Wyoming Divorce Attorney

Southeastern Wyoming Divorce Lawyer

Divorce is difficult and traumatic. Without skilled legal representation in Cheyenne, Wyoming, the effects of a divorce can be devastating. The Law Office of Shelly Kay Flot guides clients through the entire process from filing for divorce to modifying custody and support agreements.

Our clients have questions about how to file for a divorce in Wyoming. Though the process is complex, the assistance of an attorney can greatly increase your chances of getting the kind of outcome you deserve.

Wyoming is a no-fault divorce state and divorcing spouses do not need to assign fault in order to divorce. There are minimum requirements for a divorce in Wyoming, including:

  • Reside in Wyoming for a minimum of 60 days prior to filing
  • Have proof of residency

Wherever possible, our firm tries to help divorcing spouses come to a divorce settlement agreement. This can decrease the amount of time and money spent on the divorce by allowing the divorcing parties to hammer out agreements about property, debts, children and alimony.

Property Division And Alimony

Because finances lie at the heart of many divorces, clients considering filing for bankruptcy should ensure that they complete the bankruptcy proceedings before filing for divorce. Our office counsels clients to maximize their financial savings by closing out the bankruptcy process before proceeding with the divorce.

Wyoming judges do not favor alimony payments. In general, if spouses have been married for three years or less and he or she did not contribute financially to the marriage, alimony is rarely awarded. Spousal support payments are ordered to get a spouse back on his or her feet.

As a fair and equitable distribution state, Wyoming judges divide marital property and assets by considering multiple factors, including the length of the marriage, how much each spouse makes and the contributions of each spouse. Our firm will help you gather the necessary information to build the best possible case about your contributions to the marriage.
