My Advice to Divorce Clients

Because so many of the family law cases I handle involve divorce, I’ve come to find there are two important pieces of wisdom that everyone struggling with their marriage should know:

  1. Unless you are in legitimate danger, do not call the cops on your spouse. Policemen are not marriage counselors. One of you will likely end up in jail, and you may regret making a phone call out of anger.
  2. If you’re having problems in your marriage, try resolving them through counseling first. Divorce should be a last resort, and you should not file suit unless you are serious.

If you have heeded this guidance and are confident that ending your marriage is the right decision, read on. In some cases, divorce is best for the family as a whole. After all, you do not want your children to witness relentless arguments and be subject to your own unhappiness. Divorce can be the fresh start you need to move forward and create a better life for both your children and yourself.

How I Handle Cases of Divorce  

My mission is simple: resolve the matter simply and fairly. While I understand that it can be extremely frustrating when the opposing party is uncooperative, it is generally better to remain cordial throughout the process. Because of this philosophy, I bill all divorce cases for a flat fee. To do otherwise would be a waste of your money. Let me explain…

During law school, my professor once displayed a cartoon cow on the overhead projector that simply said “divorce.” There was an angry wife pulling on one horn and an angry husband pulling on another. The lawyers, however, were milking the cow underneath. “That’s family law,” my professor said.

While encouraging a fight may increase my fees, it really only harms your family. Ultimately, there are only two things that matter in a divorce: your children and your possessions. Thus, my first course of action is to amicably address these concerns through mediation. Still, I am willing and able to proceed with litigation when necessary.
