Hollywood Divorce vs. Real-Life Divorce

Posted on in Divorce

Illinois divorce attorney, Illinois family lawyer, IL child custody lawyerThe Oscar-nominated movie, Marriage Story, starring Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver, offers insight and advice regarding marriage and divorce. The film focuses on real-life issues within a relationship and offers teachable lessons for those who are ending their marriages.

The critically-acclaimed film has won rave reviews because of its realistic and often gut-wrenching portrayal of a couple whose love for each other disintegrates into divorce. And just like many real-life couples, the main characters first agree that they will bypass legal battles and have a "friendly divorce," however, both end up hiring divorce attorneys. As the film reveals, even the friendliest of breakups can become contentious and attorneys are needed to make sure the divorce process is as fair as possible for both spouses.

How Divorce Attorneys Make a Difference

If you believe your marriage is headed towards divorce, do not put off hiring a legal professional from Weiss-Kunz & Oliver to help. Our legal team has successfully handled countless divorce cases and has the skill and legal expertise when it comes to knowing what to expect both in and outside of the courtroom.

More often than not, we represent clients whose soon-to-be ex-spouses are only focused on "winning," whether that is winning more assets, more property, or the custody of the children. Each divorce attorney from our firm understands that the issues involved in a divorce are not a contest - these issues will determine your and your children's future, including your financial, emotional, and physical well-being.

Even the simplest of divorces can quickly escalate into a "messy" one. Having a seasoned divorce attorney advocating for you through this process is critical to ensuring that your parental rights are protected and you receive your fair share of the marital estate. Your attorney will make sure that issues regarding child custody and support, asset and property division, and spousal support are worked out with the best resolution possible based on the circumstances of your case.

Your divorce attorney's dedication does not end when the divorce is final. It is not uncommon for divorced couples to have legal issues that arise that result in the need for legal action, such as modifications of parenting plans, child support, or spousal support. Your attorney can help resolve these issues, as well.
