Interview more than one attorney. For many women, a divorce is likely your first, only, and most emotionally-draining interaction with the legal system. It is important you pick someone you trust, someone you are comfortable speaking to about your life, someone who is responsive, someone who knows the law, and someone who understands the logistics of court proceedings. A good divorce attorney should be able to explain the divorce process to you in an empathetic, knowledgeable way, and also give you an estimated timeline of how the case will proceed as well as how much each stage will cost.
Women are different than men. Women’s goals in a divorce can be different than the goals that men have. Often times, the inertia of the legal system can minimize or trivialize goals that a wife or mother has for her future, which are far more important to her than what the court and lawyers are focused on. By representing exclusively women, WSM attorneys know what is important to our clients and how to convey the importance of these issues to the court, Guardian ad Litem, and even opposing counsel.
Yes! The dissolution of a marriage, even if amicable, is complicated. Imagine dissolving a business partnership: even if the partners are in agreement, they wouldn’t try to draft the dissolution documents themselves. A marriage is a partnership. Dissolving the marriage requires division of equity in a home, cash and retirement assets, vehicle title transfers, and your children’s schedules. Making sure this divorce contract is drafted properly ensures that everyone is getting what they are trying to agree to and ensures that the agreement is enforceable. While you may agree and be amicable now, who knows what can happen in the future. You want to make sure your decree is sound.
Yes! Custody orders are always modifiable. The law acknowledges that circumstances change and your custody order or shared parenting plan may need to be modified. To that end, the barrier to re-entry is a change in circumstances. If you want to modify your order, you need to demonstrate a change in circumstances that makes your current plan no longer in your children’s best interests.
Courts are required to identify, value, and divide all marital assets and debts. If an asset or debt is acquired during the marriage, it is typically a marital asset/debt subject to division. The court’s goal is to get to a 50/50 division of assets. This can be accomplished either by dividing the assets in such a way that each party ends up with half the assets or, if one party has more than half the assets, that party would owe the other party an equalization payment. The division of assets and equalization payments sound daunting, but are generally straight forward and you should certainly call one of our attorneys to ask about how this applies to your case.
We believe our reviews speak for themselves. We go above and beyond to serve our clients. We understand that your life is being turned upside down. We are always a phone call away and one of our primary goals is for you to be assured that we have the legal side of the break up of your marriage is completely covered and one less thing you need to be concerned about.
