Divorce is one of the most difficult experiences a person can go through. It is emotional and the process can have an unknown outcome. It also can be very expensive if not planned correctly. Having a divorce lawyer who understands this is critical to emerging from a divorce without major damage to your psyche, children and finances.

Divorce Planning is Important
Divorce is no different from other things in life: The more you plan, the more smoothly things will go. At Allen & Weaver, P.C., we encourage clients to think about divorce within the larger context of their lives. Some people wait until their children are in college. Should you? Some couples have not identified their goals in the divorce. What kind of child custody arrangement do they want? Should spousal support be paid? How will you divide the marital property ? The more questions you can answer even before you visit a lawyer, the easier it will be.
Of course, it is hard for most people to be organized when they are blindsided by a request for a divorce or find they can no longer live in the marriage. Attorney Katherine Allen helps clients identify the questions they should answer even before formal proceedings begin. If you can answer basic questions such as those related to the children’s living situations, you will have taken important steps toward an easier divorce. Attorney Weaver can help you.
She can also help you identify areas where some strategy on your part can help For example, if you are hoping to obtain more than the usual amount of visitation, you might think about the separation period when temporary orders are in force. This will give you a better chance of making the case that you should continue what you started.
It’s About the Children
Some people are eager to take revenge on a spouse they believed has wronged them. They may use their children as weapons in the effort to limit visitation. They may try to hide assets or income to limit the amount they are need to pay in child support. What they need to ask themselves is not how much something will cost them, but how much it will cost their children. Will the kids not have music lessons or go to summer camp because parents spent too much money on legal fees fighting each other? Katherine Allen helps parents work through their rage to get to a more positive place – a place that holds the long-term well-being of the children paramount. To get to such a place we employ mediation and other strategies that allow people to put their children ahead of their short-term anger.
