We Know How to Navigate Mississippi’s Divorce Laws
We advise and represent our clients in an array of end-of-marriage scenarios, including uncontested and contested divorces, military divorces, child custody and visitation, child support, property division, and alimony. While navigating Mississippi’s complicated divorce law, we do so, which doesn’t make dissolving a marriage easy for either party.
Some Crucial Facts to Consider
All divorces go through a separate court – called a chancery court. There is no guarantee a judge will approve a divorce – even an uncontested one.
Mississippi is a no-fault state, which means if one party contests the divorce, and there are no legal grounds for the dissolution, divorce isn’t possible.
Finally, the state requires a property settlement agreement before the final divorce.
We Protect Your Rights During Division of Property
Outside of settling child custody and support concerns – as well as alimony – property division is the most emotional portion of the divorce proceedings. It is also incredibly complex. For instance, both parties must make an exhaustive list of their property and list whether they obtained the items before the marriage or during it. As for financial matters, all money is split down the middle. However, some retirement accounts, such as 401ks and IRAs, require a skilled attorney and some time to negotiate. Heidi S. Milam, Attorney at Law, PLLC will protect your rights and assets during this process and ensure you don’t lose more than you should.
