What To Expect In A Divorce
Many people who have been through the divorce process can tell you about the strange mixture of emotions they experienced. They may tell you that the end of the marriage itself was a stressful and highly emotional experience, but much of the actual work of the divorce itself felt more like paperwork.
When a married couple decides to go their separate ways, they must go through a process of dividing their property and legally dissolving their marriage. The process mixes the highly emotional and the mundane, and it isn’t always easy to turn off the emotions when mundane issues come up. For that and other reasons, it really helps to have a skilled professional on your side during divorce, helping you make decisions that can have long-term consequences for the next stage of your life.
At The Law Office of Sofia Balile, Esq., we understand how difficult divorce can be for our clients, and we work hard to protect their interests. We handle such issues as:
- Uncontested divorce
- Contested divorce
- Property division
- Child custody
- Alimony/spousal support
Settlement Or Trial?
Essentially, there are two ways to resolve a divorce. Either you and your spouse come to agreement on how to go your separate ways, or you must go to court and have a judge decide for you. There are advantages and disadvantages to each approach.
Most divorces are resolved with a settlement between the spouses. This typically requires a lot of negotiation, and this can mean a lot of uncomfortable time spent around a table with your soon-to-be ex-spouse. A good lawyer will help protect you from emotionally manipulative or abusive behavior and keep the negotiations on track toward the best settlement.
Going to trial gives you the chance to argue your case in front of a court, but it usually takes more time and is more expensive than a negotiated settlement. When you are our client, we will help you find the path that will lead to the best resolution.
