There's no way to verbally express all the difficulties that come with a divorce. The pain can be debilitating. The anxiety and fear can make it difficult to think straight.
There are no easy answers to the challenges of divorce. If you have questions about the best way to protect your children, your assets and your sanity, talk to an experienced attorney you trust. Lawyers with Harris Cook, LLP, have been a trusted source of family law representation for decades.
Four Things You Can Do
If you are on the verge of a divorce or you are anticipating the end of your marriage, we recommend four basics:
- Think about your priorities. Whether you are concerned about your kids' well-being, your property, support payments, your career or all of the above, consider what is most important to you as you enter the divorce process.
- Understand that you have choices. Contrary to popular opinion and friendly advice, there is more than one way to handle a divorce. Make sure you learn about different approaches to divorce.
- Get the legal advice you need. Evaluate your options and get your questions answered before you do anything. Get the help of a lawyer who will take the time to get to know you and the specifics of your situation.
- Take care of yourself. It is important to make sure you look out for your own needs and stay healthy, especially if you have children. Get the support you need through reliable friends, family members, your church, counselors or other means.
Managing partner David Cook concentrates much of his practice on divorce cases, including complex and high-asset divorce cases. He is board-certified in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
