Dissolution of Marriage is more than a legal problem; it is also a lifestyle change. A divorce affects every aspect of your life. You are single rather than married. Your financial status changes; your relationships with friends, parents, in-laws and even your own children change. Your residence may change, you own less property, less furniture and you have less money and income. Your credit may be harmed. And as family law litigation can be a complicated experience, trusting in the experience and knowledge of a divorce lawyer can ultimately make the difference in the overall difficulty of your proceedings.
If you are considering a divorce, you need to completely change the way you think and act. It is vital that you understand that you are no longer “partners” with your spouse. They will now be acting in their own best interest. Therefore, you will need to take care of yourself in terms of your financial assets. You need to take steps immediately to protect your money and get control of your financial situation. Even before you talk to your spouse, you should talk to a divorce lawyer about your legal rights and the steps you need to take to prepare for your divorce. Divorce is more complicated than most people believe. We will help you understand the issues of your particular situation and we can help you develop a plan for preparing for and surviving your divorce financially.
It is also critically important to remember that you have to live with the consequences of your actions during the divorce, which is especially important when there are children involved. Rather than striking out in anger or retaliating in kind, it is important for you to try to take the “high road” where the children are involved. We can assist you in understanding the best way to protect your children from being involved in your divorce and we can guide you through the difficult times as well. My philosophy is to attack the business aspects of the case while making sure the emotional aspects are dealt with sensitively and in an environment of respect and professionalism.
