How do I get a divorce in Mississippi?

First take a deep breath. We know your mind is swimming about all of the recent events, and you don’t feel like yourself. Everything is going to be okay. You found us, and we are in the business of providing clarity. We know the answers to your biggest questions and how the system works, and together we will set goals and a plan of action – one step at a time.  

Seeing an attorney does not mean you are going to get a divorce.

You didn’t go into this thing thinking divorce is an option, and you feel a little guilty for even visiting this site – even thinking about the “D” word. You are not a quitter. You don’t want to put your life on a conveyor belt of chaos headed into a furnace filled with lawyers and a judge who will put together a bunch of papers to control the important parts of your life. You feel embarrassed and uncomfortable for even reading the words on this screen. You feel angry, sad and confused about what will happen next.  However, it is not okay to live in hell just because you know the names of all the streets.  Remember, you were not designed to cope but to thrive. 

"R+A handled my divorce. They were kind, supportive, knowledgeable and efficient. The team encouraged me when I was heartbroken; their knowledge and skill enabled me to move quickly through an experience I never wanted to have. Each decision was my own, but they gave me all the facts and all my options so I could make wise decisions. I'm so grateful that they were on my side." 

Lawyers get a bad rap. 

Sometimes we deserve it. The good news is nobody at Robertson + Associates is going to tell you to get a divorce. That is not our role and is frankly none of our business. We don’t even know you yet. What you need is wise counsel –information about how the legal system works in Mississippi and how it could impact your future. You need to know how to protect your rights, duties and responsibilities as a parent, and  everything is going to work out from a financial standpoint. For a small investment in a meeting with a member of our team, you will feel like the weight of the world has been lifted from your shoulders, because you will no longer be in the dark when it comes to your future. 

Spend some time digging into this website. It has a wealth of free information that is yours to keep. You can get all of the blogs we wrote from 2010-2015 in one fancy file HERE.  However, when you are ready to arm yourself with information customized to your personal situation, not necessarily move toward a divorce, please START HERE.
