Even if you anticipate an uncontested, non-hostile approach to the dissolution of marriage, you never know when an unexpected issue could emerge. By working with an experienced divorce lawyer, George E. Thompson,
you can rest assured your rights will be upheld and you will walk away from your marriage with your dignity intact. Mr. Thompson and his team will also help you iron out important issues including child support, custody, visitation and spousal support.
Work With a Divorce Attorney to Negotiate the Common Divorce Issues
When it comes to the dissolution of marriage, one of the top priorities for both parties is always the children. First and foremost, parties seek to determine whether the child will live and how often the other parent may visit. It is not always easy to discuss these issues face-to-face with your soon-to-be ex-spouse. Mr. Thompson and his team can work with you to help effectuate a satisfactory custody and visitation plan that will uphold your rights and help maintain your relationship with your children.
In addition to custody and visitation, the division of marital property is also a highly-contentious issue between two parties to divorce. Our firm will meet with you to discuss the extent of your marital property and debts. From there, you will have to decide what property is worth fighting for and what property you would prefer to let go – and your spouse will do the same. This portion of the divorce negotiation process can be tricky as parties often bicker over high-worth items (e.g., the home, cars or antiques). Parties may also face conflict over issues like the family pet or priceless mementos and heirlooms. To avoid the constant conflict inherent in the property settlement process, call Mr. Thompson and his team. They can assist you with mediation and the division of marital property.
If you were the breadwinner during the marriage while your spouse maintained the home or worked a lesser-paying job, you may be required to pay spousal support for a period of time. Once known as alimony, spousal support is often included in a final divorce decree in order to help the non-breadwinning spouse get back on her feet post-divorce. Spousal support is generally only awarded for a finite period of time and may be modified if one or both parties face significant financial hardship.
