The breakup of a marriage can be an extremely painful and stressful time for individuals and their families, impacting people emotionally and financially. These challenges become even greater when children are involved.

When contemplating a separation or divorce, people will have many worries and concerns about the future. It is important for you to understand that there are a number of ways to address these concerns.

Litigation is not the only option. Perhaps an amicable settlement agreement can be reached through attorneys without the need for court intervention and litigation. Mediation and collaborative law are other options that should also be explored.

You should consider that how you go about resolving your differences will affect your children and guide the way they learn to resolve differences with others in life.

Given what is at stake, it is imperative that you become educated and informed not only about the “substantive” areas of the law (such as separation, divorce, parenting issues, property rights, and support), but also about how to avoid the many pitfalls of the “process.”

Please use the navigation bars on the left to learn more about each area of practice or type of case handled.
