Helping You Find Legal Solutions To Divorce Issues
As a divorce lawyer, I understand going through the end of a marriage is one of the most challenging times of your life – a time when you also must make many legal decisions quickly. With an eye on how these affect your future, I can empower and guide you through the divorce process.
By building a close attorney-client relationship, I will have a better understanding of your personal needs and legal goals and how I can help you to resolve your divorce settlement while protecting your parental rights. Family law issues like divorce deserve a certain attention, care and approach. At my firm, the Law Offices of Nicole Alvarez P.A., I can give you and your family quality, legal representation.
Divorce Proceedings And How To Protect Your Legal Rights
I will assist you in understanding your legal options and how to proceed in your case while protecting your rights, particularly when you and your spouse disagree. I see the bigger picture of your situation and know what aspects of divorce can cause problems for people in the years after ending a marriage.
It is imperative to consult a qualified lawyer when you have assets and property in your marriage. Property division becomes complex when couples must consider assets like savings accounts, real estate, business interests, investments and retirement funds. Also, having minor children with your spouse means you must work to resolve time-sharing or child custody matters, such as child support, parenting plans and visitation.
Smart Preparation Through Marital Agreements
A property settlement agreement is a contract entered into by a married couple who intend to be divorced that states who will be responsible for the assets, debts and obligations acquired during the marriage. It can include terms of custody and visitation. However, some couples choose to separate custody in a second agreement, usually referred to as a custody and visitation agreement.
Attempting to prepare your own agreement can compromise the protection of your interests. You may not realize the implications of agreeing to certain provisions, or you may unintentionally exclude a necessary condition. I have the experience necessary to ensure that you enter into agreements that protect your current and future interests.
When both parties sign a property settlement agreement, it is considered a contract. When it is filed with the court, and a judge endorses a final order of divorce, it becomes a court order as an attachment to the divorce order. There are options to enforce an existing agreement if necessary. If you have difficulty enforcing your property settlement agreement, I can assist you with enforcing your agreement.
What You Need To Know About Prenuptial And Postnuptial Agreements
No matter how in love and optimistic one feels going into a marriage, there always remains the possibility of divorce or death. No one wants these sad events to occur. But if they do, having a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement helps you maintain a voice in the division of assets and other arrangements the state otherwise controls.
These agreements also provide peace of mind, clarity, transparency and a sense of control at a time in marriage when making decisions proves easier and peaceful. Although celebrities and the wealthy paved the way for the popularity of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, anyone can have one. You do not need to have many assets or substantial income. Instead, these agreements help you protect what you have going into a marriage, just as they protect what you build throughout your time as a couple.
A prenup protects your children’s financial future, estates or inheritances. It also protects your business, intellectual property, inheritance, retirement plan, trusts and holdings before or after matrimony. You can ensure a spouse’s debt does not affect your financial standing after marriage, too.
I can help you understand what a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement can do for you and represent you throughout the process. I can also draft a confidential, secure agreement specifying the division of assets, debt and an estate before or after you walk down the aisle.
