One of the most important aspects of any divorce proceeding that involves children is determining where the child or children will spend their time. Whether you are seeking joint or full custody, our attorneys can help you.
Just as important as meeting your child’s emotional needs, his or her physical needs must be taken into consideration. Raising a child is expensive and both parents have a financial responsibility to their children.
Division of Property
Depending on the circumstances of your divorce, it may be necessary to determine who gets what in regard to your marital property. If you own a home, property, vehicles or have any shared assets, who will retain ownership after your marriage is terminated?
Alimony and Spousal Support
Another financial consideration involves determining how much spousal support or alimony one or both former spouses is entitled to. The court will take many factors into consideration when determining this, and having an experienced legal advocate on your side will be invaluable.
Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
Pre- and postnuptial agreements are legally binding documents written either before or after a marriage to define which assets belong to each spouse. They are intended to simplify the process of dividing property in the event of a divorce.
