This episode provides an explanation of what divorce lawyers do to help people with divorce.
At Leap Frog Divorce, we help people transform their families through the divorce process. Couples with children will always be a family, whether divorced or still together. When parents divorce, their family will still be a family. It will simply be a different kind of family. It is important for children to have the stability of mom and dad. And while mom and dad may not want to stay married anymore, they still have to fulfill their important roles as parents.
You know, a lot of people ask me, what is it that divorce lawyers do? And how is it that they help people? Hi, everybody. I’m A.J. Grossman, Divorce Lawyer, certified family mediator and dispute resolution specialist with Leap Frog Divorce.
So divorce lawyers do a lot of things with their clients. And divorce law is one of the most interesting areas of law for me. And it really gives me an opportunity to fulfill my counselor role.
So, as a divorce lawyer, I don’t just look at somebody’s factual situation, and think about what law applies and advise them of their rights. It’s so much more than that. It’s helping them through the practical aspects of divorce, like, what do I do about my finances? What do I do about registering my children for school? What do I do about finding a new place to live? Do I need to leave the house? Should I ask my spouse to leave the house? How do I plan for the future? How am I ever going to be able to retire? You know, how do I parent with my child’s father or mother?
And so really, it’s counseling with people.
I kind of compare it to somebody who has a map, let’s say that you’re going to a place you’ve never been before. And it would be really helpful to have a guide, who knows the terrain, knows the pitfalls and dangers, knows the good routes to take. Well, that’s what I am for people in a divorce. I’m the guide. I have a roadmap. I can help people avoid pitfalls and the dangers that can come up in divorce. I know the terrain I can help guide them effectively, to help them get divorced faster, for the least amount of expense, whatever their goals are. I’m their guide with a map.
So when people ask me what is it divorce lawyers do and how can they help people? That’s what I usually say, Well, I’m the guide with the map. I can help them get to wherever it is they need to go.
