Divorce Statistics & Expectations
Today, approximately 50% of all first marriages end in divorce, and those
statistics are even worse for second or subsequent marriages. Sadly, most
people who get married to the love of their life never expect that their
marriage will one day end in divorce. If your marriage is one of the many
that has not withstood the stresses of everyday life, than you are not
alone. Friedman & Friedman, Attorneys at Law is dedicated to helping

Historically, going through a divorce is expected to be one of the most
stressful and traumatic experiences an adult will ever have to go through.
Considering how much time, energy and effort goes into building a marriage,
and a family, it's understandable that breaking up would be an extremely
emotional and devastating experience for the parties involved.

Divorce Areas of Practice
Although no two divorce cases are identical, most of them will have the
same core issues that will have to be fully addressed.
Some of the most pressing issues include:
- Debt division
- Asset division
- Property division matters
In some cases, a judge will award
alimony / maintenance to one of the spouses. Where there are children involved, the parents
will have to decide upon
child custody, visitation and
child support. If the parents cannot come to an agreement on such matters, the court
will have to step in and decide for them. In virtually all cases, the
court will make its decisions based on what's in the best interest
of the children.
