I don’t know about you, but when I first got married seventeen years ago, I never would have even dreamed that I would ever end up needing a divorce or family law attorney. Unfortunately, it turns out that a divorce lawyer is exactly what I’m going to need in the coming months. My husband and I have finally decided to call it quits and he’s already hired his own divorce attorney, even though at first we talked about trying to use the same family law attorney to help us through the divorce. Back then, we were still being civil to each other and so we were trying to think of ways to get a good divorce attorney but to also save some money on the divorce lawyer fees and all of the court costs. Well, it looks like now that it’s not going to happen. My husband isn’t happy with the way I explained that I want the kids’ custody to be handled and he immediately went out and hired his own divorce lawyer. I really still feel like if we had someone who was an expert in family law or even in civil litigation that we might be able to work this whole thing out with just some mediation and not have to take it to court. Leave it to my husband to make us have to hire not one but two divorce attorneys! Talk about a good way to waste money. I guess it just goes to show one of the many reasons that we are breaking up.
