In an ideal world, divorce litigation would be unnecessary. The parties involved in the divorce would be able to reach a settlement agreement as a result of civil negotiations and/or through mediation. However, this is not always how things work out. Sometimes litigation is necessary, and the only way to bring the divorce process to a close. If you are facing litigation in an upcoming family law matter, Brodsky, Renehan, Pearlstein & Bouquet’s attorney are experienced and willing to work to represent your best interests.
A Complicated Task
When two people decide to separate, there is often a lot to untangle. In addition to the emotional challenges that come with divorce, simply pulling two lives apart from a financial perspective can be difficult. Of course, this gets only more difficult when children are in the picture. Between child custody issues and financial matters, including but not limited to alimony, child support and the division of property, it is easy to see why many couples are unable to come to a settlement on their own.
Thinking Big Picture
Sometimes the stress of going through a divorce makes a client inclined to accept a settlement offer which is not in his or her best interest just to get the process over with. Don’t make that mistake. If you can force yourself to think about the big picture rather than just the short-term, you will see that there is a lot left to fight for. If you take an unfair settlement now, you will likely regret it later.
