Division of Property
Divorce can be a terrifying experience. You don’t have to go through it alone.
When you walked down the aisle, you knew it was forever. Nothing was ever going to get in your way. Nothing was ever going to come between you. You were aware of the statistics. You knew that 50% of marriages end in divorce. But you knew you would beat the odds. Your marriage would be happily ever after. Your marriage would last forever. Two kids, a dog, and home of your own. Watching your children and grandchildren grow and go off to college. Holding hands and going for walks well into your 70s, 80s, and 90s. Reminiscing about how it began.
HOW DID IT COME TO THIS?
This isn’t how it was supposed to be. Your hands are shaking – is it fear, is it anger, is it sadness? Maybe deep down you knew something was wrong, but still never thought it would come to this. Every couple has problems and your relationship wasn’t so bad that you couldn’t regain that same love you felt when you walked down the aisle. Even at its worst, your marriage was worth saving.
CAN IT REALLY BE OVER?
Surely there’s a way to make things right; to come back to that place where it all began. Surely it can’t really be over. Can you really be the only one in this marriage who wishes it would just work itself out…like it has so many times before. Can’t you still beat the odds? You know that there has to be something you can do to fix whatever is broken.
But here you are. Alone. Looking online for a divorce lawyer. You were never going to need a divorce lawyer. You were never going to get a divorce. Your children weren’t going to have divorced parents. Divorce wasn’t even an option. But here you are – scared, angry, embarrassed, sad, alone, hopeless.
WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN NOW?
You have so many questions:
- What will happen to the kids?
- What will people think?
- Where will you live during the divorce
- Where will you live after the divorce?
- Will your friends choose your spouse?
- How will you afford to pay all of the bills on your own?
- Will you lose everything you’ve worked for?
- How long will the divorce process take?
- Will you have to go to court?
- Will you lose your insurance?
- What about alimony?
- Do you need a divorce lawyer?
- How much does a divorce cost?
- How will you start over?
- Is there even any hope at all?
YOU ARE NOT ALONE
I know what you are going through, and I know your concerns. Ten years ago, on the heels of Hurricane Rita, I lost everything. It wasn’t because of the hurricane – the timing was just a coincidence. But I lost my home, my job, my family, my friends…I lost myself. A five year detour from the path on which I started had brought me to this place of hopelessness, and suddenly I realized I was not where I wanted to be. I was scared, I was lost, and I was alone.
I had no idea when my life had changed. Everything happened so slowly and gradually that I never even noticed that I was so far from where I was meant to be. I had nothing and I didn’t know how I was going to be able to regain my life. I didn’t know if I was ever going to be okay again. I had so many questions and not a single answer. It was the darkest place I’ve ever been…still the darkest place I can imagine.
I didn’t know what to do, and I didn’t know how to fix everything I had broken, but I knew that I needed a change. I knew that this was not what I wanted for my life. This was not what God intended my life to be. He had a plan, and I had gotten sidetracked, but His plan had not changed and I needed to get it back. I needed to get back onto the path that I had drifted away from, regardless of what that meant. No matter what I had to do to get my life back, I was going to do it.
It was not easy to find myself again inside the person I had become. It took years and a lot of work and focus. It took prayer and the power of God, but I overcame. I got back on the path on which I had begun. I fixed everything I had broken – in myself and my relationships – and completed my education. I married the woman of my dreams, started a beautiful family, and found my passion in helping others to come through their own darkness.
THERE IS HOPE
Divorce is a terrifying experience. Divorce is emotionally, spiritually, physically, and financially draining to everyone involved. Divorce may be the darkest time that you’ve ever encountered, and you shouldn’t go through it alone. I never would have found my way back to the path God intended for me without the support of some amazing people. People who knew what I was going through. People who knew how to come out from the darkness because they had experienced their own darkness.
I CAN HELP
I can guide you through the darkness. I can explain the steps that you must take to find your way back to your path. I can answer your questions and ease your mind. I can stand up for you when you’re not strong enough to stand up for yourself. I can ensure that your children, your finances, your property, and your sanity are protected. You shouldn’t have to go through this alone, and you don’t have to.
Your divorce and your family are unique, and you deserve personal attention, compassion, and understanding. My practice is limited to divorce, child custody, child support, alimony, and property division. I handle a limited number of cases, which allows me the time to get to know you as a person and not just as a file number. You don’t have to be scared. You don’t have to do this alone. Call me today and let me guide you through this darkness.
