Reaching a Final Divorce Decree

Before a divorce can be finalized, the several important issues must be satisfactorily resolved. These issues can be resolved through mutual cooperation by the couple or through the courts. In either case, it will benefit the divorcing spouses to retain the services of a divorce lawyer employed by a reputable law firm. A divorce lawyer will endeavor to ensure that each spouse's wishes are taken into consideration and their rights are protected. Whether the final divorce decree is determined though mediation or litigation, a divorce attorney's expertise will be quite useful. The four main issues in divorce include:

Property division – this includes both assets and liabilities
Child support – how much money is to be paid to the custodial parent each month
Child custody – legal custody, physical custody, sole custody, joint custody
Spousal support – how much money is to be paid to a spouse each month, if any
These issues can be quite contentious and may be very complex. Experienced and skilled divorce lawyers can help divorcing couples navigate these controversial issues and hopefully reach a conclusion that will be satisfactory to all involved. Divorce lawyers may encourage couples to use mediation to reach the terms of the divorce. Couples that work cooperatively to determine the terms of their divorce are generally more satisfied with the outcome of their divorce than those that are involved in litigation.

Deadbeat Dad Laws

Even though financial support is vital for many custodial parents and while child support is ordered and required from the court, some unreliable and careless parents decline to pay their fair share. All parties are affected negatively by this transgression; the spouse who has to get by with less financial assistance, the children who are not properly cared for due to the lack of funds, and even the taxpayers who must fund the legal proceedings to force the irresponsible parents to fall in line. Even the parent refusing to pay will often experience negative repercussions from these actions.

Family support

Obtaining child support payments can frequently be a grueling and complex process. There is a various amount of procedure options that parents can take advantage of in order to get the child support that is owed to them. The most typical way is to go to a judge and request a court order that will demand payment from a delinquent parent to pay the amount of child support payments that they owe. If they still won't do so, some states permit the courts to garnish income, intercept tax refunds, and even take away the drivers licenses of irresponsible parents who neglect to make timely child support payments to the custodial parent.

Consider retaining the services of a Family Law attorney to resolve your dispute. With the help of a Family Law attorney, you can settle your dispute quickly and efficiently.
