If you have been served divorce papers, certain deadlines and procedural steps will need to be followed. At this point, both sides are under a statutory injunction to prevent either party from taking detrimental actions against the other, the children, or the marital estate. The served party has 21 days from the date of service to file their Response to Petition for Dissolution of Marriage. It will be during or even before this time that you’ll want to speak with a qualified, experienced Adams County divorce attorney. They will be able to advise you if you have questions on what behaviors you are allowed to engage in and what to do if your spouse could be violating the injunction. At this stage, you will begin to work with your attorney to build your plan for moving forward in your case.
The to-do list during divorce proceedings can be long and feel very daunting. A complete accounting of all financials needs to be submitted to the other party. These financial disclosures are usually required to be exchanged by your initial conference date, within 40 days of the case being filed initially. Experts may need to be eventually called in to help determine the value of certain assets, real estate or businesses, for example. If you have children, professional evaluators may be needed to assess any child custody issues. Again, working with an experienced divorce attorney in Adams County will make this process smoother and less confusing. Having the right family law attorney can have a significant impact on your case.
