Each week we post a blog about relevant legal issues. Glance through our various topics to learn more about a particular legal situation.
There is almost nothing more heartbreaking than finding out that the marriage you fought for is over. When you are facing a divorce, it is time to stop focusing on the couple and start focusing on you. We realize that this is easier said than done, but you must find a way to do just that.
One thing that you need to remember from the first day of the divorce is that your ex isn't looking out for your best interests any longer. Instead, your ex is going to be looking out for himself or herself.
As you work on the decisions that must be made, you need to have a clear mind. It is very easy to let your emotions rule in these cases. Letting this happen is an almost certain recipe for disaster. You need to look at the facts and focus on what will be able to help you now and in the future.
Many divorces are handled through collaborative methods. This means that you and your ex sit down and work out the terms of the divorce. In many cases, you will work with a third-party to get this done, which is very helpful if you and your ex can't get along.
We understand that you might not be sure where to start with your divorce. We can help you to learn about what issues need to be negotiated. We can help you to find solutions to present to the other side. As we work through all of this, we will work to protect your rights and your future.
