Call the Divorce Law Firm that Cares about Clients' Wellbeing

Marriages fail for a variety of reasons like infidelity, disagreement about finances, constant arguments and a general feeling of unhappiness. Sometimes couples simply grow apart and don't have much left in common.

When a couple decides to separate and divorce, wisdom dictates a consultation with an experienced family law attorney. A good divorce lawyer can explain the law and assist clients in making sound legal decisions.

The law firm of Nolan Byers P.C. encourages the collaborative divorce prcess which solves family law disputes rather than fanning the flames of conflict. Collaborative law allows families to talk through problems in a supportive, cooperative environment in which they can settle such issues as parenting, child support and asset division without the expense of fighting it out in a court of law.

Collaborative law has the benefit of helping former partners create a workable relationship as individuals with separate lives. It also protects the best interests of any children involved.
