There are noticeable new trends in divorce
that affect both the legal process and the financial strategies required
to help clients move past it. These trends include an increased reliance
on alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods such as collaborative divorce

to Select a Divorce Lawyer
Selecting a divorce lawyer to handle your family law case is a
very important decision. The following are a few important criteria

case you may significantly reduce your legal fees. Your lawyer will
provide you with a number of documents received during the proceeding.
This may include correspondence, court notices or other legal documents.
Not every document you receive will require you to respond. Additionally,
