When Times Are Tough, Family Lawyers You Can Depend On
Facing divorce or another family law issue is tough. Does this sound like you? You’re frustrated, angry or confused. You face the uncertain prospect of what the future holds for your relationship with your children. You wonder how this will affect you financially. You’re concerned about the talk that will take place about you around the water cooler at work or among your circle of friends and family.
Add to these feelings the anger you may feel toward your spouse or the other parent; the bitterness that replaced the once unconditional love that existed between you. The feeling of betrayal that now stays with you from the time you wake up in the morning until the time you go to bed at night. This confusion, anger and frustration can lead to poor decision-making during a time when every decision can have a huge impact on your future and the future of your relationship with your children. You are not alone if you have experienced these feelings or if you want to protect yourself from these experiences.
