Des Moines Divorce Attorney
Divorce is rarely if ever a “win-win” proposition. Rather, in most cases, both spouses are losing something: losing a marriage, a partnership and a lifestyle.
If There Are Children, Their Best Interests Are Paramount
If there are children involved, you will naturally be focused on the best interest of the children. Seek the advice of a lawyer who will respect and fight for your and your children’s right to your fair share of parenting time and child support.
Property Division And Spousal Support Are Also Key Issues
At the same time, a divorce must address issues of property division and in some cases, spousal support. It is unrealistic to expect that two households can be as well off or better off than one household built from shared resources has been. You can expect property division and (if applicable) spousal support to be somewhat painful in most cases. An experienced and empathetic lawyer can help you make decisions along the way that are most likely to lead to a reasonable outcome.
Divorce Should Not Ruin You Financially If Possible
At Balduchi Law Office, PC, although we make our living through legal fees, we seek to limit expenses wherever possible for our clients who are going through divorces. If our clients cut their costs by doing some of the work themselves, we let them know of that opportunity. We typically encourage clients and their soon-to-be ex-spouses to cooperate and compromise in any ways that they can for the sake of preserving assets. We discourage clients from wasting legal fees chasing after outcomes that are unlikely to succeed — or not worth the price. In these and other ways, we continually advise our clients on ways to contain costs of a divorce.
Do Not Expect Perfection In Your Divorce Settlement Agreement
As you negotiate a divorce agreement with your spouse, keep in mind that a marital settlement cannot be perfect. Rather, your divorce agreement should be appropriate, given your and your spouse’s assets, income, expenses and child custody concerns (where applicable).
