While each case is different, many
divorced spouses will tell you how disenchanted they are with the divorce system and the manner it handles a family and
its issues. An "assembly line process" accurately describes how divorces are handled in our courts,
and very little attention is placed on the emotional complexities of someone's life. To add insult to injury, divorce
lawyer's fees generally plague the system. Very few people know how to move their case to settlement without incurring
tens of thousands of dollars in fees. It doesn't have to be this way.
Everyone has heard of the "bloodbath" divorce
or simply a case that took too long and cost too much money. This all to common result can be avoided, and you can get
the results you want in the process. So, if you are a parent wanting custody of your children, or simply want what you
consider a "fair" result, these results are not fantasies, but surely can be reality with the right kind of lawyer
and right kind of approach. Looking around (online) for a lawyer is usually everyone's first step. Not a bad idea.
However, be careful and conduct your research. Selecting a lawyer shouldn't be knee-jerk or something with the
assumption that any divorce or custody lawyer will do.
Hopefully, the articles on this website will help you weed through the obstacles
of going through a divorce and help you with the pitfalls of hiring a lawyer, and give you all there is to know about the
process. If there is something you need to know, and you cannot find it on this site, please email me; I would be happy
to provide you with any information that could help.
Many divorce lawyers in the area and spouses, much like you, refer
to this website often. Please do so. I am currently updating this website to accomodate attorneys and clients
that have asked me to cover recent changes in the law and to account for recent cases that have defined how Judge's handle
certain situations in divorce. This new information should be helpful.
Again, take your time, and good luck
in the process.
