Legal Issues of Divorce You Need to Discuss with an Attorney?

The divorce process can be overwhelming and emotionally exhausting for the persons involved. And so, whether you are going for a contested divorce or an uncontested one, you must enlist the help of an experienced attorney, as he can make the process a lot smoother.  

Most importantly, you can discuss and get guidance on the several legal issues of divorce with your attorney. But before such discussion, make sure you have along with you a host of documents to show to your legal counsel during the meeting. Some of these documents include the following:

  • Prenuptial agreements
  • Proof of current income
  • Property tax statements
  • Stock portfolios and stock options
  • Bank statements
  • Loan documents
  • Credit card statements
  • Utility bills
  • Mortgages
  • Separation agreement
  • Auto insurance policies
  • Homeowner policies, etc.

Now, let’s have a glance at the three most important divorce legal issues to discuss with your attorney:

  1. Child support

One of the most important divorce issues that you should discuss with your lawyer is the one that involves children. Besides, you will surely have questions about child support arrangements, child custody (legal and physical), and visitation rights to name a few important ones – that you may need to be clear about.

  1. Alimony or maintenance support

Spousal support (also called alimony or maintenance) is another common, yet important, legal issue of divorce that you must discuss with your legal professional. And, this discussion should include which spouse is entitled to provide financial support and how long it will last.

  1. Property issues

Discussion in relation to property issues is also very important. Keep in mind, while property owned by you prior to the marriage will lawfully belong to you, but self-acquired assets before separation – are often subject to equal rights.

An experienced divorce lawyer will make sure to answer all your property related questions surrounding equity in property, personal property, business assets, savings accounts, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, retirement benefits, and many other topics.

Note: The three issues discussed above may vary from case to case.
