Standing by Your Side Throughout Your Divorce or Separation
Going through a divorce or separation is often described as one of the most difficult life events, possibly second only to the death of a loved one. Even when someone is positively sure divorce is the right – perhaps only – option, the process will still be stressful and emotional. It’s just human nature.
And, the process doesn’t really end with the final divorce decree, there are many changes after a divorce that families need to adapt to as they start over.
In the majority of cases, couples will become legally separated prior to getting a divorce. Separation does not, however, mean that you are automatically going to move forward with a divorce. In some situations, couples are able to better work out their issues when they have a little space.
Regardless, handling a legal separation properly is extremely important. Many issues have to be addressed – child custody, support payments, who lives in the house, much more. An experienced attorney at this stage can help to ensure everything is done correctly.
Divorce is a fairly generic term for a process that can vary greatly from couple to couple. In some cases, the couple works together, often with the help of a mediator, to agree on a division of assets, child custody, and other issues. In other situations, it is necessary to litigate the case in front of a judge. Some divorces fall somewhere between the two where some things are mutually agreed, and others need to be addressed in the court.
No matter how amicable or contentious your relationship may be, having an attorney who can provide you with legal advice, help you with the paperwork, and when necessary, fight aggressively for your rights, is essential. It is never too early to talk with an attorney about divorce to come up with an effective strategy based on your needs and wants.
