When you are getting ready to go through the divorce process, you should contact an experienced lawyer to represent you during your case. Your lawyer will handle all the details of your divorce, allowing you to focus on the changes in your life. Here is how our firm can help with your divorce.
Take the Time to Listen to You
Legal advice in a divorce is never a one-size-fits-all proposition. How your lawyer will advise you will depend on your specific situation. What works for one person may not be the right solution for another. Our lawyers will take the time to get to know you as a client. We will learn about your goals and what is important to you before we give you any legal advice.
Explain Your Legal Options
You may be faced with choices during your divorce case. There may be multiple paths that you can take to reach the end goal of getting a divorce. Each path comes with its ramifications. You are the one who must choose in consultation with your lawyer. Before you do so, you must understand the pros and cons of each choice.
Handle Divorce Negotiations
You would likely try to reach a divorce agreement with your spouse. This agreement is something that must be carefully negotiated. Your lawyer can negotiate with your spouse’s lawyer, removing you from direct involvement. Of course, they would negotiate based on your wishes. When you work with your lawyer, there is a better chance that you can resolve your divorce through a settlement.
Draft Important Legal Documentation
When you reach a divorce agreement, it will become part of the court order granting the divorce. The terms of the agreement will bind you. Your attorney can draft the separation agreement, or they can review the copy of the agreement that the other attorney drafted. This way, your interests are protected in the future.
Litigate Your Case in Court
If you cannot agree with your spouse, the case may head to litigation in court. The court process can be difficult and lengthy. You would need to go through the discovery process and may even have your deposition taken by your spouse’s attorney. You need an experienced litigation attorney who knows their way around the county court system. They will have experience with the individual judges and know how best to tailor the arguments toward them.
File the Papers With the Court
Each court has specific rules about how to make filings with them. Courts may reject a filing entirely if it is not in the proper format and all the requirements have not been followed. You do not want to lose any time because of clerical errors. Your attorney has staff familiar with the proper formatting and how to file documents in each court. Otherwise, having to file court papers on your own can be stressful.
