Preparing for Your Independence Day
The July 4th holiday is quickly approaching and celebrates the signing and issuance of the Declaration of Independence. While often considered the start of the United States, the seeds of revolution had been planted long before through discontent over taxation and many other issues and included actual battles fought at Lexington and Concord more than a year before July 4, 1776.
Your separation, divorce, and personal “Independence Day” from your abuser are not much different. Whether that day is rapidly approaching or a longer-term goal, there are steps and actions you can begin to take now to protect yourself and your children. These items although they may seem small can significantly increase the likelihood of a successful outcome in court or negotiations as well as protect your safety and security.
Over the next several weeks, we’ll be addressing the ten things you need to do to prepare for your “Independence Day” and we hope you’ll follow along and take whatever steps you need to do to prepare for your personal liberation. As always, the attorneys of Lesnik Family Law are here to guide and walk with you through tumultuous times. Please contact us with any specific questions or to set up an initial consultation.
