Unquestionably, deciding whether to divorce or not is a difficult life changing decision to make. Before you take any action, you need to understand your options, and that should start with consulting a divorce attorney. By discussing the specifics with a lawyer, you can become educated about your rights and responsibilities. An attorney that practices in the area of family law can also stop you from making a mistake that could hurt your case.

During a divorce, unless you’re able to resolve your differences amicably with your spouse, the Court can and ultimately will make determinations including but not limited to decisions as to alimony, child custody, child support, parenting time, allocation of college costs, equitable distribution of all marital assets and debts, and allocation of counsel fees and costs.
