In Iowa, a divorce is referred to as a dissolution which involves three primary areas: property division, alimony, and child custody. The best opportunity for divorcing parties to control the outcome, is to come to an agreement on their own. If the parties do not resolve all issues, a trial judge will determine the rights and responsibilities of the divorcing parties. Our firm offers legal assistance in all 3 areas of divorce and will explore reasonable solutions for limited scope representation. As an alternative option, our firm also offers full legal representation in all divorce matters.
We offer limited legal services in estate planning matters, the most common, a draft or modification of a Will. Other services include: Power of Attorney (POA) for both health care and financial decisions, HIPPA Release, Living Will, and a Declaration of Final Disposition.
