Dea Coka offers insights on navigating an ‘irretrievable breakdown' divorce

Dea Coka advises potential clients to have a clear assessment of their goals before proceeding with a divorce.

“Figure out where you are in your relationship,” she says in an article published by Super Lawyers.  “Do you want to get divorced, or do you want to move forward with some form of marital therapy or counseling?  If the counseling has not worked out, that’s when I recommend a family lawyer be consulted to talk a little bit more deeply about what that client’s future goals are going to be.” 

If it appears that a marriage is not salvageable, Ms. Coka, named a Massachusetts Rising Star in Family Law by Super Lawyers, urges individuals to consult with a family law attorney at the outset.

“Instead of trying to save the money upfront and waiting until closer to the end of the case to hire somebody,” she says, “it’s best to consult somebody very early on in the process and try to get a road map of how you want to move forward toward achieving your goals.” 

Ms. Coka concentrates her practice on family law matters, including divorce, child custody, child support, prenuptial agreements, and asset division.
