Separation or divorce from a partner is a legal and an emotional process. Most clients want to understand the legal process but many also need support and coaching from the professionals that serve and support them throughout the process. We believe the relationship between the attorney and client, given that the legal process of divorce is personal and affects virtually every aspect of life, is a special relationship.
|We assist clients with all areas of family law practice including divorce (below), custody, modification, paternity, orders of protection (restraining orders), enforcement and collection, step-parent adoption, etc. For a list of some of the actions taken in Family Court, see our page, Taking Action in Family Court
It is important that you also understand the choices available to move through the divorce or separation process. These include the following:
Because divorce effects you, your children, your home and your finances, we believe that the issues in a divorce or separation are often best resolved by exploring opportunities for you to participate in exploring solutions. By helping you and your spouse improve communication and becoming focused on your interests and goals for the future, we make every effort to help you arrive at an agreement that meets your needs and that may be more satisfactory than a decision made by a third party. We make every effort to help you consider options; weigh costs and benefits; and analyze possible outcomes.
When agreement is not possible, we are also experienced in presenting your case at court. We help you understand the litigation process; work with you to prepare for court testimony; and engage you in the process of preparing for trial so that you are satisfied with our efforts at trial.
