Hiring An Attorney For Dog Attack Injuries

Hey there, I am Erin Arnolds. I was simply walking down the street a year ago, minding my own business, when a dog burst out from behind a house and attacked me. I was helpless to protect myself from the ferocious bites and scratches from that angry animal. Neighbors finally came out and pulled the dog off me, which ended up saving my life. At the hospital, I received hundreds of stitches and stayed in a medically induced coma for several weeks. Upon coming out of the coma, I immediately called a lawyer to receive help suing the dog owners for the attack. I needed to have my hospital bills and lost wages covered by the owners of that vicious dog. Due to that experience, I created this site to help others learn how to hire a lawyer and obtain compensation for injuries caused by a dog attack.


How To Prepare For A 'Gray Divorce'

Dissolving a marriage after a few years is hard but relatively easy to move on with life. However, after a few decades with someone, the divorce becomes more complicated. You are both in your fifties, sixties, or older and likely have sired and raised kids together. It is not just you in this relationship; there are kids, pets, properties, investments, and even grandkids.

Are You Ready for a Divorce?

Divorce is hard, especially for people who have been together for decades. However, staying in a marriage that you are not happy with is equally hard. Therefore, you have got to question whether you want to do this. Consult a divorce attorney and understand your options. Will you choose a no-fault divorce or a fault-based divorce? 

Anticipate Future Expenses 

The end of your marriage isn't the end of life. A lot will change, including your monthly expenditure. If you were living in a matrimonial home, one or both of you will leave the property. You might decide to sell the property and split the proceeds. 

If not, whoever leaves has to be content with renting a home or buying their property. Whoever stays might have to keep up the mortgage payments.  

Compare your income with the expected expenses to see whether you are ready for this divorce. Ensure that your divorce attorney has this information so that they can adjust their strategy accordingly. 

Think About Your Kids 

It is tough for kids to watch their parents grow out of love, disrespect, demean, belittle and treat each other harshly. Ideally, every child would prefer to grow up in a loving two-parent household. However, when the marriage doesn't work, mediation, counseling, separation, and divorce are options. 

Before you decide to divorce your partner, consider its implication on your kids. If you are over 50, most of your kids are old enough to understand. Some of them don't rely on you for support, but this doesn't mean that it won't affect them. It is better that you talk to your kids before you embark on your divorce instead of blindsiding them. 

Contact a Divorce Attorney 

You can do this without an attorney, but remember, there is a lot at stake. If you have been married for over a decade, you have likely made investments together, bought properties, and assets. Most of these are considered marital property, but your partner can try to convince you otherwise. Talk to a divorce attorney to understand the process and everything you need to prepare.
