At the Law Offices of Brandon Bernstein, we work with individuals across all backgrounds, and clients of all types. One area in which we’ve gained invaluable firsthand experience is in serving as a Maryland divorce lawyer for men. Learn more about how hiring an attorney with specific experience in aggressively protecting the rights of husbands and fathers can help your case.
Understanding Your Rights
Some men mistakenly believe what they’ve commonly heard as a refrain all of their lives, that during a divorce they basically won’t have any rights. That’s not the case.
It’s important to understand the specifics of the rights that men do have in any pending divorce case, in terms of finances, as well as child custody, and child support. Each case is different, but an experienced divorce lawyer for men in Maryland will show you the rights you do have, and will aggressively be able to fight on your behalf to fully receive them.
Keep You On Track
It’s easy to get off track during what’s often a longer and more complicated process than many people realize. A divorce attorney for men will ensure you stay on track. That means staying on top of deadlines, not giving into demands based on fatigue of the process, not signing documents without the presence of your attorney, and so forth.
Offer Ongoing Support
The other side of that is less about legal process, and more about how daunting the journey can be. It’s an emotionally difficult, challenging time, and it can take a toll on you. Your attorney will know the likely pitfalls and ups and downs along the way, and will be able to offer ongoing support. He will be able to inform you about what to expect, when you’ll see certain outcomes, and how to cope at each step of the process.
Separating Emotions from the Process
One of the most common issues for many men during divorce is that they let their emotions get in the way of things. Your divorce lawyer for men will ensure that you separate the emotions from the actual legal wrangling.
Emotions could swing towards anger and resentment, making matters uglier and more difficult than necessary, or could swing towards depression and simply giving up. Neither is the best course of action. Your attorney will help ensure that emotions don’t cloud judgments.
Fighting… For What’s Worthwhile
An experienced Maryland divorce lawyer for men will aggressively fight to protect your rights, and to help you achieve the outcomes you’re seeking. Perhaps equally important to the overall process will be helping you to not fight over the details that simply don’t matter that much.
Letting go of the strain and burden of fighting over inconsequential matters will provide you with some much needed relief. As they say, pick your battles — and then do everything you can to make sure you win the ones you do pick.
