We Know The Impact That Your Divorce Can Have
Your divorce is a taxing time, both emotionally and financially. Not only do you face the end of your marriage, but you also face many financial challenges. From the division of your property to the establishment of spousal support and child support, your comfort and your finances also must be protected.
It is essential to have an experienced attorney available to protect your rights, your property and your future financial interests. At Rome Clifford Katz & Koerner LLP, our family law attorneys have served the people of Hartford County and beyond for decades, and we have built our reputation on creating successes for our clients. We will work with you to fully understand the marriage dissolution process and the impact that your divorce will have on your life. We will aggressively defend your interests so that you can move forward from your divorce in the best financial position possible.
How Can I Protect My Property?
During the division of property, you may find that your situation becomes more financially precarious. Marital property – the property that can be divided over the course of your divorce – can include:
- Real estate
- Retirement savings
While this may seem straightforward, many things can be considered marital property even if they are not officially in the name of both spouses. Marital property can even include property that you owned before your marriage, depending on the events that occurred during your marriage.
With your finances and property at stake, you want to work with an attorney who has the experience and knowledge necessary to represent your rights and ensure that you are treated fairly. With more than three decades of experience and a history of participating both as representatives of one spouse and as mediators, we will work to make your divorce proceed as smoothly as possible. We will negotiate to limit the impact that the end of your marriage has on your finances, create fair solutions for child support and custody, and fight for your rights in court if negotiations fall through.
Will I Have To Pay Alimony?
Depending on your financial situation, courts may award alimony as a part of your divorce. Alimony is also called spousal support, and it is awarded according to a variety of factors, including:
- The length of the marriage
- The medical needs of each person
- The income of each person, including marital decisions that may have impacted their earning potential
- Child support
- Marital property received in the divorce
While all of these factors can come in play, there is one more factor that can be an important part of determining alimony: your attorney. The skill of your attorney can determine whether alimony is awarded, how much alimony is granted and how long those payments must be maintained.
