Divorce

A divorce does not have to be all about endings. For many, it is an opportunity to begin a new chapter of their lives. At Hoelscher Gebbia Cepeda, PLLC, we understand that going through the divorce process is difficult, but we strive to make it as easy as possible while ensuring that you, your assets and your children are protected at every step.

Simple, Complex, Military And High-Asset Divorce

The divorce process is different for each person who goes through it. For some families, a divorce is a simple, amicable decision; for others, it is a highly bitter and contentious undertaking. Regardless of what led to your separation, you now confront difficult decisions regarding your home, finances, children and other critical elements of your life. As your lawyers, we will provide counsel and representation so you can confidently address the following issues:

Uncontested Divorce

We offer a simplified process for uncontested divorces, with or without children. Uncontested divorces can use quicker, easier procedures for paperwork, court and billing. Hoelscher Gebbia Cepeda, PLLC, offers fixed price menus for agreed divorces based on whether there are children and what assets, such as retirement accounts, need to be divided. Contact us for a free consultation.

Contested Divorce

Sometimes, ending a marriage is a more complicated process. Our lawyers can help with every stage and every issue that might arise. For example, lawyers at HGC PLLC have been on the cutting edge of issues involving paternity and parentage for non-biological parents who raised children that were not genetically theirs. We have successfully litigated same-sex divorces and child custody involving sperm donors and assisted reproduction through artificial insemination. Whether your family is more traditional or covered by cutting edge legal issues, Hoelscher Gebbia Cepeda, PLLC, can assist with every need, including:

  • Spousal support (alimony)
  • Child support and child custody
  • Property division, including high-asset or complex estates
  • Divorces for military personnel, including division of military retirement
  • Same-sex divorce
  • Numerous other divorce and family law issues
  • Divorce involving common law marriage or informal marriage
  • Temporary Orders
  • Domestic violence issues and protective orders
  • Adoptions of stepchildren, grandchildren or other family members
  • Divorces involving businesses, inheritances, large assets or  complex property arrangements

When you work with us at Hoelscher Gebbia Cepeda, PLLC, you are never alone as you go through your divorce. Whether your separation or dispute is a simple matter or requires extensive investigation and discovery of complex assets, we have the skill, experience and resources to negotiate a creative solution or take your case before the court and advocate for your interests.

High Value Asset/Complex Divorce

Divorces involving complex or high value estates require particular attention and expertise. High Asset Divorces often involve assets that are unfamiliar to many divorce attorneys. High net worth parties often live lifestyles that reflect the unique nature of their financial position. At HoelscherGebbia Cepeda PLLC, we strive to utilize the best experts available to value assets, advise on spousal maintenance, and de-escalate conflict involving child custody while establishing fair child support. Our lawyers understand the unique challenges that may be involved in a complex divorce.

Discretion And Aggression In Balance

Every divorce is unique because every family is unique. Regardless of what led to your separation, you now have to confront difficult decisions regarding your home, finances, children and other critical elements of your life. Your lawyers should respect your needs and be sensitive to personal nature of the information that is often disclosed during divorce proceedings. On the other hand, your lawyer must be certain to inform you of all your options, so you can decide how to strike a balance between your unique priorities. Our attorneys will help balance your priorities by negotiating for an agreed order or Mediated Settlement Agreement while preparing your case for trial, if needed.

As your lawyers, we will provide counsel and representation so you can confidently address the following issues:

  • Spousal support (alimony)
  • Child support
  • Child custody
  • Classification (marital or non-marital) of assets
  • Valuation of assets, including fine art, jewelry, real estate and companion animals or livestock
  • Property division, including stocks, retirement accounts, annuities, etc.
  • Business valuations and business sales or buy outs
  • Confidentiality or Non-Disclosure Agreements
  • Modifications and enforcement of court orders, such as Temporary Orders
  • Discovery and Investigation
