Getting a divorce can be emotionally draining and stressful, even in the best of situations.

In these cases, having the right divorce attorney on your side can make all the difference.

With over 100 years of combined experience, our attorneys understand the legal issues that will need to be addressed in your case, and we will fight to protect your rights and interests.

Addressing High-Conflict Divorce Situations

Because divorce involves the end of a relationship that was expected to last for a lifetime, some level of conflict is to be expected. Disagreements about how certain matters will be handled are often unavoidable, since both spouses may wish to maintain ownership of certain marital property, or parents may have different expectations about how they will share parental responsibilities or divide parenting time with their children. Working to resolve these issues and reach agreements is part of the divorce process, but in some cases, a couple's relationship may have broken down to the point that they cannot discuss matters civilly, or one or both parties may refuse to budge on certain issues. 

With the right attorney on your side during your divorce, you can determine the best ways to address conflicts that may seem impossible to resolve. At McSwain Nagle Giese & Rapp, P.C., we can negotiate on your behalf with your spouse and their lawyer, and we can provide guidance on how you might be able to reach compromises. We can help you understand whether you may be able to use mediation or collaborative law to create a divorce settlement or whether litigation might be necessary to resolve the outstanding issues in your case. Where necessary, our attorneys aggressively negotiate to ensure that the other side is aware that the firm is prepared to take the matter to trial if no reasonable settlement can be reached.

We will help you determine the best approach to take when dealing with a variety of high-conflict situations. If your spouse has dissipated marital assets or has otherwise acted in a way that has caused financial harm to you or your family, we can bring these matters to the court's attention and ensure that they are addressed properly. If infidelity played a role in the end of your marriage, we can help you understand how it will affect the divorce proceedings, if at all. If domestic violence or abuse has occurred, or if your spouse has committed harassment or acted in a way that has caused you to fear for your or your children's safety, we can help you take steps to obtain a restraining order or an order of protection and address these concerns during your divorce. We can also assist with high-profile divorce cases involving celebrities or public figures and help resolve conflicts in a way that keeps the details of your divorce out of the public eye.
