A Divorce Attorney is a person in a highly specialized field to help hurting couples divorce their spouses as quickly, easily and inexpensively as possible. They spend at least seven years in school in the United States and also in the United Kingdom. By the time they’re helping you, they’re experienced professionals ready to tackle the many tasks you need done as you and your spouse each go through the emotionally difficult time of a divorce.
Divorce attorneys help you with three major tasks: (1) Discovery, (2) settlement (or trial) and (3) miscellaneous.
In Discovery, a Divorce attorney thoroughly explores major details of your two lives, including your finances, your insurance, your business(es), and your jointly and separately held real estate. He needs to know as much as possible, including what your spouse may be trying to hide from you and him. He also assists with your trial preparations or settlement outside of court. You might be having some trouble thinking clearly as you go through an emotionally difficult time, and so he thinks for you and helps you along every step of the way. Lastly, your divorce lawyer assists you with everything else, including child custody, and whatever else you may need.
