An Experienced Macon Family Law Attorney Handling Divorce

It is impossible to know how your life will change after your divorce. This uncertainty can impact every aspect of your life, creating stress and anxiety. An experienced attorney can help you move forward from this difficult time on the best possible terms. At Lise S. Kaplan, LLC, we recognize that no two divorces are exactly alike. For this reason, we take a personalized approach to best serve our clients. We promote open communication and encourage our clients to ask questions throughout the legal process.

Taking On The Full Range Of Issues In Your Divorce

Before a divorce can be finalized, both spouses must come to an agreement on all of the unresolved issues or a judge or jury will make a determination. Financial considerations, such as the division of marital property, will potentially impact your life for years to come. Another possible consideration in a divorce is alimony. While alimony is not an issue in all divorces, it may be a factor in your case depending on your circumstances.

If you have minor children, creating a sensible child custody plan is likely to be your main concern. Further, whether you expect to pay or receive child support, we will advise you of your rights and discuss your expectations. Every step we take in your divorce will be aimed at putting you in a strong position to move forward with your life.

Guiding You Step By Step Through Divorce

One of the biggest concerns our clients have is how their divorce will be resolved. Whenever possible, we try to resolve your case prior to a trial. This can be accomplished through negotiations with the other party or mediation, during which a neutral third party (the mediator) helps the parties resolve their differences. This can result in a positive resolution without the cost, time and uncertainty of litigation.

While mediation or negotiations can often lead to a settlement for our clients, we realize that some cases can only be concluded by a trial. If we need to take this step, you can have confidence knowing that our lawyer will present a persuasive case on your behalf.
