My approach as an attorney is to always empathize with a client while also using my experience as a divorce lawyer to work towards a favorable outcome in his or her case. Regardless of the particulars of a specific case, my goal is to ensure that each spouse moves forward with dignity and grace after the proceeding has concluded. I believe everyone is entitled to a fair and equitable divorce where they feel heard and their primary needs are met. In my mind, one of the biggest obstacles for these divorcing individuals is a lack of access to professional, easy to understand information about how divorces work in Minnesota and across the United States. That’s why I’ve been eager for the opportunity to share my experiences as a family law attorney with a wide audience.
Helping Couples Divorce Gracefully
When I was recently asked to contribute a chapter to a new book about divorce I jumped at the opportunity. I was inspired to contribute to the book, Divorce Insights: Conversations With America’s Leading Divorce Professionals, in the hopes that it would help people who are not my clients but may want some pointers for navigating their divorce.
The chapter is written in a question and answer format, so I was given the opportunity to share several of my personal experiences as a family law attorney. Over the years, I’ve realized there are a lot of misconceptions out there about the divorce process overall. This has motivated me to help my clients and others overcome some common divorce myths, including:
- Antenuptial agreements will be held up in court
- Divorce can be a quick process
- I have to learn to fight dirty if I want to come out ahead in my divorce
- I need an aggressive, litigious attorney to “win” my divorce
I cover these myths and more in the book. In addition, I offer tips for choosing the right attorney and how to productively reflect on what you hope to get out of the divorce process (both financially and emotionally).
Preparing for A Stress-Free Divorce
If you haven’t spoken to an attorney yet (maybe you’re just considering divorce at this point), I would recommend picking up Divorce Insights from Amazon. Each chapter is very insightful,and while the information should not be taken as legal advice or considered applicable to your case, it can get you working in the right direction.
