Thinking of divorce? What to do first.
Going through a divorce is never easy, and it can be overwhelming to navigate
the legal process on your own. That's why I have spent over 35 years
educating and coaching spouses on the best ways to divorce. Did you know
there is more than just one way to divorce?
We offer comprehensive and free consultations to help you understand your
options and are happy to guide you towards the best, most informed decisions
to help you move forward successfully. Choosing the right divorce path
for yourself is the key to less stress, and better results while keeping
the family finances in the family.
However, whether you are meeting with me or another divorce attorney/mediator,
before you head to your free consultation, it's important to prepare
yourself with a list of questions that will help you get the most out
of your meeting.

there are several different paths you can take depending on your situation.

I can often evaluate the marital dynamics and make recommendations for
the process that will best address and support the most productive divorce outcome.
2. How Will Custody of Our Children Be Determined? If you have children,
custody will be one of the most important issues to address during your
divorce. Your lawyer can help you understand how custody is determined

property, you may also have financial obligations to your spouse after
your divorce. This can include alimony, child support, or other payments.
Understanding your financial obligations can help you plan for your post-divorce life.
5. How Can I Protect My Interests During the Divorce Process? Divorce can
be emotionally and financially challenging, and it's important to
protect your interests throughout the process. Your lawyer can help you
understand what steps you can take to protect your assets and your future.
6. What Are My Grounds for Divorce? Every state has different grounds for
divorce, which include reasons such as irreconcilable differences, adultery,
and abandonment. Understanding what grounds you have for divorce will
help you determine how to proceed with the legal process.
7. How Long Can the Divorce Process Take? The length of the divorce process
can vary widely depending on your specific situation, including factors
such as whether you have children or complex assets to divide. Understanding
the timeline for your divorce can help you plan for the future.
