Legal troubles are difficult for anyone. When they involve matters of family, these issues rise to the level of personal crisis. In psychology and medicine, divorce has long been a known risk factor for heart disease, mental illness, and other major health problems. In addition to destabilizing one’s estate, business, and financial security, divorce strikes at the heart of a person’s life and wellbeing.
As a divorce case progresses, those involved must file court papers, form legal arguments, make appeals, and maintain appearances just to uphold the hope of a positive outcome. All of this must be done while dealing with the intense emotional experience that comes with divorce. It is for this reason that obtaining qualified and experienced legal counsel is so important for anyone dealing with issues of family law.
That’s why the family law attorneys at Henriksen & Henriksen are dedicated to protecting your interests and those of your loved ones in matters of divorce. Whether you have only a few assets or a large marital estate, you need to work with an attorney who knows how to represent your interests with the competence and depth of knowledge that comes with more than 60 years of cumulative legal experience.
