Handling Your Divorce With Genuine Concern


Divorce can be a painful process. But it can also be a time for reflection, a time to look ahead and a time to make crucial decisions about the rest of your life. At the Law Office of Jennifer C. Phillips, I provide skilled legal services to people involved in uncontested divorce and contested divorce.


Uncontested Divorce


When you are going through a divorce, having an experienced lawyer on your side can make a big difference in the outcome of your case. 

Most uncontested divorce cases do not involve court hearings or trials. The parties are amicable enough to focus on resolution. My job is to be an effective guide throughout the process and help my clients reach their goals. I explain my clients' options for the major components of the divorce decree:

  • Children
  • Custody
  • Property and debt division

In negotiating any of the areas involved in divorce, it is essential that my clients know their rights, under the law. I help clients understand the practical aspects of divorce. I explain what works and what does not. I work hard to keep my clients informed about the progress of their case.

Each family is unique. I believe that each divorce calls for customized treatment that takes into account a client's unique concerns. The best possible scenario is when I can guide my clients toward working productively with their spouse to settle disputed issues. I help my clients optimize their results in mediation and help them come up with a proposal to present to their spouse. I also am effective dealing with the client's spouse when that spouse is not represented by a lawyer.

I combine compassionate representation with personal service and versatile approaches. If the negotiations or mediation do not resolve all the issues, I provide aggressive litigation. Family law is all I do, and I am committed to helping clients resolve difficult legal situations.


Contested Divorce


When you cannot agree on a settlement plan together, it is best to consult an experienced divorce attorney who can make sure that your best interests are represented.


By being prepared and making sure my clients are prepared, I am ready to fight and help them get what they are entitled to. I am dedicated to obtaining the best possible outcomes.

Besides resolving specific issues, my clients are concerned about what will happen in court and what to expect. Court is an intimidating experience for most people. To help my clients I try to explain what to expect and how to prepare for hearings. I walk them through each step so that they are prepared and know how to deal with court hearings and trials. I explain the details in terms they can understand and tailor my approach to the clients' unique needs and concerns.
