I've a life long love of baseball, thus, forgive the parallels that follow: All planning and best intentions aside, our lives serve up any number of pitches - some are anticipated and expected, and we're ready for them. Marriage, Relocation, the Birth of Children and Growing Families. On the other hand, some are unexpected, and do funny things, like seemingly dip and swerve and bounce in mid-air. They are called "curve balls" and trick pitches. When we're not ready for them, nonetheless, we have to stand in there and take our best swing. Some examples? Marriage, Relocation, the Birth of Children and Growing Families (surprise - sometime notanticipated or expected). Add to these, Marital Dissolution, Relocation, the Emergence of Children into Adulthood, Shrinking Families and "the Empty Nest."
Lo and behold, fast balls, curve balls, and trick pitches are all capable of being hit for Home Runs. Just gotta be prepared, ready and equipped, and have a someone who has your back, who is loyal and who you can trust and rely upon to be there. My own experience includes decades as a player, as a coach and as a fan/spectator. In each position, I have striven to be "that Guy." Making it through LIFE Passages takes courage, patience and confidence and "that Guy" who can help pull you through.
Allow me to be "that Guy" for you.

THE DISENGAGING AND THE DISENGAGED
Marital Disengagements (Dissolutions/Divorces) are one of those Life Passages that we don't wish upon anyone. Still, those who have emerged from the "Fraternity/Sorority that no one wants to join" have my utmost respect when they do so with self-respect intact, heads held high, newly empowered and looking toward the future.
Dispositions of "marital residences" are a definite part of the marital dissolution process; oftentimes, they are the lynch-pin of the process as the single most valuable asset of the Marital Estate. A knowledgeable Realtor with a Lawyer's mindset (and Domestic Relations experience, in particular) is a tremendously important asset during delicate times. Familiarity with, and understanding of Court deadlines and the reasons therefor, the advocacy and adversary roles of counsel and how all of the moving parts must work in concert as couples are disengaging facilitates the process.
As a former Family Law practitioner I am sensitive to the emotions and the stressors to be addressed with sensitivity and care resulting with Marital Dissolutions. Contact me and allow me to be of help to Divorcing Couples in Selling a Marital Residence and/or acquiring a new residence following emergence, anew. Make no mistake, Divorce is a difficult Life Passage and process. Legal Counsel and your Realtor guide you through the process and allow you to start out, again.
When life serves up a set-back, you can succumb or you can attack. Choose attack.
