Determining the Correct Approach to a Divorce
When you, or your souse, decide that you can no longer live together as husband or wife, emotions run high and in spite of your best combined efforts, disagreements will occur during the divorce process.
No one divorce goes through the exact same process and not all divorces are amicable. At Goldstein & Scopellite, PC our attorneys are aware that going through a divorce, like being married, is a unique experience and it may take time to work through the issues in order to reach an agreement as to property division, child support, who will have custody of your children and as to the division of your debts, and so that a final order can be entered. Our divorce attorneys are experienced. We will work with your spouse’s attorney (or your spouse) to bring all issues to the fore-front so that an agreement can be reached amicably and so that the divorce process can be expedited, as quickly as possible. However, in the event of a disagreement, our divorce lawyers will work through the issues and suggest alternative methods of reaching an agreement, such as going through the mediation process. With the founders of Goldstein & Scopellite, PC both being trained mediators, our firm will ensure that your rights are protected during the mediation process and that your issues are brought to the table. And, if you and your spouse cannot make an agreement by alternative settlement methods, and if your case requires going through the complete litigation process, our attorneys at Goldstein & Scopellite, PC are prepared and experienced litigators and we will move forward and litigate your case aggressively. We understand that there is no “one” solution that works for everyone and our well-trained divorce attorneys are prepared for all eventualities.
Issues in an Uncontested Divorce
Clearly, for most couples, an uncontested divorce is a much better option, rather than fighting between the parties, both emotionally and financially. However, even though neither party is disagreeing as to how things should be divided or handled, this does not mean that you should not be without legal representation or legal counsel. If you have an uncontested divorce, the divorce attorneys at Goldstein & Scopellite, PC will review your agreement, your family situation and your assets and debts and we will make sure that your interests are protected, not only as to settlement made and we will ensure that the final Decree or Order entered is drafted and./or was prepared correctly. The attorneys at Goldstein & Scopellite, PC will draft and file with the court all of the appropriate documents in keeping with your settlement and they will make sure that the divorce process goes as quickly and as smoothly as possible, so that you both can get on with your lives.
When a Divorce is Contested
Unfortunately, when a marriage is ending and the divorce is either not welcomed by one of the parties or there are issues to be resolved regarding disputes over your community property and debts and/or your children, there will be many hurdles to overcome during the divorce process and before a settlement of your marital issues can be reached and the parties can move forward. These differences can be significant and can include disagreements over parenting time with your children, child support, legal decision- making regarding the children and division of eligible property and debts. In each of these areas of the law, there are specific requirements to determining how division is obtained; how child support is determined and who will pay it; as to whether spousal maintenance is available or not; and as to what qualifies as community property or your community estate.
