Protecting Your Assets and Future
Marriage is a legal partnership that establishes property rights as well as the responsibility to provide for the economic and emotional support of the couple's children. When a marriage ends, the divorce settlement agreement must account for the division of all marital assets, from bank accounts to cars to real estate to business holdings. In addition, debts owed by the couple must be divided.
Divorcing parties must also come to agreement on issues involving children. We will help you and your spouse come to agreement on a fair parenting plan that gives both parents the opportunity to have ongoing relationships with their children.
