When couples get married, they expect to start a happy life together. They might even fantasize about the perfect “happily ever after” with no fights or roadblocks. No one begins their marriage with the expectation of divorce…then life happens!

Every couple has disagreements. Some are just impossible for you to get past.

You may not see eye to eye on raising a family. A once intimate couple might drift apart. One or both partners may have been abusive or unfaithful. The finances or the stress of life may have driven a wedge between you.

None of us are perfect. We all make mistakes, but sometimes those issues are too much to work through.

No matter what brought you to this point, this is not the end of your “happily ever after,” it is just the next chapter. Together we can turn the page and help bring you to a better place.

But you may be wondering what it will be like to have me on your side in the courtroom. What kind of an attorney am I?

Melanie Rhodes has 18 years of experience assisting clients through divorce and custody disputes.

It’s hard to imagine anything more painful than going through a divorce. Two people who were once in love are now separating their lives from each other and there is nothing pretty about it. You have to divide your stuff that you have spent a lifetime collecting together, the family photos, and most importantly, time with your children.

Sometimes everything your spouse says or does hurts. In some cases, everything is intended to hurt.

It’s hard, and I want to help you get through this bleak period as quickly as possible and help you move on to a better stage in your life.

I will take the high road and I will fight hard.

A lot of attorneys, and their clients, might do some shady stuff during a divorce case. Some people are just unethical and will do anything and say anything to get what they want.

Sometimes clients think they want a bulldog on their side. I fight like a bulldog when I need to. It’s not always necessary. At times, an aggressive representation just escalates matters for no reason.

Let’s say the other side doesn’t have an attorney and you start to fight hard right out of the gate. That might freak your spouse out and they may hire someone that behaves even more aggressively. You could end up wasting a lot of money fighting.

I focus on accomplishing the best outcome for you and your family.
