Divorce Law and Family Law Resources
Whether you have a long or short marriage, kids or not, choosing the right divorce process for your family at the start is critical. While you can only control half of the process, there are steps you can take to make sure you continue to move forward while protecting your best interests.
The reality is that although about half of marriages end in divorce, no one wants to think they will be part of that 50% when they do get married. However, a prenuptial agreement can serve as insurance in case the unexpected occurs. Divorces with prenuptial agreements are generally faster and significantly less expensive than divorces with no prenuptial agreement.
Child Custody and Child Support
Nothing is more important than protecting your children. That’s why in every case, the first issues that should be addressed are the child-related issues. If parents can be on the same page with regard to parenting time and decision-making, their children will have the greatest chance of success.
