Settlement out-of-court is always an optimal solution; however, if we are unable to achieve a negotiated separation agreement, Pettit and Company family lawyers can skillfully advocate on your behalf throughout the court processes with a goal of obtaining a fair and final resolution in the most cost-effective manner possible.

Cohabitation and marriage agreements

For those about to enter into a legal or common law marriage, we can negotiate a cohabitation or marriage agreement (commonly known as a “pre-nup”) that is tailored to you and your relationship, protecting your interests and clarifying the expectations of both parties.

Simple divorce proceedings

If a settlement has been achieved out of Court and all you require is a divorce, we can assist you the preparation of the necessary court document to obtain what is called a “desk order divorce”.

As a firm, we work collaboratively in order to provide our clients with that which they deserve – superior legal services at reasonable rates.  At Pettit and Company, we are committed to legal excellence -- you pay for our experience and expertise, not our real estate.
