What are my options when dealing with family law or divorce issues?

Each divorce or family law case presents unique and frequently complicated issues. While a divorcing spouse always has the right to pursue a case on their own, they do so with great peril unless they understand the law and their rights. Whether resolved by settlement or litigation, flexible thinking and sound, knowledgeable advice from an attorney should be your approach to addressing the issues in your case.

What should I expect to pay an attorney to represent me in a family law or divorce case?

It is particularly difficult to estimate the fees and costs associated with a divorce or family law case. The expense frequently depends on the willingness of the involved parties to work together for a solution. An attorney who is both knowledgeable of the law and sensitive to the cost of litigating these kinds of cases is invaluable.

Are there alternatives to a contested divorce that a lawyer can provide help with?

Yes. An experienced divorce and family law attorney can help mediate the disputed issues and facilitate a resolution without the expense of a traditional divorce. Similarly, an experienced divorce lawyer can provide the parties to a divorce with an "early neutral assessment" of their circumstances and how their case is likely to be resolved by the Court if the matter proceeds to a hearing. Such an assesment can be an inexpensive but invaluable tool in reaching a resolution of their case. Some attorneys will provide limited legal services, generally in the form of pleading preparation, to the parties in a divorce without their direct involvement in their divorce case.


Best Lawyer Around

"I had what most would consider a difficult divorce case due to circumstances and an extremely difficult spouse. Michael Grills was an absolute bull dog in dealing with my case start to finish and he remembered everything I told him.

My ex to this day lays down on the floor at the mention of "contacting my lawyer". And to be honest that's what he is, he is YOUR lawyer and will defend you as though you are his family and primary concern. Hopefully my days of needing a lawyer are limited but I sleep well at night knowing he's a phone call away."
