Getting Through A Divorce With Your Rights Intact
Thinking about divorce can bring up all types of fears and emotions. What will happen to the kids? Can I still live in my house? What should I expect financially? Take a deep breath and remember that you have options. By working with an experienced attorney, you can get through this.
From our West Palm Beach law offices, we at The Associates can help you navigate the divorce process, allowing you to move on to a new phase of your life with hope. As your lawyer, firm founder David Lloyd Merrill will be dedicated to determining:

For most couples, a divorce is stressful enough without having to worry about lawyers, judges and time in court. In addition to contested divorce proceedings, The Associates offers collaborative divorce services, where we will sit down with you, your spouse and his or her lawyer to work out an agreement that works best for everyone without going through the expense and pain of fighting over a result that is, ultimately, usually decided by statute anyway. For most couples, this saves time, money and emotion and can provide a good starting point for effective co-parenting.
However, we are also a proven trial law firm that recognizes when it is in your best interest to take your case before a judge. If your spouse is not being reasonable in settlement negotiations, we are prepared to protect your rights in court.
