Professional Yet Compassionate Representation In All Aspects Of Your Divorce
Separating from your spouse is never easy. Beyond the emotional burden, it also places financial and legal burdens on all parties involved. You need to make sure that your rights are protected and that the agreements reached in your legal dispute contribute to a favorable and lasting resolution for yourself and your family.
In Scranton and surrounding areas, you can find the help you need by contacting Tigue Law. I am firm founder Stephanie L. Tigue, and I have more than a decade of experience guiding clients through Pennsylvania family law issues. I can help you, too.
Ready For Whatever Your Case Requires
There are a number of considerations when contemplating divorce, each of which leads to different legal ramifications. The most common issues of concern in a divorce are:
- Filing a “fault” or “no-fault” divorce
- Division of property (equitable distribution)
- Spousal support, alimony pendente lite and (post-divorce) alimony
- Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
I strive to always do what is in the client’s best interest, keeping them informed every step of the way. If reaching a settlement is not possible, I will fight aggressively in court to ensure that my clients receive all that they are entitled to.
Seeking Productive And Peaceful Resolutions While Remaining Ready To Litigate
Courts often make difficult decisions based on what is in a child’s best interest or what is right for an individual family because every child and family is different. Often, the adversarial nature of divorce and custody proceedings results in an inability to compromise, and progress on the case declines.
Before court becomes a necessity, I will work diligently to negotiate agreements outside of court relating to equitable distribution (Division of Marital Assets/Liabilities) or custody of children. A negotiated agreement often leaves clients with more control over the outcome and, in cases of child custody, serves the child’s best interest and provides a more amicable foundation for the years ahead.
When courtroom proceedings are necessary, preparation of the case along with a strong understanding of the law will go far in working toward the client’s desired results. I am an aggressive advocate for my clients in the courtroom and will strive to satisfy your wishes through proven legal experience to achieve the most favorable results.
Effective Representation Tailored To Your Unique Goals
The issues my clients face involve highly personal decisions that demand personal attention from an attorney. Unfortunately, many people end up working with lawyers who never return phone calls or keep clients in the dark about the status of their cases.
I provide quality representation that parallels that provided by any large law firm. I work hard to represent my clients on an individual basis, getting to know their unique concerns and helping them make decisions that reflect the full scope of their well-being. Contact my office online or by telephone at 570-908-5759 to arrange an appointment with an experienced lawyer. I offer free initial consultations to discuss the preliminary details of each case.
