Guiding clients through complicated divorce proceedings.

During divorces, clients are asked to make difficult decisions regarding their futures and their children's futures. Who will have custody of the kids? What will the visitation agreement be? How much alimony is necessary for your support needs? We keep our clients focused on making decisions that will benefit them over the long term.

At Sotta & Briggs, we have learned that divorce can be much easier when clients can put the antagonism and anger aside. Focus on what you need in the future, not on punishing your spouse for what has happened in the past.

Divorce can be a traumatic experience for children. As parents, your responsibility is to ensure that your children will have healthy and happy relationships with both parents. Making responsible decisions regarding child support and custody can help minimize the emotional effect of divorce.
