Divorce Lawyer Daytona
As a practiced family law attorney, Matt Thompson knows that the circumstances of family law can be both liberating and heartbreaking. If you’re contemplating filing for divorce, have had divorce papers filed against you, or have made the decision to file and need competent legal representation to see your case through, Thompson Law, P.A. can help.
If there’s one thing Matt Thompson has learned from practicing family law, it’s that even when both parties have decided they’ll be happier apart, divorce is rarely easy on anyone. Both spouses may agree on the concept of divorce in principle, but once you start working out the details: alimony, distribution of assets, child custody arrangements – an amicable divorce has the possibility to turn tense, at best and at worse, lead to a years-long contentious court battle.An Experienced Divorce Lawyer Can Ease the Strain of Your Divorce Process
Though your divorce lawyer works for you, a great attorney will also be honest with you when the course of action you want may not be what’s best for you in the long run. If you’re looking for a quick and amicable divorce proceeding, your lawyer should respect that – but not at the expense of your future financial stability. It is almost never a good idea to say “give my spouse whatever they ask for. I just want this over with.” You will most certainly regret that decision when the smoke has cleared, and a good lawyer will caution you against making it.
An attorney looking out for your best interests will also not create contention where there is none simply for the purpose of padding their pocket. Yes, contentious divorces usually result in more billable hours, but a good divorce lawyer looks out for their client, not their wallet. If you and your spouse both want an amicable divorce and there are no underlying issues that should prevent that, your attorney should respect that decision and do whatever he or she can to ensure that your interests are protected.Trust Thompson Law, P.A. to Bring Honesty and Experience to the Table
Almost without a doubt, divorce will leave you feeling – at least temporarily – isolated, emotionally raw, and exhausted. Sound familiar? We don’t always make our best decisions when faced with the emotional and physical strain such as that brought on by separation or divorce. Be honest with your lawyer about what you want out of your divorce case, and let them do the legwork. This may include being the voice of reason when you’re letting your emotions get the better of you. That’s why it’s important that you trust your lawyer completely – so you know that even when they tell you something you don’t want to hear, it’s because they have your best interest in mind.
