3 areas of focus for your divorce strategy

When you are going through a divorce, there are three primary areas that might need to be addressed. Some divorces might have all of these, and others may have one or two. No matter what, it is a good idea to look into them so that you know what to expect. We are here to answer any questions you might have about any of these common concerns.

First, you will have to divide the marital assets and debts. This is known as property division. Some people who are going through this process choose to split up the larger assets like real estate before they move to the smaller ones. This enables them to use the smaller ones to balance out the agreement. Debts might be saved for last since these can also be used to balance out the agreement.

Second, you might have to deal with alimony, which is sometimes called spousal support. This isn't common, but it is possible when a marriage meets certain requirements. The court will look at a variety of points to determine what is appropriate. In some cases, you might be able to negotiate a settlement with your ex.

Third, you may have to handle child custody matters. If you have any minor children in the home, you will have to do this. In many cases, custody is one of the more contentious areas of negotiation. You have to think about what is best for the children, so remember to focus on that when you are trying to figure out how to handle custody decisions.

Throughout the process, you might need to make important decisions. We will work with you to evaluate the options so you can determine what is in your best interests.
