Divorce Survival Kit — Divorce Law Information

One out of every two marriages ends in divorce. Because of financial and time constraints, however many parties first find themselves in Family Court seeking an acknowledgment of Paternity, child support and custody.

Thus, it is very surprising how little we know about the problems associated with the break up of a marriage. Most readers would be surprised to find that, with two honest and skilled practitioners representing the respective parties, the majority of the divorce cases can be and most often are settled without a trial or court appearance, over the telephone, through correspondences between the parties, or in settlement conferences in one or the other of the attorneys’ offices.

Divorces can also be settled more rapidly if the Husband and Wife sit down and negotiate the terms of their settlement before seeking the legal counsel of an attorney. For those of you who have failed in an effort to communicate with your spouse or narrow down the issues of your divorce I hope that this article helps you to prepare for and understand the process you are about to undergo.
