Getting Divorced

Choosing a divorce lawyer is an important decision. You want to make sure you are comfortable talking with your attorney about your finances and personal matters, and that he or she is interested in your story, not just your money.

It's important to have a lawyer who keeps you up to date on the latest developments in your case, who is available when you have questions and who gives you candid legal advice. It's also important that you have the help of someone who is prepared for whatever direction your divorce will take, whether it's resolved through mediation or courtroom litigation.

I know that when clients take on Focht Law Firm to represent them in a divorce, they are making decisions that could affect the rest of their lives. It's important to me that I earn that trust.

Different Strategies For Different Types Of Divorce

Often, a married couple decides on getting a divorce simply because the spouses have grown apart. Perhaps they have children and want to make sure they can still cooperate in the future on important matters related to child care. When one of my clients is in this situation, I protect his or her interests and guide him or her through the legal process of ending a marriage.

Even when you're going through a relatively peaceful divorce, it can help to have an experienced professional let you know that everything is going to be OK.

Other divorces are much more emotionally difficult. Some divorce clients are angry, some are sad and some are frightened. Many are experiencing a mix of emotions. If you are in a more difficult divorce, you may need a different kind of legal help. You need someone who's willing to go to court to fight for your interests, even if you don't feel strong enough to stand up for yourself.
