When you have reached the point where you need a family law attorney, you are probably facing difficult conflicts at the personal level and on the home front. While we cannot make the resulting feelings of frustration go away, we endeavor to reduce them, and to make the process as easy and streamlined as possible for you.
Our office handles a wide variety of family law cases, including:
- spousal support
- child support
- custody matters
- division of assets and liabilities
Divorce, in particular, is one of the most stress-filled life events that a family can go through. People are faced with uncertainty in the most important aspects of their lives: their children’s well-being and security, their homes, their financial stability, and worries about what the future will bring. Everyone’s situation is different. We believe that both spouses need to continue to have a workable relationship to the extent possible, especially if they have children, as they will have to continue to communicate after the divorce to arrange the childrens’ lives.
While it is important that a divorce attorney is willing and able to advocate for their client’s interests, it is also important for the attorney to guide the couple to an arrangement that will serve the parents and the children well in the future. It is equally important to do this without poisoning the relationship between the divorcing parents so severely that everyone suffers in the long run. Divorce can be a traumatic and painful experience for the children involved, and the more ferocious the conflict, the harder it is on the kids. Therefore, we try to encourage reasonable communication between the parties and the other lawyer during the divorce or custody dispute. You will also find that keeping unnecessary hostility at a minimum works in the family’s favor in the long run.
