The end of your marriage is difficult for some people to deal with. For some, the thought of ending something that you have so much invested in is disheartening. Still, there are some instances when divorce is in your best interests. We understand that this is an emotional time. While we can't make that aspect of marriage any easier, we can work with you to help you learn about your options for handling the matter.
Two of the biggest issues that you might have to handle when you are going through a divorce are the child custody case and the property division process. Both of these have the possibility of affecting you for years to come.
We know that you want what is best for your children when you are working through child custody matters. You need to make sure that you are thinking logically about what your children need. Ideally, you and your ex will be able to work as a team to come up with the custody terms. Doing this will help you keep your child's unique needs and desires at the heart of the matter.
Property division is a fully separate matter that you have to deal with in a divorce. As you go through the assets and debts of the marriage, make sure you are looking at how they will affect your life right now, but you also have to think about what they will mean to you in the future. You may think that you want a specific asset, but when you realize what the overall cost to keep it up will be, you might change your mind. We can help you work through the options and come up with a plan in your case.
