The decision to file for a separation from my husband was very difficult to make. I knew that the future for my children and myself would consist of many changes and I was anxious about all of the choices that I would need to make. The service that Sarah provided for me lifted a heavy burden off of my shoulders. Sarah was kind, empathetic, gentle with her advice and recommendations, supportive, and sincere. Her demeanor naturally set me at ease and I felt very comfortable sharing my concerns with her. I never felt judged by Sarah, in fact, I believed that she truly had the best interest of my children and me in mind. She used terminology that I understood when she needed to go over legal information and I plan on recommending her to everyone in need of an attorney. Thank you, Sarah, for helping me through this experience!

Ms. Bell made the process of creating a will for my husband and I simple, straightforward, and easy. She is a pleasure to work with.
Tips & Advices
Each state has different mandates on how child support is determined. But there are some basic factors that underline how costs are determined in each state, including:
  • Income level of parent that needs to pay support (in the case of joint custody, the costs are determined by income of each party and the percentage of time the child spends with each parent)
  • Financial needs of child
  • Child’s standard of living before the divorce occurred
This is a divorce in which one party does not have to prove that the other’s actions lead to a deterioration of the marriage. The reason for divorce is listed as "irreconcilable differences" or an "irreparable breakdown of the marriage,” meaning the marriage was no longer working and could not be repaired.
Family law attorneys are helpful in cases where the two parties are not on amicable terms. The lawyers can act as intermediaries between the two parties and help them come to any settlement agreements, however long that may take. Lawyers can also help parties navigate tricky state laws regarding settlement agreements and child custody, thus expediting the process.
A contested divorce is one in which the parties cannot agree on either the necessity of the divorce as a whole, or how assets (money, property, etc.) and child custody should be split between them in the divorce. An uncontested divorce is when the parties are in agreement on how assets and child custody will be split between them. These divorces can sometimes be handled without hiring a lawyer.
It is possible for a couple to get a divorce without hiring a family law attorney. If the two parties are in agreement on how finances, child custody, properties, etc., will be split, then they can file the necessary court documents themselves and avoid the services of a lawyer.
