Following is a list of services Jacob Colgrove offers, along with a short description of each service -

*Contested Divorce -
Parties cannot agree on the terms of divorce, such as alimony, custody, visitation, child support, and division of assets.
• Fault - Grounds and property and/or support are in dispute; trial necessary if not settled.
• No-Fault - Property and/or support in dispute; if no agreement is reached, the case goes to trial.

*Uncontested Divorce -
Parties agree to all matters, and present an executed separation agreement to the court for approval.
• Fault - Unusual since uncontested divorces avoid conflict; insisting on fault destroys the cooperative nature of uncontested matters.
• No-Fault - Signed agreement presented to the court for its approval.

*Contract Law -
A set of rules governing the relationship, content and validity of an agreement between two or more persons (individuals, companies or some other institution) regarding the sale of goods, provision of services or exchange of interests or ownership.

*General Civil Trial -

• A losing defendant in civil litigation only reimburses the plaintiff for losses caused by the defendant's behavior.

*Criminal Trial -
In criminal law, the litigation is always filed by the government, who is called the prosecution.
Felonies have a minimum possible sentence of more than one year incarceration,
Misdemeanors have a maximum possible sentence of one year incarceration.
