Family Law Attorneys Fight for Families

Many parents fail to realize that they are still co-parents even after a divorce. This means no matter what their feelings are toward each other, their goals should always be geared toward the best interests of their children. I am an attorney practicing family law, and I see parents every day who have forgotten that children should always come first. I hope that this blog will remind people that kids can be terribly hurt when their parents get divorced and that it is up to the adults in their lives to provide a secure foundation where they can feel safe and know that they are cared for. Children are often innocent victims of divorce. Learn how to protect your kids.

Contested Divorce? Here's 2 Simple Steps To Handling It With Ease

Contested divorces are one of the worst kind. Not only are you having to deal with the pain of a divorce in the first place, but you also have to deal with a spouse who is fighting you every step of the way. If you are in the middle of a contested divorce case, you know how stressful and overwhelming it can be. Instead of being stressed out and letting the other party get the best of you, try implementing the following tips into your life to handle your situation with dignity and grace.

Attempt to settle if at all possible.

If you think there is any way possible to be able to settle your divorce case, by all means do it. You can take the terms of the settlement to your attorney to review. They will then present the offer to the other party for review. The other party's attorney has the option of either accepting the agreement on behalf of the spouse or sending back a counter offer. If they do end up sending back a counter offer, the ball is in your court at that point. If you don't like it, you can decline or send another counter offer back. It's up to you how long you want to keep going back and forth on the whole deal. In the end, it is far better to try and come to a settlement than it is to continue battling everything out in court.

Only speak when it is your turn to do so.

Oftentimes, individuals end up blowing up on the other party in court. Whether it be because the other person is lying or because they are just plain irritated with them, you don't want to do this. Avoid yelling or speaking over the other party or the judge. Wait until you are asked a question. Then, state your peace. Don't stoop to the levels of the other party. The judge can see that for themselves. You just need to go into court with a cool and calm attitude and let the judge observe how things are between the two of you. Be truthful in everything you are asked. Allow the court to handle the outbursts. Just make sure you aren't the one making them.

By following the tips above, you can get through your divorce case and rise above all of the insanity and stress of the situation. Contact a divorce lawyer for more help.
