Filing for Divorce: When to Consider Using an Attorney
« on: June 27, 2013, 09:40:53 AM »
It is never easy when deciding to end a marriage by filing for divorce. Depending on the circumstances, divorce may involve issues such as child custody and spousal support. If a divorce is amicable with no real disagreements, both parties may be able to settle any related issues with little assistance or no assistance at all from an attorney.

If a divorce involves disagreements between parties, an experienced divorce attorney can present all available legal options and how best to proceed. Spousal support is usually sought by the party with fewer financial resources. The duration of this support varies, but typically ends if the party receiving the support marries again or when financial circumstances change to the point where support is no longer required.

Child custody is often one of the most contentious consequences of a divorce. Each party may seek sole custody. If joint custody is sought, attorneys for both parties will have to work out an acceptable visitation schedule. Additional divorce issues may include the division of any marital assets such as financial resources and property.

Any assets acquired during the marriage are usually divided. This may including selling the marital home and other properties purchased during the marriage. Assets that were kept separate, however, may be protected. Dividing the marital assets usually involves taking inventory of these assets and determining a fair division.
