Whether you are suddenly blindsided by the prospect of divorce or it has been a long time coming, leaving yourself vulnerable during the process is unwise. Preparation of both a personal and legal nature is essential to emerge from the divorce as whole a person as possible.
At McGuire Law Offices, we believe an educated client has a better chance of leaving a marriage with his or her rights and interests intact. As such, we want to inform you about some of the often unexpected aspects of getting a divorce.
It may be more difficult than you think: Even those who believe themselves to be knowledgeable and aware are often surprised at how emotionally hard it is to get a divorce.
It may take longer than you like: When disputes or conflict arise, it can delay the process of divorcing. This is where preparation is truly critical for you and for your spouse.
It may be fraught with obstacles. The many legal elements of divorce often act as roadblocks. Issues like property division and child custody or support can stop a divorce in its tracks, at least for a while.
It may steal away your privacy: Unfortunately, some divorces bring things to the spotlight that many people wish would remain secret. Prepare yourself ahead of time in case your personal life becomes public.
It is usually easier with support. Going it alone is a terrible idea. A solid support system can bolster you in times of despair and lift you up out of the darkness.
Many people do not think they need a lawyer when divorcing. However, advice and guidance from a professional can protect you and you children while helping you cope with the process. You can find more information about getting a divorce in Florida on our firm’s website.
