Divorce Lawyers Handling Child Support, Custody, Property Division and More
The decision to divorce comes with many questions and concerns about children, finances and property. How much is the divorce going to cost? Who keeps the house? What’s the best custody arrangement for my kids? At the Law Offices of William J. Courtney, LLC, we can answer these questions and any others you may have. We understand this is a turbulent time for you and your family, and we are here to help.
If you have children, our family law attorneys will work closely with you to establish your goals for child custody and explain your options. We will also help you identify and value your assets, and determine your priorities and goals related to your bank accounts, retirement accounts, vehicles, your home and other possessions. We will carefully consider all of the financial implications of your divorce.
While the law calls for an equal division of assets during divorce, it is important to consult with an experienced divorce attorney to ensure that your rights and interests are protected. Our lawyers regularly work with accountants, including forensic accountants to accurately determine the value of our clients’ assets and conduct business valuations. If you and your spouse own a business such as a closely held corporation or a family business, it is imperative to seek legal advice during a divorce.
Many factors can come into play during the distribution of the assets. For example, in today’s housing market, you may not have enough equity in your house to sell it. Disputes can arise over which spouse stays in the house and how much each spouse contributes to the mortgage payments going forward.
