Divorce is one of the most difficult experiences in a person's life. Although no one enters a marriage anticipating it will end in divorce, situations can change and couples may grow apart. Divorce, or even separation, can be an overwhelming process and becomes even more complex when children are involved or when the marriage involves high income or valuable assets. In a divorce proceeding, spouses tend to have different ideas regarding alimony, spousal and child support, child custody, how to fairly allocate their assets and liabilities and the distribution of marital property. It is essential to obtain competent and experienced legal representation when filing for a divorce.

At Williams Family Law, we are dedicated to supporting our clients during the divorce process so they can begin rebuilding their lives and their families. Our family law attorneys have strong working relationships with experts throughout Bucks County including psychiatrists, psychologists, financial planners and forensic accountants. We have also received specialized training in areas such as arbitration, collaborative law, parent coordination and mediation – and we work with each of our clients to determine the most efficient and effective divorce method for them.

If you have questions about the divorce process, consulting with a skilled family lawyer is critical and our family law attorneys are available to help. Find out more about divorce matters.
