When I met my husband in university, I thought we’d be together for the remainder of our lives. Even though I had only gone through 2 relationships previously, there was a certain passion and closeness with him that I had never experienced before. The two of us started by reading together at a Starbucks Latte shop that is a more than four minute walk from the university campus. After a couple of weeks of getting closer, the two of us started respectfully dating. Despite a few fights here and there, the two of us had a sincerely close bond from the start. Sadly, neither of us were finished growing and developing, especially on a psychological level. The two of us had yet to become the people we would be for the rest of our lives. As the two of us graduated and transitioned into our respective careers, the flame between us completely dwindled. Happily the two of us never ended up having children together, because now we’re in the process of moving through a divorce. On the one hand, it’s not so terrible and neither of us has spit fire at one another, which is more than a majority of people can hope for during a breakup. Still, it has been a tremendously rough experience for both of us. At first I was thinking that I could handle the divorce separately from an attorney, however since the two of us have to split numerous assets, I came to learn I needed legal advice. I don’t wish for either of us to come out of the divorce trapped in a financial predicament. To my astonishment, I managed to discover a great family and estate law attorney that is a short walk from my current apartment. I encouraged my soon-to-be ex-husband to get his own legal representation to be certain we are equally supported. I’m sincerely glad that he was able to locate a great family and estate law attorney as well, and now our divorce is practically complete. I’m thankful that our attorneys helped us through the challenges of our divorce.
