Divorce Negotiation

Once you and your spouse have made the decision to end your marriage, the actual process can seem vague and indefinite. Conceptualizing when the relationship will formally end, how property will be divided, what will happen if minor children are involved and other related decisions are all deeply personal, and it is not unusual to find yourself at odds with your future former-spouse. At McCabe Russell, PA, our skilled divorce attorneys in Howard and Montgomery County know from experience that every divorce process is as unique as the relationship of the parties involved. Navigating the emotional and practical currents that are often present during the divorce process takes more than empathy — it takes practical experience and commitment to weathering storms in search of an equitable outcome.

The realities of negotiation

In negotiation, both parties have needs and will be required to compromise on some points. Our role is to make certain that issues that are of greatest import to you, including child custody, alimony or property division, are held to fairly and firmly. Most couples entering into a negotiation process will have individual — and minimally overlapping — ideas for a preferred outcome. In addition to preparing our clients for the real possibility of not getting every single desire and hope met in a negotiation, we also explore what their most vital needs are, so we can focus on those key components.

When a child or children are involved, negotiations become both more complex and more transparent. The question becomes one of what is best for the child, rather than a matter of personal preference for one individual or the other. Because of our extensive experience in child custody litigation and child support issues specifically, we are perfectly situated to assist in these types of divorce negotiations.
