Boise Divorce Attorney - Family Law Lawyers - 208-472-2383

The Role of a Divorce Lawyer
As a Boise Divorce Attorney, I routinely provide divorce services to my clients.  But, what does it mean to provide divorce services?  What is the role of a divorce lawyer?  I pose this question because a divorce is a very complex thing.  There are the legal aspects and then there are the social, emotional and potentially spiritual aspects to it.

What a Divorce Lawyer Does
As a Family Law Lawyer, I initiate or respond to a divorce.  I help clients make determinations as to how and why property should be divided.  I help clients understand custody, determine the best custody situation, establish child support amounts.  I negotiate with the other side to get the best settlement for my client.  I file motions, responses, temporary orders, briefs and final orders with the court in support of my client.  I argue before the judge my client's case.  My role is to take the client through the loops and the hoops of the law.

To a degree I also must counsel my clients.  Divorce is a very emotional occurrence; something people don't go through personally everyday.  I see the effects on people daily and I see what pours fuel on a fire and what helps to make things go smoothly.  However, I also always tell my clients that there are many resources out there for counseling and counselors who are best equipped to help them emotionally, spiritually and socially.

Emotional, Social and Spiritual Support Before, During and After Divorce
Just as a legal professional can make your divorce go smoothly and have the best outcome for you, a professional counselor can go a long way helping someone through a divorce.  Long after your divorce is completed, you will continue to suffer the effects of divorce and will continue to need support.  They don't call marriage a life decision for nothing and the end of a marriage has life long consequences, especially if you have children.

While a court will order mediation and a court will order child support and a court will order custody, a court doesn't order you to take care of yourself.  Professional counseling will help you do that.  If you are struggling through your divorce, avail yourself of the resources available to you.  Understanding what the professionals you have employed in your life can do for you can help you make the best of your situation.

  2. A probate lawyer can make sure that everything you include in your will is carried out since you won’t be able to do this yourself. If your will attorney doesn’t double as a probate lawyer, you should enlist the help of a probate lawyer to make sure your interests are looked after.

  4. Hi,
    Nice post....A will or testament is a legal declaration by which a person, the testator, names one or more persons to manage his or her estate and provides for the distribution of his property at death. For the devolution of property not disposed of by will, see inheritance and intestacy.
