Although some of the words the law uses are the same as other areas of law, like “Petitioner” and “Respondent,” ending a marriage is unlike any other lawsuit. It simply isn’t the same as suing someone over a car accident. If you are going through a divorce, you need a family lawyer who understands not just the law but the complexities of this major life change.
Going through the legal process of divorce can be confusing and painful, but it does not have to be. A good family lawyer will take the time to listen, explain the law and the divorce process thoroughly — in language you can understand — so that you can make reasoned decisions about your family, your case and your future. Throughout the process, a family lawyer is not just your passionate advocate who fights for your goals but also your guide and partner to develop a path forward through the legal process.
Divorce can be both emotionally and financially draining as you and your spouse start on the path to separate lives. It is tempting to look for the cheapest lawyer or use a do it yourself divorce kit thinking this is going to be the fastest and cheapest way to get divorced in Missouri. However, not hiring the right professional when you need one can cost more in the long run. A professional divorce attorney is the smart choice when you need a divorce, uncontested or otherwise.
The Emery Law Firm understands that going through divorce is a difficult time financially, not just emotionally. Affordable options are available and credit cards are accepted. The initial consultation is free so that you can be confident in choosing an attorney who fits your needs and budget.
