Divorce proceedings have many facets, and complications can arise in any area where your spouse refuses to cooperate. A Tazewell child custody attorney helps you to resolve as many disputes as possible out of the courtroom so that you can avoid exhausting and costly court appearances.
One of the first issues that couples going through a divorce must resolve is the division of marital property. The law defines marital property as any property or assets gained during the marriage. For example, if you have a car that you bought before your marriage, under some circumstances you retain that car after the divorce. However, if you and your spouse purchased that car during your marriage, it is subject to the property division process. Other property commonly distributed includes homes, land, money and items of particular importance to each spouse.
After the property division process, our lawyers may seek alimony (also known as spousal support) on your behalf to ensure you can maintain your standard of living. After all, you might lose a major source of income in your divorce, so you may require financial assistance to stay on your feet. How much alimony you can receive is influenced by a variety of factors, which include:
Our lawyers work with you to achieve fair results in the property division process and to obtain as much alimony support for you as possible.
