Divorces are traumatic experiences for some men and women. This is especially true for people who didn't realize that the divorce was going to be filed. In these cases, the shock of the filing and the scramble to prepare can seem overwhelming. We can help you to work through the legal aspects of your case to determine what you need to land in the best position possible.
An unexpected divorce comes with a lot of unknowns. When you know that the divorce is coming, you have time to plan for it. You are able to make living arrangements and figure out how you can support yourself solely on your income. A surprise divorce doesn't give you these opportunities.
While it might seem like you will be one step behind your ex throughout the case, this doesn't have to be the case. It will take some work but we can help you catch up so that you are able to work on keeping your best interests at heart.
We understand that you might not feel prepared to deal with things like child custody or property division. Still, these are necessary components for a divorce. You have to try to get these matters resolved so that you can get the divorce finalized.
Even when a divorce comes as a surprise, you shouldn't let it consume you. If you know that your marriage is definitely over, now is the time for you to start getting ready to live a single life. Set your goals and make a plan now so that you can move forward with your life.
