Know What to Expect in Divorce
No two divorces are the same, but all divorces share some of the same signposts and milestones. We have created a brief, one-page document that you can find, print and review at your leisure to gain a better sense of how your divorce will proceed. Click here to access our "Roadmap for Divorce."
Effective Financial Counsel
Not only is divorce an intensely financial procedure, it may also be one of the largest expenses you will ever incur. Despite all of this, few family law attorneys have any significant background handling tax and financial issues.
Susan L Jeffries worked as a tax attorney for Chevron for 10 years before turning her focus to family law in 1990. Not only can she solve even the most complex financial problems, she can also help you plan and structure payments so that the cost of your divorce doesn't overwhelm you in the months and years ahead. Remember: divorce is one of the leading causes of bankruptcy.
Minimizing Conflict to Save Your Resources
One of the surest ways to minimize expenses in divorce is to avoid unnecessary litigation. At the Law Offices of Susan L. Jeffries & Associates, we never initiate or escalate any legal conflict unless it is absolutely unavoidable. Not only does this keep costs low for clients, it avoids unnecessary emotional stress as well.
