Out of all of the areas pertaining to family law, filing for a divorce is one of the most challenging and life altering decisions you will make in life. According to recent statistics from www.DivorceRate.org, almost 50% of marriages in the U.S. will end in a divorce. While you may never see yourself as a statistic, the unfortunate truth is that divorce is an experience you cannot plan for and you should not take on alone. Divorce can cause more emotional distress on a family than a terminal illness, and it can become as emotionally devastating as a death in the family.
