The results of a divorce case can have a drastic impact on your future. The rules and procedures that apply to domestic cases are often nuanced and can be confusing to those not acquainted with the process. With so much at stake, the cost of hiring proficient legal counsel is tiny in comparison to the benefits. Because divorce cases often involve monthly payments of child support and alimony that will last for years and large assets like real estate and investment accounts, a good attorney who looks out for your best interest can mean the difference of tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in the long run.
