Divorce and Property Division

Thinking through the difficult decisions

In the turmoil and intense feelings of a broken marriage, it is easy to lose sight of the long-term implications. It is important to work with someone who can help you understand how your decisions today will affect your life after the divorce.

Holleman Law Firm tailors solutions to your unique circumstances, protecting your interests without fanning the flames or setting you up for future conflicts. Our goal is a fair and practical agreement on division of marital assets and the custody and care of children.

Two paths to divorce in Mississippi:

  • Irreconcilable differences — If you have decided to part ways and agree on all issues of property, financial support and child custody, you can be divorced after a 60-day waiting period. Even in uncontested divorces, legal counsel is crucial to fully protect your interests — don’t sacrifice your future in your haste to get divorced!
  • Fault-based (contested) divorce — Either spouse can file on grounds such as adultery, alcohol or drug addiction, desertion, or cruel and inhuman treatment. These proceedings can get nasty and costly, and in our experience, dwelling on past behavior clouds the important legal and financial issues that will truly matter as you move on with your lives.
