Help! My Lawyer Won't Let Me Settle My Case

She walked out of his office more frustrated with her attorney than she was with her soon-to-be ex-husband. They had finally found a moment away from their new interests and had come to an agreement on everything. The children, the finances (including the credit card debt), the retirement accounts; everything had gotten sorted out. All that was left was to sign the documents and get them to the Court for the Judge's signature. Then they could start to put all of this behind them.

Funding the Feud (and Not the Family One)

Practicing in Savannah and Southeast Georgia, the pool of family law attorneys is rather small. I don't know the last time I had a case where opposing counsel in a divorce, modification or contempt was "new" to me. In most cases we go back quite a way in our professional relationship. I try and keep those relationships professional and congenial. Life's too short, and we are going to wind up against each other again and again.

Family Law: Hateful People

As the saying goes, "it takes all kinds." There are happy people in family law. There are nonplussed people in family law. There are nonchalant people in family law. And yes, there are hateful people in family law.

Crass Calculations for Custody

I always tell my clients that everything in family law has a dollar value and therefore can be and should be evaluated from a cost/benefit analysis. Everything, that is, except for one thing, the children.  When the issue is the children you leave the realm of apples to apples comparisons and enter the land of apples to oranges, or more correctly, apples to antelopes or atoms or the andromeda galaxy.  When custody is at stake, how can you ever place a dollar value on it?
