The prospect of getting a divorce can be upsetting, frightening and potentially liberating. The wide range of emotions that a person may experience can make this process all the more difficult, particularly when such matters as custody, child support, and division of assets need to be addressed. Even a divorce which starts out amicably may turn into a bitter, drawn out legal battle as you and your spouse seek different outcomes that you feel address your needs, your children’s well-being, and protect your finances.
If you are considering divorce, consulting with an attorney is one of the most important actions to take. You may not need to retain a lawyer, but consulting with one is a wise decision. You and your spouse will need to come to a complete agreement about all terms of your divorce or you will face court proceedings where these matters will be decided by a judge. Most often, it is less time-consuming and expensive to work out an agreement out of the courtroom. You may be able to work out everything that you need to after a single consultation with me at my office.
Regardless of whether you and your spouse are able to come to an amiable agreement, or whether you cannot agree on anything, you can find the support you need from my law firm. I have extensive trial experience and I am a skilled and talented negotiator.
