Divorces can be devastating, deeply emotional experiences. The decision to end a marriage can be extremely difficult, especially when there are children involved. While most us know people who have gotten divorced, you might be surprised at just how common it is:
“In America, there is one divorce approximately every 36 seconds,” reports McKinley Irvin Family Law Firm. “That’s nearly 2,400 divorces per day, 16,800 divorces per week and 876,000 divorces a year.”
How can a Nashville family law attorney help you settle your divorce? Divorces are often extremely complicated matters. Both parties want fair treatment, and have certain expectations as to what belongs to them. While separating bank accounts, property, stock portfolios can be challenging, agreeing on child custody and alimony can be a serious, bitter matter. Our Nashville divorce attorneys are there to act on the behalf of the client to deliver a fair settlement, where what is valued most is protected. In an article published by Huffington Post, entitled “5 Reasons That You Need a Divorce Lawyer,” writer David Centeno perfectly captures why it is important to hire an attorney to settle your divorce:
“An experienced attorney can help a person to make certain to receive everything that he or she deserves during a divorce,” David writes in the article. “State laws do not necessarily support an even split of assets depending on the couple’s situation. In many cases, a spouse is even entitled to retirement or other income that the other spouse will receive in the future. If your marriage has any complicated issues to settle, an attorney can be an invaluable resource. For example, if there is child custody and support issues, substantial income, debts, assets or future assets (an inheritance, etc.), then you should hire an attorney to protect your interests in a divorce.”
Lisa Webb and Paul Moser are two of Nashville’s most respected divorce attorneys. They each have outstanding reputations because of their ability to be sensitive to the client’s needs, while also delivering a fair settlement. Lisa and Paul also are affordable, have an in-depth knowledge of the local courts and local law and possess the willingness to fight that you will need if you expect a good outcome.
“It’s an honor to be able to fight on behalf of a client at a time when they desperately need us,” Lisa says. “We all want to protect what we love, especially when it comes to our children and our financial security. I have helped dozens of people reach a desired outcome in their settlements, because I make sure that my clients are treated fairly and can feel confident about beginning their next chapter.”
