Issues

"Let he who is without sin cast the first stone."  So sayeth Jesus in John 8:7. That the statement is wise is irrefutable.  That it has an application in relationships and family law is the point of this blog post.

Reconciliation

A fair number of people who file for divorce decide instead to try to preserve their relationship and reconcile.  We have that experience in The Firm as well.  A percentage of our clients who are involved in divorce actions decide to reconcile and dismiss their divorce.  Sometimes, often-times, that is a wonderful thing and we wish the parties well.  Sometimes however, we know that reconciliation is a very bad idea.

Layers upon layers

Relationships are deep, intricate and incredibly complicated.  Just the relationship between two people constantly operates on multiple layers.  When you add children, the layers multiply.  When you add in-laws, siblings and friends, the layers become exponential.  Comprehending it all can seem like trying to make a symphony out of a cacophony or a Monet out of a Pollock.

Pointless

During an initial consultation, I'm often asked when does one know when it is time to finally file for a divorce, when the relationship is over.  "When a conversation is pointless,"  I often answer.
