Life Goes On

A divorce is not the end of the world. If you have children, you need to know that a divorce does not end your relationship with your former spouse. It changes the nature of your relationship.

What To Expect

The tone that is set at the beginning of the divorce will be carried forward for a long time to come. Overly aggressive representation by your attorney can result in extraordinary fees and costs, bad feelings, emotional turmoil and is NOT a guarantee of an outcome that could have, or should have been achieved through working together.

The Hardest Part

Custody of children is often the most difficult aspect of a divorce case. You need to understand the court believes that it is in the best interests of the children for them to be able to see BOTH of their parents, often and with quality time. It is not 100% guaranteed that the mother will automatically have full physical custody, each situation is different.

Alimony is based on each party’s income, education, age, length of marriage and varies from case to case and judge to judge.

Property & Debt Division

The Majority of property and debts acquired during the marriage will be split 50/50. Inherited property and pre-marital property can, but is not always be treated differently.
