Divorce planning involves preparing for a divorce prior to filing. Proper planning can protect your assets and help you reach a positive resolution. Our attorneys work with clients to help them anticipate the course of action that the other side will likely consider. At the same time, we help clients understand their needs and goals regarding:
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
- Spousal support
- Property division
When planning your divorce, we will also need to know if you have an estate plan including a will, trust, power of attorney or health care directive. Likely, these documents name your spouse as the individual who will make end-of-life medical decisions for you or inherit your estate if you pass away. Our goal is to proactively review and change your estate planning documents to ensure that your wishes regarding your medical treatment and estate are honored.
We are committed to providing services designed to help you plan for a divorce. Our attorneys work closely with our clients to provide them with important information regarding:
- Business interests
- Property ownership
- Finance details and title information
- How to prevent parental relocations
- How to deal with accusations of domestic violence
- Ways to handle drug and alcohol abuse allegations
Our lawyers also help many non-wage earning spouses position themselves financially for a contentious divorce trial.
