Divorce can be incredibly complicated — emotionally, financially and legally. It is normal to have many questions about how to proceed and what to expect.
Before and during a divorce, it is common (and generally healthy) to seek the support of close friends, family members, counselors and religious leaders. However, it can be a mistake to try to figure out tough legal issues without an experienced lawyer on your side. If you are facing difficult choices that will impact your future, get the guidance you need — from a reliable law firm you trust.
