Even in the best circumstances, divorce is an emotionally and financially draining process. Choosing the right attorney to guide you through this process can greatly reduce the financial and emotional strain that divorce places on your family. You need counsel that is compassionate and can understand the complexities of your particular custody, parenting and financial issues, with the experience and skill to effectively negotiate your settlement or present these issues to the Probate and Family Court when necessary.
Every divorce ends by either reaching a settlement, and there are many paths we can take to achieve this end. For cases in which we are able to negotiate a final settlement without input and assistance from the Probate and Family Court, an uncontested divorce may be the best option. This allows clients through counsel or using a mediator to negotiate a final resolution to all of the issues in their divorce, including, but not limited to custody, asset division, a parenting plan, child support and alimony.
In many instances, the parties are unable to reach any consensus as to the issues of custody, parenting time, asset division and alimony, and we must engage in litigation to get assistance from the court in resolving the case. These cases are often settled during the litigation, but it is important that you choose an attorney who is prepared to take your case to trial if necessary. You need an attorney with the knowledge to develop a strategic plan for litigating your case, who also has the experience to pivot and make adjustments as the litigation unfolds.
