The prospect of filing for divorce can be upsetting, frightening and sometimes 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, maintenance (or alimony), visitation and property division 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 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. A negotiated settlement means that you and your spouse will have more freedom on determining the exact terms of your divorce. But at times, these terms cannot be worked out without court assistance. Through negotiations or litigation in court, your lawyer will need to assert your rights and protect your interests every step of the way.
In some divorces, the parties have strong differences about how to best end their marriage, and a legal battle is unavoidable. You don’t have to face this alone. Our attorneys can fully and fairly advocate for you.
