As you know, hiring a highly experienced divorce attorney who understands the tendencies of the judges and magistrates is a major step towards completing your divorce team.
Going through a divorce includes a huge emotional component. Often, litigants forget that they need to cast aside their anger, fear and other emotions, and get down to the business of learning their finances to prepare for their financial future.
Almost every woman I represent tells me she feels that the Courts bend over backwards to help the man during their litigation. Men can refuse to disclose financial information, they can spend all of the marital money during the separation and they can not financially support their family, yet their appear to be no consequences.
Men feel that they get a bad rap in the divorce process. Judges favor moms for custody. Men get hit with high child support and alimony awards. Why does she get half of my retirement? I hear this all the time.
