Kansas City Divorce Attorney
How does divorce work?
If you have been served divorce papers then you may be feeling stress and anxiety about facing the divorce process and the many issues that will arise. One major tendency under stress is for people to have a “get it over with” mentality. This could be very detrimental to your future if you rush the process. During this time, you will need to keep a clear head and think rationally in order to best prepare for your future.
What needs to be decided upon in a divorce?
One issue to resolve in divorce is that of property division. Depending on how many years you have been married, whether a prenuptial agreement or a postnuptial agreement is involved and how valuable your assets are to you could all be factors that make a difficult situation even harder. It is vital that you have the legal aid of a Kansas City divorce attorney from Fisher Law LLC on your side to help you through this difficult process and to defend you against unjust demands from any other party involved. Additionally, a representative from our firm will be able to counsel you as to the best options for you and your future, and what areas not to compromise in.
Child custody can also be a difficult process. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the divorce, you may not want your significant other to have custody at all of your children.

Asset Protection During the Divorce Process
Divorce is rarely “easy” on anyone, and when the spouses are wealthy, the stakes are higher and the parties stand to lose substantially more in a contested divorce.

- Each of our attorneys have years of legal experience handling cases in Missouri and Kansas.
When Negotiations Fail
It is considered ideal for a couple to reach a fair settlement agreement with the assistance of their respective attorneys. Generally, the court will accept whatever agreement that is reached by the spouses, unless it is very obvious that one of the spouses is walking away with the lion’s share.
If the parties cannot work together to settle their property disputes, the court will divide the property based on a number of factors designed to render an equitable result.
