When you go through a divorce, the major issues often include whether to award spousal support and how much should be paid, and the division of property and debts. If you have children, then your divorce will also involve a determination of which parent will have custody, the schedule for visitation (called parenting time), and the amount of child support. We understand this is an emotionally charged and stressful time, and the legal decisions can be overwhelming. We help relieve this burden with honest and direct legal advice, delivered with compassion and care for your best interests.
A well-crafted divorce agreement will fairly share the risks and tax consequences between the parties and give each spouse a firm understanding of their rights and obligations regarding these benefits. We are able to help our clients settle out of court in most cases. In the minority of cases requiring a trial, we will educate the judge about the value and tax consequences of dividing these complex assets.
