What clients say about Evolution Divorce

“I was worried my divorce would be a difficult process. My ex had access to all our legal documents, and I didn’t. Evolution took care of all the details, went to the courthouse, and got the paperwork I needed. They were thorough and advised me on the right path to navigating a sometimes frustrating court system. On top of that, Evolution Divorce’s fixed pricing model gave me peace of mind that costs would not go uncontrolled. Chris and his team gave me confidence from our first meeting and helped me get the results I wanted. ”


"The entire process of getting divorced was terrifying to me. I had never been to court and did not know what to expect. Chris and the Evolution Divorce team were a dream to work with and eased many of my fears. They kept me informed throughout the entire process - I never had to reach out to them to get questions answered because of how well they communicated. On top of that, Evolution was the only divorce lawyer I talked to that had set fees vs. having to pay hefty hourly rates. I’m super happy I went with Evolution Divorce."

Child custody disputes between divorcing spouses are, unfortunately, something many people have at least heard about. From neighbors, family, and co-workers, you may have heard some of their “stories” about the mother who “did this” or the father who “did that.” You may have jumped right into the conversation and dished your own gossip about the couple, or you may have steered clear and stayed out of it completely. Worse yet, you may have memories of your own child custody dispute.
