Choosing a Family Lawyer

CHOOSING A WINDSOR FAMILY LAW LAWYER

When Separation Is Imminent

If you have reached the point where you are sure separation is imminent, it is probably time to choose a family law lawyer. You may have attempted marital counseling and tried everything possible to avoid divorce. While you never thought you would be here, it is important to have a lawyer by your side to protect your interests throughout the separation and divorce.

Keep in mind that just because you are divorcing doesn’t mean the gloves have to come off. Settlement negotiations often work. In fact, many people wish to maintain an amicable relationship with their spouses. The same respect you had for each other throughout the marriage can carry through during and after divorce proceedings.

At Jason P. Howie, Professional Corporation, we believe that good family law lawyers should have a variety of legal strategies in their legal tool belts. A separation agreement can be established in many ways, including:

  • Arbitration

  • Mediation

  • Collaboration

  • Court

  • Negotiation and settlement out of court

Just as you wouldn’t want a doctor who always recommends surgery, it is important to hire a lawyer who is not fixated on only one process. Our legal team is committed to choosing the most appropriate process for each of our clients, based on their individual situations.

A good lawyer must also be adaptable. If we are halfway through the process and our strategy isn’t working, we may need to change our method or bring in third parties for assistance. We work with a range of professionals to best serve our clients, including child psychologists, accountants, business valuators and other experts who can help us move efficiently through the process. We understand that you don’t want to fight forever, and we are committed to finding the best solutions for you and your family.
