What to Do When Pursuing a Divorce

If you’re divorcing your spouse, or debating on whether or not to go through a divorce, contact us. Once you do, we’ll schedule an initial consultation. This is a critical step because it allows us to get to know you and familiarize ourselves with your case. While we will ask you several questions, we make it a point to get answers to these crucial questions. Doing so allows us to form and efficient legal strategy moving forward. We will answer the following questions:

• Do You Have Grounds for Divorce? As of 2010, there are several grounds of divorce. “At-fault” divorce grounds include cruel and inhuman treatment, adultery, abandonment, and imprisonment. Additionally, courts consider the irretrievable breakdown of a relationship over at least six months a “no-fault” divorce.

• What Property Is Distributed During a Divorce? All property obtained by either or both parties during the marriage, before signing a separation agreement, or before the divorce action is initiated marital property. All marital property is subject to distribution between spouses.

• How Do You Find Hidden or Undisclosed Assets? In some cases, one spouse may have undisclosed monies or assets. According to the National Endowment for Financial Education, 58% of spouses hide cash from their partner. We can hire forensic experts to document and retrieve these assets.

• What Are the Common Effects of Divorce? Divorces have automatic effects. For example, the disposition of property in a will is modified to exclude the divorced spouse. Additionally, life insurance, retirement plans, and pensions all sever ties with the other party.

• What Type of Divorce is Best for Your Situation? There are two types of divorces, contested and uncontested, and which kind we pursue depends on a variety of factors. We’ll weigh all of them and carefully explain the next steps.
