If you have been served with Divorce papers, do not hesitate.. Call our office so that your rights can be preserved as you only have a limited amount of time to respond.
The time limit is typically 20 days from the day that you received the papers.
To be clear- "respond" does not mean go to court. Respond means that you have to WRITE and file an answer with the court within 20 days. Make sure your response covers all your legal rights concerning your divorce.
Practice Area: Family Law
At the Law Office of Vernita Charles, we regularly represent clients in a wide range of family law cases, including, but not limited to:
- Child custody
- Child support
- Spousal support
- Child support enforcement
- How to divide the marital estate if a divorce or separation occurs.
We regularly represent clients in contested divorces in court. We have the necessary skills to aggressively protect your rights in every aspect of your case. However, cases can often be resolved through careful negotiation between the parties so that an agreement can be reached without ever setting foot in court. The pace of your case depends on the parties.
BOTH people have to agree in order for there to be a settlement. If one doesn't agree, then your case is going to continue.
We work closely with each client to achieve the best result possible. We understand that a swift, meaningful resolution of any family law matter will help our clients move forward with their lives. However, there are times when the parties WILL NOT SETTLE, and the case must proceed to trial
