Divorce, Alimony & Child Support Disputes in Scranton, Clarks Summit and Northeastern, PA

In many instances, a family will stay happy and together throughout their lives, rarely if ever needing legal help. However, in other cases and despite all the best possible efforts, a couple will decide to end a marriage. It’s unfortunate, but it does happen. Knowing what steps to take and when to get help is an important part of getting through the process with as little pain as possible.

How a family law attorney can help you

If you are going through a divorce, there are several possible critical issues you could be facing. Some you will be able to navigate on your own, while others will definitely require the help of a skilled family law attorney.

Without the guidance an attorney can provide you, a stressful situation can become even more so, and an unpleasant situation can turn downright ugly. The damage can be worse than it needs to be, and the scars can be deep, permanent and painful.

With an attorney on your side, much of the emotions involved in a family law situation can be toned down, so that you are focusing on the facts, which is what a court will look at when it comes time to finalize your dissolution.

A family law attorney will be able to assist you with a variety of matters, including child custody issues, property sales and settlements, tax concerns, the division of assets, alimony, child support, parenting plans and visitation schedules and many other related issues.

A family law attorney can save you money

While some people may be concerned about the costs associated with hiring an attorney, the reality is that many times, a divorcing couple may actually save money by avoiding a costly court battle. This is because an attorney will usually make every attempt to negotiate as many terms as possible instead of going through what could be a protracted and costly divorce process where neither party may get what they want in the end.
