Divorce can be a difficult process, even under the best of circumstances. Aside from the emotional issues, there are many legal issues that must be resolved, including housing, debts, the division of assets, and spousal support.

You’ve probably seen the divorce process represented on TV in a lot of different ways. From the movies to divorce court reality shows, these onscreen dramas often portray the divorce process much differently than it plays out in real life. Some people in Northwest Indiana might believe they can easily represent themselves in a divorce battle, but the fact is divorce is not something to take chances with. Your future is at stake, including your financial well-being, the custody and support of your children, spousal support, and how your property will be divided.
If you’re going through a divorce, we know that you will likely have many questions concerning matters of immediate consequence such as:
Property Division – Every divorce will include important decisions about dividing the couple’s property, but there are many factors that will play a part in how this is done. We ensure that you receive the fair amount to which you are legally entitled.
Divorce Modifications -- Couples might agree on the settlement parameters in the beginning, that doesn’t mean that those parameters will always be the best. Sometimes divorce agreements need adjustments.
Child Custody – All aspects of divorce can be difficult, the toughest is deciding the custody of your children. We will explore all the options and help you determine what custody situation is best for your case.
Child Support – When one parent ends up being the custodial parent, there is a chance that the non-custodial parent will be ordered to pay child support. We make sure that the amount of child support is determined accurately and fairly.
Spousal Support – Many divorce cases involve one spouse paying spousal support (also known as spousal maintenance or alimony) to the other party. There are many different aspects and guidelines that go into determining spousal support and every divorce is unique.
Visitation/Parenting Time – When one parent ends up with full legal custody, in almost all instances the other parent is still entitled to visitation rights or parenting time. We will help ensure that the right guidelines are set up for your parenting time circumstances.
