Divorce is a complicated process that has an emotional as well as a financial impact on a family. Both parties should handle a divorce with care and attention to detail. The implications can be lifelong. There are numerous factors to be addressed, including the division of marital property, developing a parenting plan (child custody arrangement), arranging primary parental responsibilities, and arranging a visitation schedule as necessary, claiming alimony or child support, defending a claim for alimony or child support, and relocating out of the area with a minor child. At the Childers Law Firm, we guide our clients through the process in order to ease some of the difficulties that come with divorce. We will protect your rights and work hard to achieve your goals in negotiation or in the courtroom.
When selecting a family law attorney in Little Rock or the surrounding areas consider the treatment you receive when you call their office. Does it appear to be an organized practice? Does the divorce attorney have a dedicated family law staff to assist him or her with your case? Is there more than one attorney available to assist if the divorce attorney you want to meet is unavailable? When you meet with a divorce attorney, don't be shy to ask them about their experience with the particular issues in your case, the venue in which the case is pending, or even the attorney on the other side. You want to know you are dealing with someone who has the right experience to handle your case. But also ask yourself if the divorce attorney and staff leave you feeling comfortable, whether they're qualified to advise on your case.
Generally, you will be dealing with them a lot and in potentially stressful situations. It is especially important you feel comfortable communicating with them freely. In fact, we think it is important for you to get a good feel for your divorce attorney and his or her staff. These are the people who will be representing your interests and standing by your side through potentially difficult times.
