This will likely be one of the most emotionally draining times of your life and you will need help. My approach to practicing law is to work with you and the other party to reach an amicable agreement while, to the greatest extent possible, still allowing you to have an amicable relationship with the other party. Cooperation is key and something I strive to obtain from the other party. However, if an agreement cannot be reached, I will vigorously fight for you in and out of court.
