sure to bring identification, and the information for your spouse, as well. The more information you can provide early on in the process, the more easily your family law attorney will be able to start on the paperwork needed for your divorce petition. Having a Gainesville divorce attorney on your side is a great way to have peace of mind, and providing personal and financial information at the first meeting can help your case move forward faster.
