Overland Park Divorce Lawyer | Workable Solutions to Difficult Family Law Issues

When you are in the middle of a divorce or facing the prospect of a divorce, you face major life-changes and may have serious concerns about an uncertain future. The issues in a divorce will impact the most important and intimate aspects of your life. We know you may be worried about your children, home and financial future. At Hyland Law Firm, LLC, we are committed to providing constructive legal representation in divorce cases designed to reduce the stress, cost and conflict that can be present in the divorce process.

Many people have misconceptions about the divorce process acquired from the divorce stories of others or movies like "The War of the Roses." These stories of bitter conflict and hostility are not an accurate depiction of most Kansas divorces. Experienced Overland Park divorce attorney Charles J. Hyland is often able to guide his clients through the conflicting emotions of anger, pain and confusion that can derail an amicable resolution to divorce issues by taking a problem solving business-like approach. When parties to a divorce are able to reach a negotiated settlement to issues like alimony (spousal maintenance), child custody and visitation, property division, spousal support, and other divorce issues, it mitigates long-term conflict, reduces stress on both parties to the divorce and their children, and provides for more stable solutions that prevent repeated trips back to court.

Our law firm handles the full spectrum of divorce issues from simple uncontested divorces to complex divorces involving high net worth estates and high conflict custody disputes. Some of the divorce issues that we have the experience and expertise to handle, including but are not limited to the following:

  • Contested divorces
  • Uncontested divorces
  • High conflict child custody disputes
  • Equitable distribution of property and debts
  • Spousal maintenance (alimony)
  • Parental relocations (parental move away cases)
  • Divorces involving high net worth estates
  • Valuation and division of interest in a family business or professional practice
  • Child support
  • Domestic violence injunctions
  • Division of retirement plans (QDROs)
  • Child visitation arrangements

Our Overland Park divorce law firm customizes our approach to fit the specific needs of our client and the issues in the divorce. Many times we can use alternate dispute resolution methods, such as negotiation, mediation and collaborative law to reach amicable divorce settlements. Mr. Hyland is often able to facilitate an agreement by carefully explaining a client's rights and the likely outcome or range of outcomes that a judge might reach on a particular issue. He can also provide objective feedback so that you can more effectively navigate the emotional roadblocks that can prevent a workable solution to a specific issue.

Although Mr. Hyland and his experienced staff work diligently to guide clients to constructive mutually beneficial solutions to difficult divorce issues, he also knows that sometimes the issues are too contentious or the other party too uncooperative to negotiate a marital settlement agreement. An example of the type of issue that may lead to a more contentious divorce includes a child custody and visitation case where there are allegations of spousal abuse, child abuse, or substance abuse.

When a divorce cannot be amicably resolved, our Overland Park divorce law firm is prepared to zealously advocate for the best interest of our clients and their children. If our client is involved in a contentious divorce, we are prepared to conduct thorough discovery, develop compelling legal positions, and provide persuasive advocacy.
