Family Law – Financial Issues
At Hearty Law, we understand that financial issues are often at the heart of family law disputes. We recognize the emotional and financial toll these matters can have on families, and our experienced team of family law attorneys is here to provide comprehensive and compassionate legal representation.
With years of experience in family law, we handle various financial issues that arise during divorce, separation, and other family law matters. Our dedicated team works closely with clients to understand their unique circumstances and develop personalized strategies to protect their financial interests.
Whether you face complex property division, spousal support, or child support issues, we are here to guide you through the process and achieve the best possible outcome.
During divorce or separation, property division is one of the key financial issues to address. Property includes real estate, bank accounts, investments, businesses, and personal belongings.
Our attorneys are skilled at identifying and valuing assets and negotiating fair property division agreements. In cases where an agreement cannot be reached, we are prepared to advocate for our client's interests in court to ensure a just outcome.
Another significant financial issue often arising in family law cases is spousal support, alimony or maintenance. Spousal support is designed to provide financial assistance to a dependent spouse after a divorce or separation.
Determining spousal support involves considering factors such as the length of the marriage, the earning capacity of each spouse, and the standard of living during the marriage. Our knowledgeable attorneys are experienced in evaluating these factors and advocating for fair and reasonable spousal support arrangements.
Child support is a critical financial issue that affects the well-being of children in the event of divorce or separation. This form of financial support ensures that children's basic needs are met, including housing, food, clothing, healthcare, and education. Our family law attorneys are well-versed in child support guidelines and laws, and we work diligently to ensure that support obligations are appropriately calculated and enforced. We also assist clients in modifying child support orders when there are significant changes in circumstances.
Preventing future financial disputes is often a concern for individuals entering marriage or domestic partnerships. Our firm helps clients create customized prenuptial and postnuptial agreements that address financial matters and property division, offering peace of mind and clarity for both parties.
These agreements help protect assets acquired before marriage, outline how property will be divided in divorce or separation, and establish spousal support or alimony provisions. Our attorneys work closely with clients to draft comprehensive agreements that reflect their unique needs and protect their financial interests.
Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution
While we strive to reach amicable resolutions through negotiation and mediation, we understand that some financial issues may require litigation. Our team of skilled litigators is prepared to vigorously represent our client's interests in court, presenting compelling arguments and evidence to achieve the best possible outcome.
We also recognize that litigation can be time-consuming and costly, so we explore alternative dispute resolution methods, such as collaborative law and arbitration, to resolve financial issues while protecting our clients' interests efficiently.
