The crucial question in every divorce action is simple: what kind of spouse and/or opposing divorce attorney are we going to be working with? Are they open to settlement? Are they going to delay, obstruct, or otherwise refuse to budge from an unreasonable or legally-unsupportable position?

The reason this is the Crucial Question is because the strategies to deal with these two very different types of spouses are very different. A spouse who is open to compromise should be handled very gently, and will often be scared into defensive or even aggressive conduct if your attorney comes in “heavy-handed.”

The spouse who is open to compromise needs to be reassured that he or she is not being taken advantage of. They have to be convinced of your and your attorney's honesty and integrity—once that happens, things can fall into place very quickly, and your divorce action can be swiftly brought to a conclusion.

However, when dealing with an obstructing or unreasonable spouse, these same tactics will get you nowhere, only resulting in delays, possible legal prejudice and additional costs over time as the divorce case lingers in the courts.

With the “my way or the highway” spouse, the most effective method for bringing closure is to develop an airtight legal case right from the very beginning, craft an evidence-supported offer of settlement, and aggressively seek attorney's fees reimbursement if that offer is not accepted. Nader, Naraghi & Woodcock, APLC used this approach to swiftly bring to a conclusion cases that, with prior attorneys, have lingered in the court system for years.

“I have had an excellent experience with Bill Woodcock and his supporting staff while they represented me in a family law matter. Their billing and fee structure is reasonable and never did I get the sense that anyone was trying to over-bill me or that they were creating unnecessary work just for the sake of additional fees. Bill is extremely well versed in the Family Code and also relevant case law. More importantly, when it is appropriate, he is very much willing to help find solutions with the other side (much cheaper to find the middle ground where possible) as opposed to fighting over every little thing (extremely expensive). That said, when push comes to shove, Bill can be very aggressive and was always able to represent my position to the fullest extent possible because of his knowledge, experience, and preparation. Bill's supporting staff is also very attentive and detail-oriented. Before this I had no experience with the family court system or family law and it was very comforting to have Bill and Elvira (his paralegal / office manager) be able to explain things clearly in terms that I could understand (not just a bunch of legal mumbo jumbo). I highly recommend this firm for representation.”
