According to the US Census Bureau, the divorce rate is approximately 3.2 per 1,000 population. There were 689,308 divorces in America last year. The number decreased from years prior, where in 2019, there were about 827,261 divorces. How many spouses here do you think had an advocate on their behalf?
Do you know that the divorce rate is highest among those between twenty-five and thirty-nine? The common reasons are lack of communication, financial issues, and infidelity.
Divorce is never easy, whether you fall into this age group or not. However, divorce becomes more manageable when you have an attorney advocating on your behalf. When relationship issues and the justice system come to a head, things can get heated rather quickly.
If you want to move past your divorce and get back to living your life, we can help. At Dalena & Bosch, there’s only one thing you need to know about the way we approach divorce: we advocate on your behalf. So consider this your unsolicited advice on how to handle the divorce proceedings.
What Is an Advocate for Divorce?
Your divorce attorney advocates on your behalf, taking into account their expertise in the divorce process and the justice system. Most people going through a divorce can only sometimes take part of the scope of the law into the equation. A professional divorce lawyer can help you with the complicated legal side.
Along with legal expertise and experience, your lawyer gives you objective representation. Divorce is an emotional process, and feelings can get in the way of tactfully working through the minutiae. Nevertheless, your lawyer remains focused on the legal aspects of the case and looks out for your best interests.
Even in collaborative divorces, having someone there to ensure you’re not being taken advantage of is vital. Along with your spouse’s lawyer, they’ll negotiate and mediate their way through until you have reasonable terms that satisfy both parties.
Why You Need Help with the Divorce Process
Going into the divorce process without an advocate leaves you vulnerable. If your spouse has legal representation and you don’t, you could be in a precarious situation post-divorce.
Divorce is also stressful. Having a lawyer takes much of the stress off your shoulders just by being there. This allows you to focus more on your mental health as you put your marriage behind you.
Children and shared property may be involved in the proceedings when you’re married for many years. This is when your marital strife becomes a complex legal matter that requires a thorough understanding of New Jersey divorce law.
You don’t want to deal with custody, property distribution, and alimony alone. Experienced lawyers can lay out your options and help you determine the best course of action.
