Lubbock, Amarillo, Midland, Odessa & Abilene TX Divorce Attorney
No matter how you look at it, the process of getting a divorce is a highly emotional and difficult process. I am always amazed as a practitioner, how couples who once viewed each other with respect or even reverence can suddenly “turn on a dime” and declare war against their spouse with every resource available to them. Typically, reasonable communication has long since vanished and the dialogue is driven be expletives and emotion. This is particularly unfortunate when children are involved. Clients expect that they will end up rapidly in Lubbock, Amarillo, or Midland Divorce Court – and that is typically the case. It certainly can become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Divorce & Family Law Services
The Moster Law Firm is prepared to aggressively represent our clients in divorce court. We will vigorously fight for our clients and use every litigation tool available to obtain a just result. That said, it is critical that the attorney and client first exhaust any possibility to achieve an amicable resolution. The two main reasons which drive this advice are (1) emotional cost and (2) financial cost.
Emotional Cost of Divorce
Regardless of who is literally the culprit, the emotional cost to our clients is enormous. By that, I am referring to the raw emotions which are triggered in any divorce whether your spouse is the most notorious and evil scoundrel or not. Our clients will experience emotional ups and downs in the divorce process and there is no way to avoid that in a contested situation. If a divorce or family lawyer in Lubbock, Amarillo, or Midland tells you otherwise, head for the nearest exit door! If you are not ready to face the expected turbulence of a divorce battle, better to consider other options which may be available. If not, put on your seat belts, and get ready for battle in the divorce courts.
Financial Cost of Divorce
A contested divorce can end up being expensive for both parties. Once again, if your divorce or family lawyer tells you otherwise, head for the nearest exit door. The court filings and hearings required in a divorce proceeding are typically labor intensive and that can add to attorney’s fees. The best service a prospective divorce or family lawyer can offer you is to be very specific as to the legal fees and costs which may be involved in your matter. I always provide my clients with two estimates – one based on best case scenario and the other, the worst case scenario. If you are not financially equipped to shoulder the financial obligations of the process, better to consider other options before you start down that slippery slope.
Strategy – Strategy – Strategy
Clients can often miscalculate the litigation value of evidence which they have compiled on their soon to be ex-spouse. An experienced divorce and family law attorney can provide you with an assessment as to the quality of your ammunition and whether it will hold up in court. Although the divorce process can be complex, our approach is to provide the client with our case strategy before the first shots ring out. Given the emotional and financial stakes, the clients must see the forest for the trees.
Collaborative Options in Divorce
In a situation where both sides are willing to collaborate on arriving at an amicable resolution, the costs will be substantially less for both parties if the divorce can be worked out by agreement. Given the high stakes, our advice is to retain an experienced divorce lawyer to assist you in the process and ensure that your rights are protected. Of course, a collaborative solution is not always possible. However, it is incumbent upon an experienced divorce and family law attorney in to initially explore a collaborative option before suiting up for battle.
