As you might imagine, our divorce clients at Huckabee, Weiler, & Levengood, P.C. often hold working collaboratively as one of their lowest priorities. After all, they are typically nearing the end of a significant partnership in which teamwork, compromise and mediation have failed. However, we usually advise our clients here in Pennsylvania to work together with their spouses and our extended network of experts to obtain the best possible resolution for their own interests.
While you might assume that you would gain more independence from a divorce, the opposite is often true — at least in the short term. The initial stages, including mediation, discovery and litigation, would be more likely to feel like you were inviting everyone into your relationship. We find this is especially true when our clients' spouses do not wish to comply with reasonable requests.
In order to illustrate that our clients are making normal and necessary demands, and in order to protect their best interests against the opposition in a divorce, it is sometimes necessary for us to engage the assistance of outside professionals. We have developed trusted contacts in various critical fields, such as psychology, accounting and finance, to help us justify the divorce terms we pursue on our clients' behalf.
Even if you were to enter the divorce process looking forward to independence and freedom, it is unlikely that you would want to attempt to negotiate and litigate a divorce on your own. Even as family law attorneys, we often find it advantageous to call in specialists from other professions to strengthen our clients' positions.
