The word finance evokes so many emotions in people that it can stop you in your tracks. Add in the word divorce and it becomes debilitating to a lot of people. The basic fear of not knowing what the end result will be can create more havoc, conflict, time loss, and ultimately, higher costs to reach a resolution.
The legal system is not designed for you, the individual. It’s designed for society as a whole.
