What Does a Good Divorce Look Like?
Successfully Navigating Your Divorce
You’re going to find that most good divorce lawyers have either been divorced or have been affected by divorce. Some of our attorneys' parents were divorced when they were young. Initially, some of our family members were appalled at the notion that we were going to be doing divorce.
The answer to them was, “Well, I know what a bad divorce looks like, so my goal is to help do it differently. To get through it.” One thing we promise all our clients is no matter what, we’ll get them through it. At the end of every case, we tell them we hope we never see them again.
That’s probably the best thing you can say to a client as a divorce attorney:
“Hopefully you’re never going to walk back through the door.”
One of the things we pride ourselves on is the divorce agreement. If you’re able to resolve your case through resolution, the end result is a divorce agreement. You’ll see some divorce agreements that are 5, 6 pages long. Our average divorce agreement is about 40 pages. Why? Because it’s going to cover everything. After almost 18 years, you’ll learn what should be there and what shouldn’t be there, and a well-written divorce agreement avoids problems down the road.
