Topic: Family Law
When I consulted with Jeanne, I told her I wasn’t happy with my marriage. I had been married for 39 years. You know, we can all love. But when that love doesn’t include happiness, love will die.
Jeanne explained how divorce law in Florida requires spouses to split assets 50-50. The facts were pretty cut and dry and nothing that couldn’t be worked out. Jeanne gave me the tools to work with so that my spouse and I could come to an agreement.
Then there are the emotions of divorce – not so cut and dry. Whose hands I chose to hold during the process, through hiring Jeanne, made all the difference in the world.
Having Jeanne and her staff, Chris and Andrea, helped me get through the up-and-down moments I was feeling. They were a caring legal team who I could trust, and were always there for me when I needed reassurance and direction.
One thing that Chris did was to help with spreadsheets that showed the marital assets and property of my husband and myself. Chris spoke to my husband and did a great job with that. Andrea, who is at the front desk, is a great cheerleader and manager of paperwork.
Jeanne is very compassionate and attentive. She really made me feel like I wasn’t the only person who had problems.
I’ve found this to be true: If you don’t take the time to create the life you want, you’re going to be spending a lot of time dealing with a life that you don’t want. It took a long time for me to decide to get a divorce, but with Jeanne, Chris and Andrea’s help I got through it after I took that first step.
I’m divorced now and people who I’ve met have actually commented on my new inner state of mind. They pick up that I’m happy.
