GO OVER YOUR DIVORCE OPTIONS CAREFULLY
Family law matters can be difficult to work through because the parties have such as big investment in the matter. Learning about your options in divorce and custody cases can help you to feel more secure in the situation.
When the divorce includes child custody agreements, you need to look at each decision separately so that you can make decisions in your child's best interests. We can help you explore your options for all matters related to the divorce.
We know that hashing these issues out can be quite difficult. Some decisions have an emotional element that can make things even more challenging because the practical side of the decision might not always mesh with the emotional aspects that get triggered. Fortunately, taking a step back from the decision might help to make it a bit easier.
You will also have to divide community property to finalize your divorce. It might help if you start with the larger assets and then use smaller assets to fill in some gaps. Even the debts from the marriage have to be divided, so be sure to think about how this will impact your financial future. We can help you to go over the possibilities.
Custody matters are often the most difficult to negotiate because the decisions you make aren't about you and your ex but for and about your children. When you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse can't agree, you might find that things turn heated quickly. Mediation is a useful forum to help the two of you devise workable terms for your parenting agreement.
