Any legal disagreement can be stressful, but none are more burdensome on the heart and mind than family law matters, especially divorce.
Absolute necessities in a family law setting include a thorough knowledge of the law, legal procedures, idiosyncrasies of the courts, and the many out-of-court options available to reduce stress, expense, and the time to resolve all disputed issues.
Cases involving minor children can be heart-wrenching and emotionally exhausting for both parents and children. Great care must be taken to maximize cooperation between the parents to continue to raise their children successfully, rather than use them as pawns in a power struggle.
Division of family owned businesses are often a substantial issue, and must be deftly handled to make sure the business survives, and to ensure that any court ordered division or buy-out of the business by one party is fair and equitable.
