Making Divorce Easier

By Cairns Law Offices  Apr. 12, 2012 3:05p

No matter whom you are or where you live, divorce isn't easy on anybody. When couples and families are facing the prospect of divorce, there are so many factors that have to be considered all at one time. Issues such as child custody, visitation, alimony, property division assets and so much more have to be addressed in a fair and just manner. Regardless of the heated emotions involved, taking a sensitive and caring approach to all concerned can help achieve a positive outcome in divorce proceedings.

If you have children and are heading towards divorce, important decisions will have to be made between you and your spouse regarding primary physical custody, visitation and child support payments. In addition to custody and visitation, legal custody will have to be addressed. Legal custody gives a parent the legal authority to make important decisions about the child's life such as what religion they are raised in, which doctor they see and what extra-curricular activities they are involved in.

When couples are getting a divorce, it is always best for them to hire a Pennsylvania family law lawyer to represent their interests. Even in the most amicable divorces, it is wise to have a professional by your side; to make sure that your divorce is handled in a fair fashion.

Aside from child custody and support matters, an attorney will assist you with asset and property division. This is especially important in high net worth divorce cases, where real estate, retirement accounts, business holdings and other assets are involved.

Collaborative Law and Mediation

If you are getting a non-contested divorce, you may want to consider working together with your spouse to achieve the best possible outcome through Collaborative Law and Mediation. Collaborative Law and Mediation are used as a highly effective tool when both parties can work out their differences between their attorneys, without having to step foot inside a court room. Collaborative Law and Mediation are more cost effective, less time consuming and aim towards a win/win situation in the end.
