DON’T JEOPARDIZE YOUR CHILDREN OR YOUR FINANCIAL SECURITY. CHOOSE THE RIGHT DIVORCE ATTORNEY NOW.
You never imagined that one day you would be going through a divorce. But now that you are, you need to know what to expect, what is at stake, and how your choices will affect you and your children before you can understand the importance of choosing the right divorce attorney.
Divorce ends your legal status as “married” and all of the related benefits. Your divorce will have a deep emotional and profound financial impact on you and everyone involved. It requires the division of everything you and your spouse have ever worked for both before and during marriage. It determines how much support you will either pay or receive, and for how long. Most importantly, it determines when you will see your children.
Many decisions of the Family Court are permanent and unchangeable, i.e., division of property. Some decisions may be changed but are very difficult to make and may cause unintended consequences, e.g., child custody and visitation. The often-fragile relationship between parents can be strained, even destroyed, because of the hurtful allegations exchanged. In the worst cases, children are drawn into the parents’ struggle, which can leave them with long-lasting emotional scars. Some decisions are intended to change, but doing so often involves significant costs with no guarantee of success, e.g., support.
The outcome of these decisions are highly dependent upon the quality of the attorney you select to help you. If the Court doesn't get it right the first time, you may never be able to fix the problems and certainly you will pay at least double what you should trying to rectify them. With so much on-the-line, doesn't it make sense to engage the best divorce attorney available? Selecting anyone else is just asking for problems. Your future depends on the quality of the guidance you receive during your divorce.
