Call us first to find out how The Common Sense Divorce can help you and your spouse avoid costly mistakes and get your separation process started off on the right foot


Some people go into divorce well-armed. They know exactly what’s going to happen next. They’ve researched ahead of time and they have an action plan.

Other people…not so much.

Divorce can be an incredibly overwhelming time for you: Who do you turn to? Who do you trust? What are your rights? Can you come out of this any better off than you are right now?

If there is any area where common sense flies out the window, it’s during a divorce.

Divorce is complicated. There are so many things you have to think about. And when there are children involved, it gets even more complicated.

People bring all their baggage, dump it in the middle of the floor, mix it up, and they they try to sort it out. That’s not the way to do it and it can be very expensive to do it the wrong way.

Instead you should be separating with a process in mind: you should know exactly where to start and and you should know exactly where you’re going to end up! And there should be steps along the way that make perfect sense to you – Common Sense.

And that’s what The Common Sense Divorce is.


Every couple faces unique challenges.
Understand how separation will affect you,
your children, your finances and your future.

DO NOT BEGIN NEGOTIATIONS UNTIL you understand your situation, your rights, your potential complexities.
