3 Helpful Divorce Services Provided By A Family Law Attorney

Judy Alexander

Everyone wants the perfect marriage, but the truth is, things don't always work out. You and your spouse may no longer see eye-to-eye and need to go separate ways. A family law attorney can assist with a divorce by providing the following services:

Asset Distribution 

Divorces can get really heated when there's a lot of assets at stake. You want what's fair and so does your former spouse. But how do you decide who should get what in a civil manner?

That's where a family law attorney comes in handy. They can look at all of the assets in question -- be it cars or real estate -- and come up with a solution that works out for both parties. This way, resentment doesn't build from any one partner and you can walk away with a clean slate.

If both you and your former spouse want a particular asset, the attorney may recommend liquidating the asset and then splitting the proceeds. 

Child Custody Resolution 

A lot of emotions are involved during a divorce, especially when children are involved. Now comes the dilemma of deciding who gets custody of the children. Odds are, both you and the other parent want custody.

This is possible when you work with a family law attorney. They'll do their best to achieve joint custody, where you and the other parent see the children on a pre-determined schedule. If the other parent isn't fit to have custody, your attorney can build a case showing exactly why you deserve full custody. 

Out-of-Court Settlement

Divorce is one of the most stressful events to experience in life, and you don't want to make this situation worse by spending months in court going back and forth with your former spouse.

A family law attorney can prevent this from happening by helping you settle out of court. In addition to saving you time, it can save you a lot of money in legal fees.

The attorney will act as a mediator during this time, ensuring every divorce resolution is mutually agreed upon. Settling a divorce out of court is the best way for both parties to start over fresh, free of any resentments. 

Facing a divorce may seem scary and life-changing. The best thing you can do is work with a family law attorney. They'll help you resolve any lingering issues, so both you and your former spouse can part ways in a civil manner.
