Williamsville, NY Divorce Attorney
No matter who you are, divorce hits hard. Late nights spent lying awake wondering what you could have done differently. Stress eating at your stomach - you're not sure how things are going to turn out, if you can afford it, what will happen to the kids, how far you might sink in debt. Having an experienced divorce lawyer on your side can clear the muddy waters. At Pusatier Sherman Abbott & Sugarman, LLP, we specialize in helping residents of Williamsville, NY, get through their divorce and land back on their feet. The first thing you must do in any divorce? Decide between litigation and mediation.
If the divorce is amicable, or you and your spouse only have a few major assets to divide, you may want to hire a divorce attorney for mediation. When you mediate, the mediator will evaluate both sides and come up with several mutually beneficial options. Whether you take any of those options will be up to you. In our experience, divorces that end in mediation are resolved much faster, and with less expense. It's also beneficial for the mental health of everyone involved - particularly children, who can really struggle during their parent's divorce proceedings.
Divorce litigation is for couples who are unable to agree on how to divide assets, child custody, or alimony. In litigation, both sides will need to be represented by their own divorce attorney. The two lawyers will meet and both attempt to get the best arrangement for their client - though there will undoubtedly be some compromise. However, if neither side is willing to budge, litigation will likely end up in front of a judge. Going to court can be an incredibly difficult process, which is why it's imperative you have a divorce lawyer on your side if things get this far.
