As unfortunate and challenging as divorce and child custody situations are to the parties involved, evidence today shows that these issues arise for almost half of the population.
If you have decided to initiate a divorce, you feel a certain custody situation is not justified, or you have found out you are a party to such proceedings, we are here to guide you through and minimize your burden. The stress that a divorce can bring on one’s life is sometimes overwhelming.
In either case, you can expect to go through the five stages of grief in response to the stress — denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and finally, acceptance — before you will find strength and peace to move forward with your situation. Let us help you through this process and let us take care of the details.
The emotional and sometimes physical toll of these situations can be daunting. We are here to be sure that your finances and other vital relationships will not also be affected unfairly.
A divorce is rarely an easy decision to make and never is the process easy on those involved.
However, the process might be a bit easier once Ohio Governor Kasich signs the Collaborative Family Law Act into practice. This would mandate a “streamlined” structure of voluntary divorce settlement conferences, attended by the respective family’s “professional divorce team” – lawyers, accountants, mental health professionals and anyone else. This way, a lot of cases will be finished before the need for a trial.
We at Matthew N. Miller, LLC are skilled negotiators who strive to save a great deal of time, stress, and money, so that the goals of fairness and justice are obtained without dragging out the process any longer than is necessary. As painful as the process of divorce could be, we strive to make it as painless as possible for you, so that you can move past this stage of your life. Often times, the situation should not be about “winning”, since the marital resolution “pie” can be expanded to meet the needs of the situation, while saving time and money.
