Divorce is a multifaceted challenge that causes emotional and financial stress for most couples and families. Your quality of life and financial security after divorce will likely be significantly impacted by the decisions you make during this difficult time. The need to lay a good foundation for an outcome you can live with is a large reason to choose your divorce attorney carefully.
The attorneys at Scanio & Scanio, A Professional Corporation, offer empathy as well as guidance to help you get through the legal aspects of a marital dissolution with confidence.
Representing Clients In All Divorce Scenarios
We offer practical, results-oriented legal representation for divorce covering a variety of life circumstances. Divorce typically involves the division of assets and debts accumulated over the course of the marriage. It may also include the receipt or payment of spousal support or alimony. When there are minor children, a divorce will entail some difficult but necessary deliberations regarding possession and child support.
Dividing Assets And Debts
Often, we find that couples are not able to agree on how to divide assets and debts. There may be obstacles arriving at a settlement for property division, including provisions for:
- Retirement benefits: Pensions, military pensions, 401(k) savings accounts, teachers' retirement accounts and other types of income that will come later in life
- The marital residence
- Vacation property and other special assets
- Stock accounts, stock options and margin accounts
Rather than fighting over each asset and debt, it is important to stay focused on the larger goal of reaching a fair and sustainable settlement while prioritizing the assets that are most important to you and your children.
