Even under the best of circumstances

divorce is a difficult issue. One thing to understand, however, is that divorce is not the end of the world. It is simply a legal dissolution of a marriage which, despite best intentions, did not turn out well.

Divorcing spouses most often differ on one or more of the following issues: property division, child custody, child support, visitation, and family pets. You may be concerned for one or all of these aspects of your life. We can help you protect your family and assets.

Almost anyone will tell you that divorcing parents and their children are better off having an agreed divorce. An "agreed divorce" is one in which the parties resolve all their differences "out of court" and ask the court to approve the terms of their agreement. Agreed divorces benefit everyone by reducing the bitterness that may exist between two parties. Nevertheless, it is always best to be well prepared with legal representation. Of course, the court will hear any contested case and settle all disputed issues; however, each party to a lawsuit should carefully consider if a compromise is possible prior to asking for a trial.

Divorce can be a difficult and frustrating time. Be assured that The Charles Brown Law Firm can provide excellent legal counseling and assets management throughout your divorce.
