Main Issues in Divorce case

Divide Your Property Equitably

Houses, cars, furniture, electronics, debts, and all of the other “stuff”- All of the property acquired during a marriage needs to be identified and then divided equitably.

Protect your Financial Future

Retirement savings and pensions earned during marriage are divided in divorce with each spouse typically receiving half of the retirement asset, regardless of which spouse actually “earned” the asset. Spousal Support, sometimes called alimony, is awarded based on a set of factors and is very case specific.

Thrive in your Relationship with your Child

When your marriage ends, your relationship with your spouse is not over; it changes from a relationship of spouses to that of co-parents. No parent dreams of only seeing their child half of the time or less. Kids need both parents in their lives, and the orders that are put into place during a divorce will affect your child for the rest of their lives.

There is life after divorce, and the decisions that are make during your divorce proceedings will impact you and people that you love for the rest of your lives.
