Dissolution of Marriage/Divorce

Divorce is a very stressful and emotional time. In these times, it is important to realize that if you fight your case alone, your heart may want to fight a battle that your brain knows is not in the best interests of you and your children. It is important, given your emotional investment in your relationships with your spouse and your children that you have an independent, third party available to help you navigate a complex court system. This is what an attorney can do for you.

  • Can I get alimony/maintenance?
  • Will I be able to keep the house?
  • Where will the children live?
  • Will the other parent be able to have time with the children?
  • How much will I have to pay in child support?

These are all questions need to know prior to heading to Court. Further, your attorney will take the day-to-day headache of dealing with the divorce away. Your attorney can negotiate on your behalf; make court appearance with you or on your behalf; can draft Separation Agreements, Parenting Plans, Child Support Orders, and other complex legal documents for you; can schedule hearings, mediation, meetings, and other court dates; and can talk to your soon-to-be ex-spouse or his/her attorney about very important emotional topics, which can save you a lot of grief during an already emotional time. Or, your attorney can be a shoulder to cry on, when you just need to talk.

Preparing for and appearing in Court for complex hearings are very difficult obstacles to traverse for those of us not educated in the law. Knowledge of Rules of Civil Procedure, Local Procedure, and Rules of Evidence are imperative to seek a just result. Hiring an attorney to navigate this judicial minefield can benefit you long after the representation is finished. You will save valuable time and money not having to go back to Court in the years to come because there is a disagreement over the wording of the Parenting Plan that you drafted on your own.
