Your Guide to an Amicable Divorce

For many, there seems to be an unspoken rule that divorces have to be a festival of bitterness, acrimony and vengeance; a sort of legal bloodbath. Often, there is a great deal of money at stake, a lot of hurt feelings and even the welfare of your children hanging in the balance. This doesn’t mean, however, that civility can’t prevail in these proceedings. The fact is that the quicker and more amicably a divorce is settled, the better off everyone involved will be, including your ex-spouse and your children. In an effort to buck trends and work toward a kinder, gentler divorce, here are a few things to consider:

Maturity and Mutual Respect

Despite increasing criticism of the institution of marriage, a majority of marriages are indeed entered into out of love. This means that, despite what might be happening now, there was once something in your spouse that you loved and respected. Hold onto that when going through the divorce. Don’t let your ex take advantage of you, but don’t go out of your way to take advantage of them either.

Remember the Children

If every bit of affection that you have for your ex is indeed dead, think of the children who may be suffering while their parents are going after each other in court. A messy divorce can inflict lasting emotional trauma on the children and cause them to form negative perceptions of marriage in their adult lives.

Choose an Emotionally Mature Attorney

The unfortunate reality is that there are some lawyers who have a vested interest in dragging out your divorce in order to accumulate more billable hours. When you’re looking for a divorce attorney, you want to choose a professional who will make sure you’re treated fairly without trying to leave you penniless by the time your divorce is finalized.

Divorce is a fact of life, but it doesn’t have to be the ugly ordeal that everyone suggests.

Attorney Graziano is one of the brightest and most compassionate professionals which anyone could work with! He is a great advocate and is extremely knowledgable of the judicial system. He made a very unpleasant legal situation a pleasant journey, and he helped keep things in perspective and in a positive light. I fully recommend him without reservation! Danielle
Hiring the right attorney to represent your divorce case is one of the most important decisions you will ever make! I was fortunate enough to hire Ron to handle my case and had what I believe to be a favorable outcome. I based my opinion on achieving the goals we set in the beginning of the case and comparing my final outcomes to friends and colleagues that went through the process with other attorneys. Thank you Ron! Craig
It seemed like my case took forever but I trusted Ron Grazaino and listened to what he had to say. Mr Graziano said that the insurance company was not being fair and that we should go to trial. The trial was very nerve racking however he eased my mind and killed them with proof and knowledge. My outcome of my trial brought me to tears of joy. I could never imagine such a good outcome. Listen to him, have faith and you too will be impressed. Robin

His staff is amazing as well!!
