Joint Petition Divorces
Critics have charged that the process, when assisted by an attorney, inherently gives the appearance that the attorney is representing both parties, which would (of course) be an actual conflict of interest. Dual representation is forbidden by existing rules of ethics.
WILLICK LAW GROUP has concluded that the ethical pitfalls and invitation to challenges inherent in attorney-assisted joint petitions are such that we do not file any such actions. Instead, our divorce actions are completed under the traditional Complaint/Answer system of pleading, in the interest of minimizing the chances of an appearance of impropriety, and increasing the chances that any resolution reached will pass muster by any reviewing court.
