In divorce, there are numerous issues that can arise, each issue requiring a different strategy to protect your rights. The most common issues are:

  •      Real estate
  •      Child custody issues
  •      Child support
  •      Alimony or spousal support
  •      Division of assets
  •      Division of debts
  •      Retirement accounts
  •      Subsequent bankruptcy
  •      Contested Divorce
  •      Uncontested Divorce
  •      High Asset Divorce
  •      Prior Divorce Modification
  •      Contempt and Enforcement
  •      Alimony/Spousal Support

When these are an issue in a divorce, different statues apply to each issue. As such, having an attorney who understands when these issues interrelate and when they do not is of the utmost importance.


Each of these issues requires a deep understanding of your specific case facts and the statutes and an attorney that is accessible to you can often make the difference in the outcome of your case. Our office strives to provide individualized service and contact directly with the attorney and not just the attorney's staff.


For more information on the above issues or other issues in your case, contact our office for a free, no obligation consultation and read more about each issue at the below links.
