Remember to Focus on the Long-Term

It is easy to get wrapped up in the emotions that accompany divorce proceedings, especially when there are lingering feelings of anger, frustration or bitterness, as so often happens during separation. This can cause people to focus only on their short-term goals of ending the marriage and closing the book on this part of their lives.

Unfortunately, it is not always so simple. For example, agreements regarding parenting time and child support as well as legal decision making will continue to affect your life long after the divorce is final. At The Peterson Law Firm, we do our best to prepare you for the issues that can arise regarding these types of agreements and promise to fight to protect you and your rights.
