If you are considering divorce, or if your spouse has already served you divorce papers, you are under emotional stress. Many people don’t consider that their marriage might one day end in divorce, and when a person realizes their marriage is beyond repair, it is often a very stressful experience no matter how good or bad the marriage was. All marriages are an enormous emotional and financial investment which makes dissolving a marriage emotionally difficult, and often contentious.

Divorcing couples must address issues such as child custody, visitation, child support, spousal support, and property and debt division. While some couples can agree amicably on these areas, others will have a significant amount of trouble coming to terms on one or more of these core issues.
