Unique Family Situations Deserve Uniquely Tailored Service

Every family is different, so no two cases should be treated the same. At Bours & Lucero, LLC, our combined skills and experience allow us to custom craft a solution for each client. We take the time to build personal connections before creating individualized plans for every case. Our clients share their circumstances, goals and needs. In turn, we help them understand the law and how it applies to them in their unique situations.

Because of this, we can deliver the best results possible every time, no matter the complexities of the case. No one wants to get married only to file for a divorce after a few years. Unfortunately, it is something that happens, no matter how much you try to patch things up. Since it cannot be avoided, learning how to get through a divorce is important.

Tips For Successfully Navigating Divorce

Since divorce entails both emotional and legal struggles, here are some tips that will hopefully help you through the process:

Honesty

Honesty is always the most important factor in any client-attorney relationship. The worst thing for an attorney is to go to a trial or hearing only to learn negative things about his or her client for the first time. As a general rule of thumb, attorneys require some information every time a client knocks on their door. At this point, you have to let your attorney know every single thing there is to know regarding your marriage. You must be willing to ask questions and share your information, including any bad news about yourself.

Patience

One of the most common misconceptions about divorce is that this is something that can be resolved quickly. While a quick resolution is not impossible, legal experts all agree that divorce is a lengthy procedure. This length of the process depends on the complexity of the marital estate and the number of disputes and problems associated with the case. It is not unusual for a divorce to last from six to 12 months and at times, even longer.

Preparedness

It’s tough to get a divorce, but the aftermath tends to be much worse. To get through a divorce, you must prepare your heart and mind for the stress that will come. It is not easy to swallow the divorce pill, but don’t forget that your attorney is there to help reduce or even eliminate your stress.

Circumstances

During the discovery process, there will be questions that you find unpleasant. Some questions might drag you down or even frighten you. Again, you have to prepare yourself for all the possibilities that could happen during the process. Divorce is no doubt a difficult and complex process for anyone, even if the situation is an amicable one. Attorneys recommend anyone thinking of filing for divorce first do some research to learn about the whole process and what to expect down the road. This way, learning how to get through a divorce will be easier and less stressful for you.
