[07/06/21] We’ve all heard of the stereotypical divorce attorney- slimy and after his money, no matter the cost. Thankfully, most are simply hard working men and women who spend their days working in a field that has more than its fair share of emotional and physical stresses while trying to help their clients.

[06/15/21] Divorce risks increase when the annual marital income is too low, if a low education level is involved, if there is a lack of religion, if one of the parties is a child from a home involving divorce, and if the couple married at a young age. Also, married couples who lived together before they married experience a higher likelihood of being divorced later.

The man pushed for the divorce after finding love letters his wife had written in the 1940s.

[04/22/21] Did you know that in many states you are entitled to 50% of all marital property in the case of a divorce? It's true! That means you may very well have options you weren’t thinking you'd have. A great divorce attorney can help you sort those rights out.
[04/20/21] Following the filing of typical divorce proceeding paperwork—the complaint, the summons for divorce, and the responsive motions—an uncontested divorce will proceed with settlement discussion with no trial or hearing or other judicial involvement.

[04/15/21] There is actually quite a bit of paperwork involved in filing for divorce, which is why hiring an attorney to help you through the process will always be your best bet.
