Facing a Divorce
The legal action of ending a marriage, although common, is an extremely
challenging and difficult experience.  Even when ready to part ways,
divorce touches the parties, their children, and their extended family in a
deep and emotional way.  Taking the steps to terminate a marriage can be
crushing in the sense that it means the end of a once loving relationship.  

If you are considering a divorce it is recommended that you browse the
Divorce FAQ section of this website to learn more about the process.  

The Issues Involved

Some divorces are resolved quickly while others can be lengthy,
complicated, and expensive.  If each party is cooperative, the process can
generally move at a rapid pace.  The process may be slowed in the face of
disputes over property, the allocation of debts, child custody, child
visitation, and child support.  When these disputes arise, advocacy,
negotiation, patience, and working within the system often yield the best
long-term results.

Choosing an Attorney

Because divorce is an emotionally difficult time, it is important to retain
an attorney that understands your needs and can provide you the type of
representation vital to the process.  Success for a client depends on the
practical application of legal theory and problem solving skills.  The best
divorce lawyers are invariably those who have earned a reputation by
consistently securing their client's legal rights in various divorce cases.

Always Remember

Whether filing a divorce or responding to a divorce petition it is
imperative that you consult with a family law attorney who can advise you
of your position and the options available to satisfy your goals.
