Trusted St. Louis Divorce Attorney
Divorce is not a simple task. Marriage is essentially a contract. As such,
the parties must provide proof to the court that their marriage is irretrievably
broken and beyond repair in order to be granted a divorce.
When a marriage dissolves, both parties must resolve numerous legal issues,
including distribution of assets and debt and
child custody and
support. All these legalities can be exceedingly challenging, especially when
you are experiencing one of life's greatest emotional events.

Divorce Representation in Missouri
Missouri state law allows couples to choose the divorce method that best
serves the unique nature of their situation. As a firm solely focused
on family law, Pedano, O'Shea, McGavic & Hogenmiller, LLC possesses
an in-depth understanding of all types of divorces.
Our skilled divorce attorneys are equipped to assist you with any type
of divorce proceedings.
A growing trend in family law, mediated divorces rely on a neutral third-party
attorney to help a couple come to agreements on any or all issues surrounding
their divorce. Each party is allowed to be represented by separate counsel.
Many people believe once they have mediated and resolved the issues, the
case is over.
However, an attorney will need to file both the initiation and settlement
paperwork. It is not uncommon for couples to only agree on some issues,
leaving the rest to be resolved through litigation. Our insightful team
of lawyers can clarify your rights and obligations prior to going into
mediation and advise you on the ramifications of settlement terms throughout
About 1 in 4 divorces end up in contested litigation. As experienced trial
attorneys, we are fully prepared to help you navigate the lengthy court
process. We act with professionalism during the negotiation process in
order to provide you with insight on how to proceed with your case.
We take pride in the preparation work we undergo to get your case ready
for trial. This involves in-depth discovery in order to identify key evidence
and witnesses, depositions, testimony, and exhibit preparation. Most importantly,
we stay involved with our clients so they not only understand the proceedings,
but feel prepared at every court hearing.
When both spouses reach an agreement regarding all related elements in
the divorce, they can proceed with an uncontested divorce. However, even
amicable divorces are still governed by family court legalities. The necessary
paperwork needs to be drafted properly to include all of the necessary
statutory elements, filed with the court, and eventually signed by the
judge. Hiring an attorney for this task can not only expedite this process,
but also ensure that the paperwork filing is proper and takes into consideration
all legal aspects of the agreement. Both parties should be represented
by separate counsel to prevent a conflict of interest.
