It’s not all about revenge…
Assuming you are not experienced at divorcing your spouse, the process can be complex and confusing. Even an amicable divorce can be done wrong without help. The courts must make certain declarations as they attempt to dissolve your marriage. A divorce lawyer to should ask you questions about
- your family needs,
- the future relationship with your children, and
- the future relationship with your former spouse.
The court doesn’t have time to ask these questions so its your lawyer’s job to identify and protect you and your family’s best interests.
