Whether your divorce is a surprise or a long-expected event there are some important steps you should take at the start of a divorce proceeding to protect yourself, your children and your finances.
The very first one is to consult with an attorney right away! Whether your divorce is amicable or not, you need to weigh many considerations, especially your finances and those areas related to your children including child custody, child support, and children’s visitation rights. Finding the right lawyer to represent you is the very first important step.
Protecting Yourself Financially During Divorce
Divorce has a significant effect on your current and future financial conditions. There are some important first steps for you to take to protect yourself financially and our attorneys can advise you in how to deal with the following financial issues as well as other divorce matters:
- Credit cards
- Bank accounts
- Retirement accounts
- Real Estate
- Personal property
- Execution of documents
Our attorneys can advise you in these and other important financial decisions to ensure that you and your assets are protected as we plan and process your divorce proceedings.
Children and Divorce
Divorce will significantly affect your role as a parent and the amount of time that you can spend with your kids. Child custody rights are one of the most important aspects of getting divorced. Important considerations early in the process include:
- Moving or not moving
- Whether or not the children should move out of their home
- Moving across state lines/concerns about interstate issues
- Changing the children’s school
- Custody and visitation as it relates to support
- The effect of new relationships on custody issues
- Child Support
- Spousal Support
- Visitation Rights
Child custody matters will be a significant part of the divorce procedures and they are often one of the biggest sticking points. Educating yourself on child custody and visitation rights with an attorney consultation will help to protect your rights as a parent.
