Divorce is a complicated legal process. It is also a highly emotional life event. Parting ways with your spouse gives rise to complex issues regarding your finances, property and — most importantly — your children.
At the law office of Betsy A. Fischer, LLC, we are here to help you through these significant transitions. We understand how intimidating the divorce process can seem. Our mission is to provide real-world guidance on the practical and legal ramifications of divorce. Armed with that knowledge, you can feel more confident about making informed decisions on the road ahead.
Just as every marriage is unique, so, too, is each divorce case. The particular path your divorce follows will depend a great deal on your circumstances and goals.
For some, divorce is a relatively painless process with few or no contested issues. Yet even in uncontested divorce cases, it is critical to seek guidance from an attorney. Our firm will help you avoid pitfalls and make sure that no loose ends remain. We offer discounted flat-fee representation for uncontested cases.
In other divorces, disagreements may be unavoidable. You will need an experienced advocate to protect your rights and prepare a strong case.
