Representing Clients in Divorce Proceedings is important to us and here is why

In the words of Harold Shepley: I have always been a strong champion for marriage, and I continue to be pro-marriage. However, when I gave a debt relief seminar to the Divorce Care Group at the Somerset Christian and Missionary Alliance Church, my eyes were opened to the pain that these individuals were going through. None of the individuals that I spoke with wanted to be divorced. They were all victims of divorce. I sat speechless as I listened to the “horror stories” of how they were treated by their attorneys. The issues ranged from not being able to afford an attorney, to never being able to talk to their attorney, to almost outright theft due to the outrageous fees. Perhaps the worst case was a local attorney “implying” a trade of sexual services since she could not afford his fee. The emotional pain these people were experiencing cut deep to my soul and I knew my firm could no longer sit on the sidelines. We had to get involved.

 

Attorney Jeff Ross from my office agreed to step forward and help these hurting people. I hired one of the best paralegals in the county to assist him, Dawn Bhullar. Not only does Dawn have 6 years’ experience working for the Somerset County Prothonotary’s Office, where all family law issues are handled, but she has been a victim of divorce herself. She has suffered through an abusive relationship and now offers hope to others facing similar adversity.

There is a bright future ahead of you. Right now it is a little hard to see through all the dark clouds. Harold Shepley & Associates will assist you with passion and conviction. We offer affordable fees and payment plans. You no longer have to feel alone and afraid. Give my law firm a call or contact us and let us help you step out of the darkness and in to the light.

Divorce and Family Law FAQs

A divorce is started with one party filing a Complaint in the court of the county that you live in. Your particular situation and needs will determine the contents of that Complaint. There will also be related responsibilities with a divorce filing, such as serving the other party, scheduling hearings and preparation of inventories. Our firm can provide detailed explanations of the process based on your individual situation and help your from beginning to end. Call us today.

While you can certainly represent yourself in a divorce, it is never in your best interest to do so. An online divorce may seem like a quick and easy solution, but there are many areas of concern that those divorces do not cover. When protecting your rights, it is best to have someone on your side with the experience and knowledge to ensure that your interests and rights are protected.
There is always a possibility that there could be an award of child support and/or spousal support awarded to you or collected from you. Whether, or not, you can collect, or be forced to pay, any type of support will be based on numerous factors, including the income of each party, the number of children involved and health insurance coverage.
There are many factors in determining how much a divorce will actually cost. Our firm provides affordable retainer fees, monthly payment plans and transparent pricing. The question that you should ask is how much will a divorce cost if I do not have an experienced attorney fighting for me?
There is no set answer, but it can be completed in as little as 100 days or take much longer depending on the complexity of the case, the attitude of the opposing party and the number of court appearances that your case may require. We always try to guide you to the quickest solution, but will be with your for the duration no matter how long it may take.
