When spouses want to end a short-term marriage, this can be done in a couple of ways, depending on the circumstances. The marriage may be eligible for annulment or the parties may have to file for divorce. An experienced lawyer can help analyze your situation to determine what option is appropriate.
I am attorney Kathryn Tolison. Through my Brighton-based law firm, Tolison & Williams, Attorneys at Law, LLC, I assist clients with a wide range of legal concerns, including divorce or annulment of short-term marriages. I will thoroughly examine your situation to help determine your options and then will skillfully guide you through the legal process. My goal is to help you find the best resolution as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.
The process for divorce is the same for shorter marriages. The only difference is there is less likelihood that spousal maintenance or alimony will be awarded to either spouse. Property division usually entails more nonmarital assets, as spouses have not had time to accumulate assets together. However, there may be wedding presents and other gifts to consider.
As your attorney, I will work through every aspect of your divorce, including property division and issues involving children, if necessary. I will keep you updated regarding your options and developments in your case and address any concerns you have at every step.
