Separation and divorce is a significant time of change. During this tumultuous time, the divorcing parties are juggling multiple issues: the loss of a partner, minimizing the impact on the children, and the day to day logistics of financially and physically restructuring ones’ life. A team of experts can help you to move forward positively during this time.
Family Law Attorney: Why seek out a trained family law attorney? An attorney will help to protect your interests financially and legally. It is important to find a great fit. Further, an attorney trained in mediation and collaboration will specifically be able to help identity how to resolve disputes without resorting to high-conflict and high-cost litigation.
Counselor or Therapist: While a family law attorney will help you navigate the legal field, your therapist is best suited to helping you to process your feelings. Divorce and separation can be overwhelming or frightening. You may feel anger, resentment, grief, regret, or even a feeling of relief. A mental health provider will help identify coping mechanisms and aid you in using this time to establish positive patterns for the future.
Financial Planner: Navigating many client’s complex financial portfolios may also require the assistance of a trusted (and certified) financial planner. Your financial picture will likely change in the divorce process, so touching base with your planner will help add to your financial security through appropriate asset management.
When selecting your divorce team, it is best to consider your own personal goals, gather your documents and set up an interview to be sure that you have found the right fit for you. For a consultation, or recommendation contact Elise Buie Family Law Group, PLLC.
