Ending a marriage can be tough. That’s because there often is a lot going on, including complicated financial issues like alimony, child support, and equitable distribution in NC.
It’s not just about money. Getting divorced regularly involves at least some level of hard feelings, anger, resentment, and a flood of emotions. That’s entirely normal and understandable.
What happens if a marriage falls apart, but you still care for your spouse? You may not want to be married anymore, but you also don’t want to fight about everything.
There can be an easier way to clear the air, to end a bad relationship, and go your separate ways, without endless litigation, acrimony, and the financial burdens that entails.
“It may seem odd to hear that from an attorney who has made his bones duking it out in court. If you’re truly able to set aside your emotions, deciding to view the divorce as a business trip, collaborative law may be the way to go.”
– Bill Powers, Collaborative Law Attorney
The truth is, litigation is something courtroom lawyers actually enjoy. At least that’s true at our law firm. Our motto is: Si vis pacem, para bellum
Courtroom advocacy and arguing cases in court fulfills our competitive nature. It also is intellectually stimulating, rewarding work for an attorney.
It also isn’t necessarily in your best interests.
A collaborative divorce is something you should at least consider. Divorce lawyers in Charlotte enjoy being in the courtroom. Chances are, you won’t.
