Divorce is almost never an easy or casual life event.
Short-term and long-term marriages alike affect many areas of the interwoven lives of spouses. When a marriage falls apart, the emotional and practical consequences require personal adjustment for every member of the family. Legal and financial matters must also be settled.
After a divorce is complete, all assets should have clear ownership with one or the other spouse.
We work closely with you to ensure that your best interests and that of your family are the top priority.

Child custody and support
If there are minor children of the husband and wife, a divorce will include a court order spelling out which parent will keep possession or custody of the children most of the time. It will normally also allow for regular visitation or parenting time with the other parent. Child support is typically determined through a state formula that takes into account each parent’s income, the parenting plan and other factors.
The ending of a long-term marriage in which a husband or wife has been dependent often means that partner will need financial support at least temporarily. A family law judge may issue a support order to take effect during the divorce process and/or after the divorce is complete.
