Common Family Law Questions

  • How Long Will My Family Law Case Take?

    The length of a family law case depends on a number of factors and there may be no simple answer to this question. When all parties can reach agreements amicably, the process can be relatively quick. However, when agreements simply cannot be reach, litigation may be the only path forward, adding substantial time to the process.

  • Will My Case Need to Go to Court?

    While family law disputes can be intensely emotional events, when spouses are able to work together and reach agreements through mediation or arbitration, a courtroom battle may not be necessary. However, issues such as child custody, alimony, and the division of assets must be resolved before a divorce can be finalized. When partners simply cannot agree, litigation may be the only way forward. At Owenby Law, P.A., we are here to help you understand your legal options.
