How Does Divorce Work?

If you have been served with divorce paperwork/a divorce summons/pleadings, you may be feeling stress and anxious about facing the divorce process and the issues that will arise. One common reaction is for people to have a "get it over with" mentality. Rushing the process or burying your head in the sand could be very detrimental to the outcome of your case. During this crucial time, you will need to keep a clear head and think rationally in order to best prepare for your future.

What Is Decided In A Divorce?

One issue to resolve in a divorce is property division. The length of your marriage, the existence of a prenuptial agreement or postnuptial agreement, and the value of your assets are all factors that will be considered. It is vital that you have the guidance of a Kansas City divorce attorney from Fisher Law LLC on your side to help you through this difficult process. Additionally, an attorney from our firm will be able to counsel you as to the best course of action for your future.

Child custody can also be a difficult process. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the divorce, you may be unable to arrive on an agreement regarding custody and parenting time for your children. If this is the case, you will need an experienced advocate working on your behalf as you navigate the legal process to arrive at a resolution that is in the best interest of your children. Child custody matters should not be treated lightly as they will impact your children for the rest of their lives. It is vital for you to have counsel who can help you see the long-lasting and bigger picture when negotiating custody and parenting time.

Asset Protection For High Net Worth Couples During The Divorce Process

High net worth divorce cases often involve scores of moveable assets, real estate, inheritances, business assets, investments, retirement accounts and foreign assets. Divorce can be difficult, and when the parties have substantial assets, the stakes are higher.

When Negotiations Fail

It is ideal for a couple to reach a fair settlement agreement with the assistance of their respective attorneys. Generally, the court will accept the agreement that is reached by the parties, unless it is clear that the agreement is not equitable. 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.
