Going through a divorce and/or custody battle can be one of the most challenging and stressful times in a person’s life. It’s important to select an attorney who not only knows the law, but also has your well-being in mind so that stress is kept to a minimum. While there are times it is necessary to litigate, it is not always the solution. Mediation and settlement are both avenues that are important to explore and consider. When parties make good faith efforts to settle issues, they are usually happier and find greater peace during and after their case is completed.
