A Skilled Divorce Attorney Helps You Navigate the Many Issues That Must Be Resolved in a Divorce Judgment
Getting a divorce is a legally complicated process. There are many issues to consider, such as how the marital assets will be divided, as well as addressing the validity of a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement if one was drafted for your marriage. Another complicated issue arises if you and your spouse have minor children. The divorce judgment will need to address the living arrangement for the children, including which spouse’s home will be the children’s primary residence, as well as allocating parenting time for the spouses, and assessing income to determine child support payments, among many other things.
There may also be additional issues that arise if one of the spouses or both spouses together own a business. The judge may require a valuation of the business to determine how it should be factored in to the distribution of your assets. Often, you will not be forced to sell the business, but depending on the value of the business, one spouse may be awarded the business going forward, but that spouse may also forego the residential home, for example. This is done to ensure an equitable distribution of marital assets.
Resolving Your Divorce Case Through a Settlement Agreement
Another reason it can be so valuable to have an experienced attorney on your side for your divorce case is that their negotiation skills can make a huge difference in the final divorce judgment. Most often, divorce cases are settled prior to proceeding to a trial on the matter. With a skilled attorney, you can expect that they will use their experience and talent to negotiate with your spouse and his or her attorney in order to try and achieve the best outcome possible for you.
