Does your practice focus on divorce?

We focus exclusively on divorces and other aspects of Kansas family law, including child custody, child support, spousal support and same-sex family law, so we are familiar with the applicable law and practical considerations no matter how complex your case might be.

What type of strategy will you develop for my case?

That depends on a number of circumstances, such as how reasonable or unreasonable your spouse is and what your goals are. Our attorneys work closely with clients to determine what strategies will give them the best chance to accomplish the client’s objectives. We will give you honest advice on your options so you can make important decisions with confidence.

You can meet and discuss your case with both of our attorneys, who have 30 years of combined experience. Our legal assistant also provides vital support to our clients throughout their divorce proceeding.

What is your fee structure?

Our firm requires an initial retainer fee to commence representation and bills attorney’s fees on an hourly basis after receipt of the initial retainer. Depending on the circumstances, your case may require the  need to hire investigators,  expert witnesses, or incur other costs; however, those factors are always thoroughly discussed before engaging. We itemize these costs in each bill and explain why they are necessary.

How much will my divorce cost in total?

Frankly, that is impossible to know at the outset. We will try to keep costs low by making every effort to resolve parenting, financial, and other disputed issues out of court.

What can be done keep the costs of the divorce low?

We have a whole page on that subject. Typically, the most important factor is whether the terms of a divorce can be finalized before the case goes to trial. We often achieve satisfactory settlements through mediation or direct negotiations with your spouse’s attorney. Your ability to provide necessary information and documents can also help.

We will help you prepare and protect you from any improper questions. For most or all communications, we will be the ones dealing with your spouse’s attorney on your behalf.
