As a family law attorney, it is essential for me to explain the legal process to my clients. This may sound easy, but with so many myths and piles of misinformation out there, it’s actually quite hard to separate expectations from reality. I’ve found this is particularly true for the legal divorce process.
Divorce in the media is often portrayed as a grand emotional battle fought in court with a full jury or it involves just “signing papers” and it’s over. In real life, divorce is none of those things.
