Why It’s Important to Find a Specialized Divorce Attorney

By Leslie Fineberg on May 26, 2015

Divorce LawyersNo two divorces are identical. Even though about half of all marriages end in divorce, each case is unique. Only you know what unique issues are important to you and your spouse. You may have property, custody issues, and other complications on the horizon that will require attention. Therefore, a one-size-fits-all divorce attorney will not fit your specific needs.

Even the most cordial of separations can get messy. Negotiations can become complicated when money, property, and children are involved. Your goals for the future may differ significantly from your spouse, so you may have to fight for your best interests. Remember that you have rights and your opinion matters.

Your specialized Chicago divorce attorney can review the specific details of your divorce and help you:

  • Negotiate who has final say regarding medical, educational, and religious decisions for your child.
  • Calculate and determine the appropriate levels of maintenance and child support.
  • Evaluate and divide family businesses.
  • Discover and review hidden assets.
  • Determine cash-income and how it should be divided.
  • Consider loss of assets related to drugs, alcohol, and gambling.
  • Help you come to a successful resolution.

There are many difficult issues that arise during a marriage. Arguing over finances, the upbringing of your children, and the running of your household may have contributed to your separation. Having to dig up all of these issues again may prove stressful. This is why you need a specialized attorney who can help guide you through the process. Many of these complicated conversations can take place between attorneys so that you won’t have the burden of arguing with your spouse.

Before you even begin to discuss the division of property with your spouse, make sure you speak with a Chicago divorce attorney who understands your situation. Discuss the specifics of your case and what is important to you. Ideally, your separation will go amicably and efficiently so that you can start your new life stress free.
