No one should go through a divorce without a divorce lawyer… especially if your spouse has one! Divorce is complicated and technical. It is full of potential pitfalls and land mines. If you don’t know what you are doing, you can end up making mistakes that will haunt you for years. Some mistakes you may never recover from.
That having been said, I have a confession.
A Different Kind of Divorce Lawyer
I have spent decades watching people tear each other apart in court. I have seen judges struggle to try to decide what is best for children whose parents care more about getting even with each other than about making sure their kids are okay. What’s more, I have watched expensive, high-powered lawyers spend hours arguing over who gets a $100 vacuum cleaner.
Our divorce system encourages people to fight. It pits husband against wife, and wife against husband. Children have no voice.
I decided to stop being part of the problem, and try to become part of the solution.
What I Do
I am now a divorce adviser, divorce coach, and a consultant. Although I am a divorce lawyer, the only new divorce cases I will take are Collaborative Divorce cases.
If you are looking for a divorce lawyer to battle through a contested divorce with you, I’m not the right lawyer for you.
If you live in Illinois and you want advice about how to get divorced amicably and intelligently, I can help you with that.
Or, if you are frustrated with how your divorce is going and want a second opinion, I can help you with that, too.
I can also help you figure out your best options if you still having problems with your ex after your divorce. If the option you choose includes fighting in court, I will give you a great referral to another divorce lawyer.
If you live anywhere in the world other than the state of Illinois, I can be your divorce coach. But I can not, and will not, give you legal advice.
The Bottom Line
No matter how you decide to go through your divorce, you shouldn’t do it alone.
