Imagine begin married for years and years to your high school sweetheart. The two of you have a great relationship. But in recent months, the disagreements have become more frequent. Eventually, the two of you are just on different sides of every issue. As more time passes, it dawns on the both of you: this marriage isn’t going to last, and you decide that it is best for everyone involved to get a divorce.
This is a tough decision to make, but ultimately a divorce can actually be a solution to a problem (an unhappy and unfulfilling marriage). It is the next steps that you take that are more important than the decision to divorce itself. There are many issues that will be on the table during a divorce, and it is in your best interests to have experienced legal representation throughout the process.
If you have children, then child custody and child support will be central issues to your divorce. Property division will also be a critical issue. Past debts, assets, spousal support and many other factors will be involved in a divorce. And it behooves you to be prepared for these topics.
