Years of courtroom drama TV, Oscar-worthy performances depicting the emotional devastation of a divorce trial and magazine covers featuring the floating heads of celebrities whose marriages ended have conditioned the public to believe that a divorce might as well be your spouse declaring war.
While protracted divorce litigation is certainly alive and well in all 50 states, the fact of the matter is that it simply doesn’t have to be this way.
If you are facing the looming prospect of a divorce, you can take control of the situation early and keep the wheels from coming off the wagon.
Get the help you need before it’s necessary and keep the process civil
It is vitally important that you take positive action to keep your divorce from running off the rails. One of the best ways to keep things sane and civil is to enlist the help of an attorney who is qualified in divorce mediation.
With professional help, it is very possible for even complex divorces to be settled fairly without the need to litigate.
A truly excellent divorce attorney understands that both of you deserve to start a new life with a fair division of assets, and should be able to do so as soon as possible without spending the foreseeable future dwindling your resources away just trying to get the marriage behind you.
Preparation is key to a successful divorce
Divorces have a tendency to become exponentially more complicated for those who have significant estates. In these cases, even for the most amicable of splits, it is probably not possible to simply sit down over coffee with your spouse and come up with a fair division of assets.
Proper counsel can help you get a grasp of the many areas that your divorce will affect, and help you gather the necessary documentation to create a fair assessment of your specific case.
With the guidance of an exceptional divorce counselor, you can confidently and fairly negotiate a wide range of issues, from basics like the fate of a marital home and custody agreements involving children, to more complex issues like extensions of health insurance coverage for qualifying spouses or who will claim a child as a dependant for tax purposes.
Protecting your rights is protecting your future
Because divorce affects so many areas of your life, it is vitally important to not enter into one without proper guidance.
While some couples are able to reach a fair divorce agreement without the help of experienced attorneys, these cases are rare. With the help of an experienced attorney, you take control of your divorce and ensure that your rights remain protected while building a better future for yourself and your family.
No matter how simple or complex your divorce may be, you can act now to demand fair and civil treatment as you venture out into a new season of life.
