Choosing a divorce attorney

At the end of a marriage, it is likely that a person has many loose ends to gather up and issues to settle. In Wyoming, one of those issues is choosing the right divorce attorney. It's best to avoid simply choosing the first lawyer in the phonebook, or the one recommended by a family friend. Knowing what to expect from an attorney can help an individual choose the one that is most compatible with the person's needs. 

First steps when facing divorce

Ending a marriage will usually need to be handled strategically as well as emotionally.

A person will need to get his or her house in order, metaphorically speaking. Divorce, when approached in an informed way, can be handled so that any frustration regarding the transition is minimized.

All relationships are unique. That uniqueness extends also to divorce circumstances. The specific circumstances of one's divorce can lead to different outcomes for one's Social Security benefits.

Who gets the season tickets to Broncos games in divorce?

Many Wyoming residents are avid sports fans, especially when the Denver Broncos are concerned. In fact, some people hold season tickets and travel the four or so hours it may take to attend games in person. One wouldn't think something like tickets to football games would be a source of marital problems; however, when divorce occurs, it's assets like these that often lead to contentious property division battles in court. Of course, if children are involved, custody, support and visitation matters may be challenging as well.

Divorce reaching new heights of social acceptance

Allowing for the possibility of divorce brings out the best

Times change, humans evolve and relationship needs can transform over time. As people move into the modern age, they move away from what has been called a shame-based model of marriage.

In Wyoming, as well as other states, preparing for divorce can be as important as preparing for the marriage itself.

Many older couples are seeking divorce

A national center that frequently provides information on social issues, public opinion and demographic trends recently reported that more older couples are deciding to end their marriages.
