Consider the practical aspects of a divorce settlement

Making a decision to divorce isn't something that should be taken lightly. Individuals who take this step have often tried everything possible to make the marriage work. Even before the divorce is filed, the time to protect yourself is now. You need to make sure that you aren't putting yourself in a difficult position with any future divorce verdict or settlement.

You and your soon-to-be ex should to work together to negotiate the terms of the divorce as much as possible.  You can help minimize your attorney fees and keep the decisions between yourselves instead of being made by the lawyers and the courts. This process can take a while since it is likely going to involve some back and forth about who gets what. While you are going through this, don't let your emotions rule. We can help you look at the options from a practical standpoint.

If this is a high asset divorce, you will need to think carefully about what assets you need for your new life. Some assets have upkeep costs. You might need to limit the number of these that you are going to receive. Remember that you are going to be counting only on your own income to pay bills now. You don't need the assets that you keep to be a source of stress.

Throughout your marriage, your spouse likely helped to ensure that your best interests were protected. Now that you are going through a divorce, he or she won't be there to do this. We will work with you to make sure that your rights are being respected. If the negotiations with your ex don't pan out, it will be time to prepare for a divorce trial to get things finalized.
