Choosing between child rearing and child support

All parents must make decisions based on what they believe is in the best interests of themselves, their families and their children. These decisions are not always easy to make, nor are they always easy to feel sure of once they are made. In addition, many parents feel judgment from others for choosing one path or another. But in the end, only you can know what is best for you, your child and your family.

The stages of 'survive, alive and thrive' during and post-divorce

Many clients who interview attorneys at the start of their divorce process want to know what they can expect. Certainly, experienced divorce attorneys can tell you what to expect in terms of fees, the legal process and how they will ultimately help you to construct a financial settlement and a child custody order. However, many individuals navigating divorce for the first time want to know what they can expect emotionally from the process, and this is a question that is ultimately harder to answer than the one that is more procedural.

How to choose a divorce lawyer who will be a good fit for you

If you are thinking about divorcing your spouse, you are likely overwhelmed with the emotions and practicalities associated with this decision. For better and for worse, spouses cannot simply decide to go their separate ways. In order to no longer be joined in the eyes of the law, spouses must file for legal separation or divorce.

Why kids often feel that unhappy parents should embrace divorce

If you have kids and are either seeking a divorce or have recently finalized one, you likely have concerns about how your divorce is affecting and will affect your children. It is both normal and healthy that you are worried about your children’s wellbeing. However, there is good news to be had. Regardless of what your child custody arrangements look like, if you take excellent care of yourself and your kids, they may actually thank you one day for getting a divorce.
