Are You Facing Divorce?
Divorce is an unfortunate event that occurs in roughly 50% of all marriages, meaning that if you are facing this difficulty, you are in good company. Sometimes, a failed marriage can dissolve with minimal stress and with both parties agreeing on the key issues, without trying to hurt each other. If you assume that this is fairly rare, then you are absolutely right. If you are not among those who can separate with ease and with kindness shown on both sides, then you are a part of the majority, and you will need an attorney to ensure that your rights are protected and that you don’t fall victim to vindictiveness.
Without a divorce lawyer representing you, you may quickly find that everything seems to be going against your best interests. You may face the loss of your property, your income, your pets, and even your children in the process of a divorce without adequate representation. Do not leave yourself vulnerable to a process that can quickly get out from under you and leave you wondering what happened. Rather, contact the divorce attorneys at Cornerstone Law Firm, get a free consultation, and learn more about how we can protect your best interests.
What About Annulments and Dissolutions?
The attorneys at Cornerstone Law Firm are prepared to assist you with a divorce or with an annulment or dissolution, as well. Even if you are not actually married, you may need a family law attorney or divorce lawyer to ensure that your rights are protected during a separation, especially in cases where you have joint financial accounts and shared children.
What Can a Divorce Lawyer Help With?
When a divorce is simple, which is rare, both parties agree to everything and sign the divorce papers without any trouble, and everything is official. When divorce is contentious, which is much more common, there are many issues to address and reach agreements on through mediation and negotiation. An attorney can help with issues like dividing your assets, establishing spousal support or child support, addressing child custody and visitation, and much more. If there was a prenuptial agreement, then your divorce attorney can make sure that this is enforced.
The best thing about hiring a divorce attorney, for both sides, is that it goes a long way towards minimizing and eliminating the need for the disagreements and disputes to become heated personal arguments and challenging legal family court battles. Your attorney will speak on your behalf and will likely be discussing these important issues with the lawyer of the other party. While both sides will try to promote the best interests of their own clients, it is easier to resolve disagreements in a professional and reasonable way when you hire the right divorce lawyer to protect your rights and interests.
Choosing the Best Divorce Lawyer for Your Needs
Once you’ve established that you do need a divorce attorney, which, in most cases, you will, it is time to choose one. This can be challenging all on its own because there are so many options out there. You will need to invest some time into researching the options, asking for referrals, reading client reviews, and scheduling free consultations to compare your options. You want to work with an attorney who has plenty of experience and success in representing a divorcing client and who will ensure that you do not get lost in the legal system and forfeit any of your rights. During your free consultations, you’ll discuss your case, your concerns, the experience and strategies of the attorney, and the price of his or her services, and how he or she will bill you for that service.
