Starting the Divorce Process

When you make the decision to divorce you have many aspects of life to manage. As we start to the process with you, we help you get organized and sort things out. While divorce can be scary it can also be a time of great transformation as you start to build a new life for yourself. We know there are times of uncertainty but help you navigate through those so you do not get overwhelmed.

When you look at divorce it can be broken down into three areas, the legal, the financial and the emotional. These areas are as separate as they are interdependent on one another. When starting the divorce process here in Bucks and Montgomery Counties in PA, here are the basic considerations to start to take care of to make the process as easy as it can be.

Legal: The divorce process requires a series of legal steps. Documents must be initially filed with the court, negotiations and final decisions made, and many deadlines followed. The entire process has a flow that is adjusted based on your circumstances, but still must remain within the standard procedures. We take care of each part for you making sure to fiercely negotiate on your behalf so your legal rights are protected.

Financial: Having a clear financial picture of your assets and debts is critical for moving through your divorce. This gives you a starting point to know where you stand as a couple, but then also look at where you want to be after your divorce. If you are not the primary breadwinner in your family or you do not directly manage your finances we can help obtain the necessary documentation.

Emotional: No matter the reason for the divorce, you are going to have some healing to do. Many divorcing individuals explain that divorce is a like a death. It does not even matter the reason for the divorce - you may have been left by your spouse, not wanting the divorce, or leaving because you have been unhappy - you will still need to go through period to heal and then start to move forward.

As we walk with you through the process of divorce we make sure that all aspects of these three issues are covered and their interconnecting parts remain stable and in check. We encourage you to keep a close eye on your children and look to protect their interests and well being through the process.
