Court is Not Like the Television

ImageMcIlveen Family Law Firm assists clients in the process of transitioning from one chapter in their lives to the next. This transition for many is emotionally difficult.  So many people are drawn to the concept of “winning,” or righting a wrong. 

Court is not like the television. Just because there is a judge does not mean that a “winner” will be announced. 

In North Carolina we have the no-fault divorce which in part to prevent having a courtroom regularly host the high-emotion conflict that one might see on “The Jerry Springer Show” or “Maury.”  

There are certainly instances where cases are litigated; however, it is important to realize that the court system is not the proper form for emotional healing. It is designed to set up a plan for the children custody and divide any marital property that was acquired during the marriage.  

Court is not the place for emotional comfort or spiteful revenge. More times than not there emotional aspect of breaking up left after the last court hearing. While McIlveen Family Law Firm will do everything that we can to assist in handling the legal transition, we are glad to be able to point you in the right direction if additional support would be helpful.
