The Importance of Obtaining a Divorce Attorney

If you are going through a divorce or have recently gone through a divorce you understand the importance of needing a divorce attorney. The process of divorce can take an emotional and physical toll on someone and an attorney will help to ease the process. Although it is possible to get through a divorce without legal help, it is not recommended, especially when children and property are involved. A good lawyer can help you sort through the process and determine what it is that you want to take away from the marriage. When deciding on division of property, a lawyer is able to help fairly divide any assets that may be involved. Most importantly, when children are involved, an attorney is going to help create a custody agreement that works best for their client and for the children involved. In addition to creating a custody agreement, the attorney will do anything possible to find a decision between each party and their legal representation and keep the custody battle from the court room. This would eliminate the added expense that a trial would cost. Please contact us at McHenry Haszard Law if you need advice on obtaining a divorce attorney or on any other legal issues.

Living Will

A Living Will gives advanced instructions when an individual is no longer able to direct, make, communicate or participate in decisions affecting their life, health or medical care and treatment.  This is especially important when the individual is suffering from an incurable and irreversible injury, mental disability, disease or illness that is terminal and death is inevitable. This type of document is normally considered for the elderly, however, it is also highly recommended for individuals of all ages.  Unfortunately, we never know when we might be faced with a situation in which a Living Will is necessary in order to leave behind directives on how emergency situations should be handled especially when life support is involved.
