Outcome

After the divorce, you and your ex-spouse will have two separate households. You will have to maintain those two homes on the money with which you maintained one earlier. “Two” cannot live as cheaply as “one,” especially when “two” are two separate households.

Furthermore, if your ex-spouse has been a jerk all of his or her life, it is very unlikely that going through a divorce will make him or her less of a jerk. A drunken wastrel will probably continue to be a drunken wastrel, and nothing the court nor I can do will be likely to cure the problem. After the divorce, you will be separated; but to the extent that you are still tied together by visitation, child support, alimony, or debt payments, you will still have to deal with the problems together.

If your ex-spouse-to-be is garbage, then no matter how hard we try or how well we succeed in court, your ex-spouse-to-be will probably still be garbage.

Reviews from People Who Have Been There

  • Nick really does care about the best interest of his clients.

    “I have used Nick on multiple Family Law situations. He helped me during my divorce and child custody years ago and I could not ask for better. He knows the law and is excellent in the courtroom. Nick really does care about the best interest of his clients. I hired Nick a second time this year dealing with a child relocation case. Again he is a professional with family law. He will fight to the very end and not let anything slip through the cracks. He was able to get me everything I wanted and more. If you are in the unfortunate position to need a family lawyer do yourself a favor hire this man, there is no one else I would trust to handle child custody, relocation and divorce! Period!”
