The Importance of a Good Divorce Attorney

Divorce is a terrible thing that far too many people in this country are forced to go through. When people fall in love and get married, they imagine that they will spend the rest of their lives together. Unfortunately, in most instances, this is not the case. The sad fact is that roughly 60 percent of all marriages in the United States end in divorce. A large portion of these divorces occur within the first five years. Therefore, if you get married, there is a very realistic chance you will get divorced. Hopefully, this will never happen. If it does, you need to make sure you have the proper representation, especially if the divorce turns into a messy court battle. Cordell & Cordell's Facebook page provides a lot of great info, and these attorneys will be there to help you if divorce is unavoidable. Here are some things that illustrate the importance of a good divorce attorney.

1. Years of experience

Ideally, you will want to hire a divorce attorney who has been handling divorce cases for many years. This type of experience is extremely valuable if you are unable to agree on a settlement with your spouse. Your attorney will do his or her best to reason with your spouse's attorney and agree on a settlement that is beneficial to both parties. However, if this is not possible, an experienced attorney will know all of the right legal maneuvers to use in order to prevent your spouse from ruining you financially.

2. Child custody

The innocent victims in a divorce scenario are the children. If you get divorced and there are children involved, your attorney will fight for your right to have custody. This is especially important in the case of men, who often do not get awarded custody, even when they have proven to be a responsible and capable parent. You love your children and just because you are now getting a divorce, you should not be squeezed out of their lives. Your attorney will make sure this does not happen.

3. Protection of your assets

You have worked your entire life to accumulate your assets. Hiring an experienced divorce attorney will help to ensure that your assets are protected and that alimony and child support payments are kept to a reasonable amount. You have worked too hard for what you have just to see it all given to your spouse during a divorce.

Visiting Pantabangan Dam

Last Wednesday, we were invited by my sis-in-law Marlyn to her hometown in Rizal, Nueva Ecija. She told me that it's just 20 minutes away to Pantabangan Dam. Upon hearing that, I suggested that we will have to go there since I haven't seen that place. So we left our house at 7am and we reached Rizal around 9:30am. Marlyn's brother and nephew were waiting on us in Rizal and they were our guide in going to Pantabangan Dam. On the road, we were amazed of the zigzag road and some mountains. It reminded us of Baguio City.

When we reached the place, our tour guide talked to the 2 guards and then they let us in. The Pantabangan Dam, the cleanest in the country and acclaimed as the second largest dam in Asia generates 112 megawatts of hydroelectric power and supplies the irrigation requirements of about 77,000 hectares of agricultural lands in Central Luzon.

It was past 10AM and it was already hot. We just went to take some photos. Had we been there earlier, we could have went to the fishing lake where they catch and sell fish. My hubby didn't even want to walk under the blaring heat of the sun. I had to call him a few times to come and and have picture taking with us.

Perfect Vacations That Cost Very Little

In case you hadn’t noticed I thought I’d remind you about something - Summer is finally, at long last, just around the corner! Well ... almost. :) Personally, although I love Christmas I DO NOT like the cold… In fact I could teach Eskimos a thing or two about how to keep warm! But enough about that – back to SUMMER!!!

I always like to plan a vacation because it not only gives the whole family something to look forward to; it also gives them something to remember in years to come. And something which few people realize is that it is possible to plan an entire vacation that doesn’t cost much more than your normal day to day living.

First you need to plan the TYPE of holiday you want to have. Whether you’re going camping in the wilderness or sunning yourself next to a pool near the ocean you can search online for coupons and other discounts, like those you can find on Discountrue, to save on getting all the gear you may need for your trip. From beach towels and sunscreen to camping stoves and tents, with a little research you can get special deals on just about anything.

When planning your destination opt for self catering options over bed and breakfasts or hotels. Not only is the accommodation going to be cheaper but you’ll be taking along your own food and drink. Food and drink which you’ll buy with the coupons that you would be using even if you stayed at home! Another option for saving on your holiday food bill is to find hotels where kids eat and stay for free.

There are tons of online travel sites where one can compare prices, find cheaper options for all aspects of the trip from accommodation to airfare and also take advantage of some amazing package deals.

But remember – a little bit of spontaneity opens the door to the best travel deals and with sites like Discountrue catering for exactly that – there will always be a perfect deal that you can take advantage of!

And for the days that you’re not actually away? Look local! You’d be amazed at how much is going on right in your own backyard from participating in conservation efforts and free events to the relatively cheap thrill of local museums and art galleries.

If you’ll excuse me now – I’m going to unpack my summer wardrobe now and start planning what my family is going to be doing this summer!

Then I will sit down and relax, drink my favorite coffee while reading The New York Times.
