Edwardsville Divorce Attorney

One fear that people may have when they are going through a divorce is that the process will be a long, drawn-out one that will drain them of their resources. Such an extended process can be difficult on the divorcing spouses, but also on any children who may be waiting for the situation to be resolved.

It doesn’t have to be this way. At the firm of Swanson & Sackett, P.C., we have found that many divorce cases are settled relatively early in the process. This is generally a good strategy for our clients in Edwardsville. It can shorten a potentially long process, benefiting both parents and children.

However, this isn’t to say that we will push for a settlement if it doesn’t make sense for our clients. When this happens, we will be prepared to argue your case in court.

Because of the potential for divorce cases to be complex, several other issues may come into play, including child support. Paternity and the rights of fathers are also topics that our lawyers are prepared to handle should they apply to you.


No two divorce cases are alike. Military divorces, for example, may apply for personnel at Scott Air Force Base. As an Air Force veteran, attorney Michael J. Swanson understands the unique circumstances that often apply to military families who are going through a divorce.

Because they frequently move, traditional custody and visitation orders don’t always make sense for military divorce cases. Military pensions and benefits are also handled differently than their civilian counterparts.
