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. For example, what should you expect from your divorce? If your marriage is near its end, you may have expectations about a legal resolution, but are your ideas and the reality of divorce the same? The answer is often no, simply because the divorce process is more complex than most people realize.
At Halleck Law Office, you will find an understanding of the challenges that accompany family law issues, which is why attorney Peter T. Halleck works so hard to help clients set realistic expectations for their divorces and related matters.
Why Is The Outcome Of Divorce So Difficult To Determine?
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 traditional divorces. An outcome can be difficult to determine for several reasons, including the following:
- You and your spouse may have very different opinions of what is fair and right regarding your children, assets and debts.
- Ohio is an equitable distribution state. This is often not the same as an equal division of assets.

While he cannot guarantee any outcome, he can prepare you for potentialities, so you will not find yourself facing the unexpected during the process.
