If you are contemplating divorce and have children, it is likely that you have many questions about child custody and how parenting time and responsibilities will be divided.

Child Support Guidance
Giving Your Children The Support They Need – When you are going through a divorce, you want to make sure that your children will be well cared for. It is important to have a skilled law firm on your side to guide you and advocate for you in matters regarding your children and their well-being. We pursue the most optimal child support settlement for your situation to ensure that your children thrive in their environments.
Asset & Property Division / Preservation
When couples divorce, plans need to be put into place to divide property and assets.
We can help you with all property division issues:
Identifying marital property:
Marital property is property that was acquired during marriage. There are some exceptions such as gifts that were given to only one spouse, items that were bought and obtained with assets before the marriage, etc.
Dividing marital property & debts:
We can help you assess your property and debts. If needed we have a network of forensic accountants, financial analysts, specialists in business valuation and many others.
Planning For Property Division During A Divorce – Resources that formerly supported one household, must be divided to support two. You need to make smart decisions regarding your finances before a divorce, during a divorce and after a divorce is finalized. We can HELP!
Effective asset valuation is the key to property division – proper valuation of high-end assets in a divorce is important. Spouses have great incentive to conceal these assets or make unreasonable demands about how this valuable marital property should be divided.
We have the skill and resources needed to effectively handle high-net worth divorce cases involving the following property and assets:
- Artwork & Antiques
- How To Divide A Business
- Real Estate Investments
- Retirement & Pension Benefits
- Trust Funds & Other Inheritances
In order to effectively identify and value significant martial assets, we consult with appraisal experts in a wide range of disciplines, including real estate, business, accounting, pension and trust administration, taxation and more. Our primary objective in all property division matters is to gather and present a comprehensive picture of your property, and how to divide it fairly.
Strategic Representation With Your Best Interests In Mind
During a divorce, spouses are often not only concerned about asset division, but also about asset preservation. And if there are no children involved, there is a private attorney to deal with rather than the Department of Human Resources (DHR). In these situations, negotiation skills become much more prevalent.
We are skilled negotiators who will strongly advocate for your interests and assets at every step of the case. Our first step will be to attempt to reach a settlement that will be most beneficial to you. In an effort to avoid the mudslinging that often accompanies a trial, we will try to reach an agreement as quickly, reasonably and amicably as possible. If this is not possible, we are accomplished trial attorneys who are ready and able to represent you in court.
