Are Family Law Problems Keeping You Awake At Night?

If you are in the midst of a family law problem, whether a divorce or a child custody battle, you may be struggling to think of anything else. At Halleck Law Office, we understand the challenges that accompany family law issues, which is why our attorney, Peter T. "Peter T." Halleck, works so hard to help our clients set realistic expectations for their divorces and related matters.

What Should You Expect From Your Divorce?

If your marriage is near its end, you may have an idea of what to expect in a divorce, but is your idea of divorce and the reality of divorce the same? For most of our clients, the answer is no, simply because the divorce process is more complex than most realize.

For example, depending on whether you and your spouse can agree on all matters related to your divorce, the process can be simple or complicated. Those spouses who can agree on every aspect of their separation can file for a no-fault dissolution of marriage. Unfortunately, because so many matters must be agreed upon, including parental rights, child support, alimony, property division and more, few couples are able to avoid divorces.

Why Is The Outcome Of Divorce So Difficult To Determine?

Most of our firm's clients want to know what the outcomes of their divorces will be. Unfortunately, an outcome is difficult to determine for several reasons. First, two people are involved, and you and your spouse may have very different opinions of what is fair when it comes to children, assets and debts. Second, Ohio is an equitable distribution state, which means that if a judge has to decide about property division on your behalf, he or she aims for equitable, which is simply not the same as equal.

During your discussion with our lawyer, he can help you set general realistic expectations based on more than 40 years of practicing law in Ohio. While he cannot guarantee any outcome, he can prepare you for potentialities, so you will not find yourself facing the unexpected during the process.
