Once you stop looking at your divorce as an argument to win, you move closer to a resolution and you can start to heal. While other lawyers may use their ability to argue as a marketing tool, we believe it is really just a scare tactic that inaccurately conveys that if you don’t have the loudest lawyer, you will lose it all. At Bauer Law Group, we argue that this is harmful to YOUR family. Here’s why…
When it comes to custody parents should be on the same team…TEAM CHILDREN. Dividing up parenting time can be extremely difficult and taxing on a family. Both parties feel that they are losing out on precious time with their children. As hard as it is to shift your thinking from us v. them, when you do so, you can start thinking about what is best for YOUR children. Showing the children that both of their parents still love them and will continue to be an ever present person in their lives, despite the changing family dynamic, leaves both sides feeling satisfied and the children relieved.
This shift in thinking does not stop at creating parenting plans. When you discuss finances ask yourself, how we can work this division so that both parties are able to move forward with their lives while still being able to support themselves and their children? The old adage of “take him for all his has” is antiquated and not realistic. At Bauer Law Group, we want our clients to be educated in the process and have expectations grounded in reality. Any attorney can promise you the sun, the moon, and the stars, but setting unreasonable expectations is unfair to your entire family because it is an expensive game and most often, a disappointing loss for everyone.
When researching the right attorney for your case there are many factors to consider. If you’re hoping to come to an amicable resolution for all involved, it is imperative that you hire an attorney that shares your vision. Not all attorneys are the same. It is important to interview attorneys and find the right fit. This is a stressful time in your life filled with plenty of unknowns and your attorney must be someone you trust and whom you believe has your best interest at heart. You must feel comfortable about being completely honest with them. Finding an attorney that advocates problem solving will serve you well in the long run, as it will likely save time, stress, anxiety and resources. Your family and your financial resources should not be viewed as a battle to be won, but as a complex problem that requires the right skill set to solve.
Ending a marriage may be one of the hardest times of your life. At Bauer Law Group, we strive to guide you through the rough waters equipped with knowledge and choices so that YOU can define what your future looks like.
