Complete Divorce Services from Engaged & Determined Attorneys

At Hope Law Firm, our Des Moines divorce lawyers and family law paralegals strive to provide skilled, aggressive, and cost-effective legal services. We understand that a great deal of your stress comes from not knowing what to expect from the divorce process, so we provide the information you need to maintain your peace of mind. From the moment you retain our services, we remain accessible with flexible office hours and 24-hour phone service so you can have your divorce questions answered as they arise.

Whether we pursue mediation to achieve an uncontested divorce or litigate contentious issues to uphold your parental and property rights, you can be confident that you’re receiving quality representation for all your divorce concerns.

We can assist you with matters involving:

  • Child custody and support — The court makes decisions based on the best interests of the children. We present your case persuasively to protect your parental rights and the welfare of your children.
  • Equitable distribution of property — The court is charged with identifying marital assets and debts and dividing them in a manner that is fair. As your advocates, we assert your rights to retain your separate property and receive the share of marital assets to which you’re entitled.
  • Alimony — Spousal support is not automatic. The court considers many factors when deciding whether alimony is called for and in what amount. Our attorneys work diligently to persuade the court to weigh factors that favor your future financial security.

Your divorce does not have to be an agonizing process. With concerned legal counsel, you can look forward with confidence and hope.

Am I Eligible to File for Divorce in Iowa?

Generally, there is a one-year residency requirement for filing for dissolution of marriage in Iowa. If you have been a resident in Iowa for at least one year but your spouse is not an Iowa resident, you can file for divorce in your county of residence. If you are not an Iowa resident but your spouse is an Iowa resident, you can file for divorce in the county where the resident spouse resides, if they are personally served. If both spouses are Iowa residents, then the petition for dissolution of marriage can be filed in the county where either spouse resides.

If you and your spouse are eligible for divorce, the filing may just be the beginning of an impending legal battle in Iowa courts. Consult with an experienced Des Moines divorce attorney as soon as you think divorce is on the horizon. With the proper planning and legal guidance, alimony payments and property distribution can be determined in the most favorable manner possible. To prevent venue shopping, Iowa law provides residency requirements for filing for divorce. Hope Law Firm can help you determine whether you are eligible for divorce and, if you are, walk you through the process.
