    What type of divorce lawyer do you need?

    Getting divorced is never easy, but a good divorce attorney can make the process easier. Since divorce laws can vary by state, along with each couple’s circumstances, it is best to keep a few factors in mind when looking for a competent attorney to handle your proceedings. The following issues may play a role.

    Reasons for Divorce

    If a couple decides to break up due to mutual incompatibility, the legal process may be relatively calm and reasonable. This is especially true if husband and wife can basically agree on how to divide household possessions and share custody of their children. However, if the divorce is because of one or both party’s problem behaviors, the legal proceedings could be complex and nasty. Another possibility is that if the couple shared a business or a great deal of real estate or other kinds of assets, the legal situation might be time-consuming and very detailed. These issues will make a difference in the type of attorney to work with for a divorce.

    Children

    Married couples with children have more issues to deal with than those without offspring. Shared custody is often the goal, with parents having equal access to the children or one parent being the custodial parent and the other getting visiting rights. A shared parenting plan will be encouraged by the court, preferably one that parents can develop together. If they are unable to agree, the court may assign a mediator or children’s advocate to help outline a plan that serves the children’s best interests. It is best to hire an attorney with experience in these matters.

    Assets

    A couple that has accrued substantial assets during the marriage or who have shared a business or real estate holdings may need the services of an attorney that specializes in this type of divorce proceeding. Division of assets, trust funds, and sell-offs require finesse to ensure the represented party receives his or her share to which he or she is entitled under the law.

    No two divorce attorneys are the same, although they both have similar understanding of the state laws that govern divorce. Contact  Ronald L. Kossack who is experienced with the specific issues that are relevant to your divorce proceedings.
