Divorce is a time of great distress and worry. Statistics show that the stress associated with divorce is second only to the stress associated with the death of a child. It can oftentimes feel overwhelming and out of control. Worries about your future and your children's future occupy your mind for hours on end: Have I made the right decision? Will I be able to survive on my own? What are we going to tell the kids? How will they come through? Your thoughts and decisions may change from moment to moment as you navigate the dark and unknown waters of divorce, making decisions that will affect you and your family for the rest of your life. While you may be committed to getting the "best deal" in the beginning of the process, oftentimes months into it you simply want to cut the last strings that bind you to your ex together and move on, at any cost.
There are so many decisions to make from beginning to end; one of the most important decisions is who to hire to represent you. To that end, you may need to meet with several different attorneys before you find the one that is the right fit for you. If that happens, instead of thinking about it as a waste of time, think of it as an investment into your future. Making the wrong decision about who you will work with can bring added and unnecessary stress. There are many options to choose from regarding how to get divorced. These include litigation, mediation, and Collaborative Law, just to name a few. Each choice you make brings with it certain natural consequences that will affect how your divorce plays out. It is imperative to understand the benefits and burdens of each option and to pick the one best suited to you and your family's needs. Hire an attorney who is committed to you. Hire an attorney who cares about the outcome for you. Hire an attorney who knows what is important to fight about, and also knows what should be set aside. Hire an attorney who can get you to the other side of this safely, and with dignity.
