Protecting Your Rights During Divorce

A divorce is something you don't want to take lightly. More than just a dissolution of the relationship you had with your spouse, it includes significant changes for your children, finances and emotional health. By working with an experienced divorce attorney, you can feel confident knowing you have someone looking out for you.

There's A Lot To Consider During Divorce

Many people feel overwhelmed when they begin divorce proceedings. From determining alimony and parenting plans to dividing assets and other property, there can be hundreds of decisions that require careful consideration. As your lawyer, I will attempt to keep everything clear, organized and moving smoothly. If your separation was especially painful or contentious, I can represent your interests during mediation or litigation to make sure no one takes advantage of you.

With years of experience handling family law matters, I understand that each couple's circumstances are different. Below is a list of common concerns I help many clients address:

  • Division of property, such as the family home or business
  • Parenting time or child custody and visitation schedules
  • Structuring alimony, child support payments and other separation agreements

Helping Residents Of St. Clair County Prepare For Life After Divorce

It's easy to get wrapped up in the moment during difficult transitional moments like divorce. Runaway emotions can blind you to the consequences of making rash decisions. That is why I advise my clients to focus on making intelligent choices that not only solve the immediate problem, but provide sustainable solutions well into the future.

Part of any divorce is preparing for life after the separation is finalized. As people adjust and children grow older, it's important to ensure that agreements made during the initial divorce proceedings account for future changes. As your lawyer, I will offer insight and advice to help you make the right decisions for you and your family.
