When a marriage is drawing to a close, it can be difficult to know where to turn. There can be much confusion and uncertainty; such as who gets the house, where will our children live, what parenting rights do I have, will I have to pay or receive child support and how much will that be, will I receive or pay spousal maintenance, what will happen to my retirement account, and can I keep the assets I had before marriage or that I have inherited or received as a gift during marriage.
Turning to a skilled and experienced family law attorney can help you understand and navigate those obstacles that stand between you and your future.
Experience In Helping Our Clients Secure Economical And Effective Solutions
At Aho Law Office, P.A., we bring years of experience that allows us to help our clients who are facing divorce. We know how challenging it can be to transition from marriage to single life, and we work to make that transition as simple and economical as possible for our clients.
In addition to divorce, we also represent clients on such related issues as:
- Child custody and support
- Property division
- Spousal support
- Domestic violence/orders for protection
Working Out Details Ahead of Time Offers Substantial Savings
Divorce can be costly when conflict occurs. If a judge has to intervene to settle a dispute, it is going to raise the cost of the divorce. For couples looking to save money, working out details in advance avoids many costs. We can help you understand how to secure the most cost-effective divorce available and can cost-effectively draft joint divorce decrees when you and your spouse agree on the issues. In many cases, drafting a divorce decree yourself might cost less up front, but mistakes or misunderstanding of the facts or law can result in increased cost to fix mistakes later, or an unfair settlement to you. Let us review with you your proposed settlement, and advise you whether it is fair and legal, and in the best interests of your children. We might be able to show you how a different settlement can benefit both parties.
Division of Assets and Debts
Often the most valuable asset a person has is his or her retirement. We draft individualized domestic relations orders (DROs) and qualified domestic relations orders (QDROs) for our clients when appropriate. These are the court orders that properly divide retirement accounts based on the portion of the account accumulated during marriage. This individualized attention helps ensure a well-tailored division of assets.
If you are facing the possibility of divorce, we can help you navigate that difficult process. Let our skill and experience work to help you become ready to begin writing the next chapter of your life. To schedule a free initial consultation, call 612-271-4047 or simply contact us online.
