March Boldly Into A New Future

A Message From Senior Partner and Owner Tom Marks...

Practicing family law is a privilege. Not only because our firm has the opportunity to advocate for justice in the lives of the people we serve, but because we can serve as catalysts for better living.

While divorce is often one of the darkest experiences in a person's life, it can also be the very thing that enables them to work through whatever has kept them from the life they are meant to live. This is especially rewarding when working through those things with our clients results in reconciliation. Yes, you're hearing that from a divorce lawyer.
 
The truth is: "There are far better things ahead than any we leave behind." -C.S. Lewis

This month’s newsletter contains two articles that may be of value to anyone you know facing a family law issue. Please share them if you think they could be of value to someone you know. 

As we march boldly into spring, my hope is that your future will be filled with far better things than those we are leaving behind.

Parenting Through Divorce

It is sometimes hard to see how our divorce is affecting our children because we are hurting so badly ourselves. It is easy to let our pain blind us to the needs of our children. Many times, the thing our kids need most is the thing that is the hardest thing for us to do: Be nice to our spouse.
 
Don't do it because the other parent "deserves" it.
Do it because your children deserve it.

Collaborative Law vs. Mediation

 
First, let me say that both the Collaborative Law Process and Mediation have their place and each can be very beneficial in the right circumstances. However, although they may appear similar at first blush, their focus and processes are different. Both attempt to help the Parties resolve their issues without formal litigation, with the goal being a Settlement Agreement in their case. One calls that agreement a Collaborative Law Agreement and the other calls it a Mediation Agreement.  Click here to read the rest.
