Our mission is to provide uncompromised representation in court, around the settlement table, and at home. I have been a family law attorney for almost 20 years. I have witnessed the complete destruction caused by litigants and attorneys in family court. Divorce is NOT a zero-sum game. Nobody wins. Even if you “win” one hearing or trial, the bitterness and fighting typically continues…until one or both sides run out of money. Think I am exaggerating? I encourage you to read this article which painstakingly chronicles what a true divorce looks like.
Many people enter a divorce with the false assumption that the courts will PUNISH the wrong-doer. Unfortunately, the family courts cannot award revenge. Judges are confined to the law. The supported spouse with less income receives support, even if he/she is a despicable cheater and liar. Even if the divorce is not your fault, you may still have to share custody. The wrongdoer still has a right to one-half of all community property. It’s completely understandable to feel angry, frustrated, and helpless when you only end up with 50% of what you previously had together. After all, you deserve 200%!
Unfortunately, there are lawyers out there who prey off your anger and fear, promising you grandiose results that will never materialize. Be careful.
