In today’s blog, your North Haven and Greenwich, CT attorneys provide information about the divorce process and discuss potential obstacles you may have to face during your matter.
Finances, Finances, Finances!
Regardless of your reason for filing for divorce, our top priority is to make sure that you are properly represented throughout the process. This means making sure you are aware of the steps involved, that you fill out and file the appropriate paperwork before their deadlines, and that you are aware of and prepared for the following consequences of the process.
One element of a legal separation that is often not talked much about is each spouse’s financial situation. In fact, finances are a sensitive topic for many, and oftentimes things are better left unsaid. When you are making the adjustment from married life, however, it is something that must be addressed.
Keep in mind that you are transitioning from a joint income and shared bills or responsibilities, which is often a process met with great strife and strain. Moreover, if either or both spouses were not working, this can lead to other complications throughout your proceeding. To learn more about this process and how our team can help, give us a call today.
Division of Assets and Debts
In addition to the importance of looking at your independent finances, an issue that you might not have considered includes the division of both your assets and debt. Oftentimes, clients are well aware of the division of assets element, as they already have an idea of what they want to claim and what needs to be fought for.
In terms of debts, however, it can become easy to overlook that these must be split as well. A judge will look at many factors to determine the division of debts between former spouses, and our team can help you learn more about the process.
Child Custody Disputes
Last, but most certainly not least, your divorce process can become more complex when you and your former spouse share a child or children. Not only do you have to consider the elements listed previously, but you must establish custody of any children involved, create a custody agreement and parenting plan, and of course, arrange child support payments or owes.
