Divorce Law

Going through a divorce is one of the toughest experiences you might face in your lifetime. As if it weren’t bad enough that your marriage is ending, fighting about who gets what and what happens next feels like the last straw. Divorce cases can get very complicated very quickly.

You obviously want a good attorney on your side if you are going through a messy divorce, but you might not realize how important having a divorce attorney is no matter what. Even uncontested divorces can sometimes get twisted up in complications that could potentially lead to litigation. Having an experienced divorce attorney on your side not only help proceedings move as smoothly as possible, but they can also protect your interests if anything does go south.

How to Proceed when facing Divorce

—Peaceful Proceedings

No one wants a knock-down-drag-out fight to obtain a fair divorce. Some divorce attorneys only seem interested in readying you for long, grueling litigation. This is because they are interested more in how much they can charge you than they are helping you. This is not the type of divorce attorney that has your best interest in mind.

The attorneys at Cotton Law Firm are more interested in helping you obtain a beneficial outcome based on peaceful proceedings. Your attorney should focus on your interests and helping you get what you need out of the divorce as peacefully as possible, but still be ready for litigation should the proceedings go south at all.

This is why Cotton Law Firm is committed to serving your best interests in both contested and uncontested divorces. They are here to provide expert mediation to help ensure that your divorce does not have to be any harder on you than it already is. Should they need to go to court for you, they will be ready to stand by you and defend you to the very end.

—Dividing Assets

Often, the most complicated part of a divorce is dividing assets between the two parties involved. In many cases, the spouses agree on some, or even most of who should have each asset. When they do not agree, a good attorney should be able to step in and help mediate a mutually agreed upon outcome.

The real complicated part comes down to monetary assets, like 401K and retirement benefits, or child custody. When children are involved, proceedings are always more complicated and you want to make sure that the future of you and your children are being protected. Cotton Law Firm knows just what to do in these complicated, and often difficult, situations.
