Last week's post on the blog discussed the financial ramifications of a gray divorce. The truth of the matter, though, is that divorce can rock your finances regardless of your age, gender, length of marriage, or economic standing. The way that you handle the property division process can make all the difference, determining whether or not you have a firm financial foundation for life post-divorce.
There are many ways to handle property division. Oftentimes the parties are able to negotiate an agreement. In order for this process to be fair, though, an individual needs to have a firm understanding of the assets in play and how to fight for their fair share of assets. A number of factors play into negotiations, including the length of the marriage and the sacrifices the parties made for the purposes of raising a family. If negotiations fail, then a judge who hears evidence and makes a determination on the matter will divide property. In these instances, you need a strong litigator on your side.
Regardless of the route your divorce takes with regard to property division, in order to be successful you need to be informed of the facts at hand, the law, and how the two play off of each other. At the Marin Law Firm, we know how to aggressively pursue outcomes that are right for our clients. This may mean finding ways to engage in forensic accounting, take depositions, be creative at the negotiation table, and advocate in court. We are diligent throughout the divorce process, which allows our clients to make decisions that further their best interests.
Going through divorce isn't easy, of course, and oftentimes judgment is clouded by emotions. This is another reason to consider seeking the assistance of skilled legal professional when considering marriage dissolution. At the end, our firm's goal is to leave our client's well situated to start a new chapter in their lives. We have a record of successfully doing so and are happy to continue to do so for our Orlando-area clients.
