The Hollywood version of a divorce lawyer is often a ruthless shark with little mercy or compassion. Fortunately, this is not how most divorce attorneys in the real world actually are. At The Law Office of Peter A. McInish, LLC, Attorney McInish understands the sensitive and delicate family law issues surrounding divorce, and he is proud to offer his legal services to clients throughout the Dothan, Alabama, area.
Here Attorney McInish shares the top three aspects you should know about divorce lawyers:
- Family Court Professional: Divorce falls under the category of family law, and as such, it involves the family court system. Most family courts are state-run and not federally-run. This means that divorce lawyers have an intimate knowledge of local and state laws and regulations, and they are committed to the safety and just representation of not only you, but for your entire family as well.
- Expert Negotiator: Unlike the tough-as-nails image of a big-screen divorce attorney taking a hardline stance and refusing to budge, a real-life divorce lawyer is an expert negotiator. Successful negotiation is crucial to any divorce. Your divorce lawyer at The Law Office of Peter A. McInish, LLC, represents your interests as he negotiates the intricate financial settlements involved in divorce proceedings.
- Arranges Child Custody & Support Agreements: One of the goals of any divorce involving children is to keep the family unit as cohesive as possible. Your divorce attorney at The Law Office of Peter A. McInish, LLC, works with both you and your spouse's lawyer to design child custody and child support agreements that are agreeable to both parties. This can be a very intense and heatedly debated issue during a divorce, and a divorce lawyer can help diffuse the situation and keep everyone focused on the goal.
