Financial Support

During a divorce, the assets and liabilities of the couple will be divided between them. This typically involves liquidating or dividing any joint assets, such as bank accounts, investments, real estate, vehicles, and other property.

Both parties must also agree on the division of any debts or liabilities, including credit card debt, mortgages, and any loans. In some cases, one party may be required to pay spousal or child support to the other for a certain period of time.

 01 Understand your options

Before filing for divorce, it is important to understand the all of the possibilities that are available to you.  It is important that parents can come to an agreement as to where the children will live, how decisions will be made for the children, spousal support, and division of marital property.  We encourage you to book a free, no obligation, consultation prior to initiating any process.  The decisions you make will have a massive impact on the outcome so how you proceed is vitally important.  You can't possibly understand something that you have never been through before.  Invest the time now so you can ensure a solid future for you and your children.

02 Choose the Filing Status

The filing status will determine the type of documentation and paperwork needed to file for a joint divorce(parties file together making the process easier), a party files on their own(this means they have to “serve” the other party the documents, making it more difficult).  Many people feel that they are left without choices and can easily be led astray due to misinformation.  This situation needs to be handled with the care it deserves.  The best advise we can give at this time is "if you are going to end things, end things well".  Getting support will make all the difference as their are many challenges to navigate and it is an overwhelming time.

03 Collect Documentation

Gather all necessary documents such as birth certificates, marriage certificates, and financial documents.  Many people can find this task overwhelming and at this point in time, think that if they hire a lawyer, that they will simply look after this.  This is simply not true and can carry huge financial consequences.  We can help you understand your responsibilities and support you so that you save time, money and your valuable resources.  We can help you avoid all of the pitfalls that many individuals fall into.  Our mission is to empower and educate.

04 Separation Agreement

A separation agreement is a document that outlines the details of the divorce. This includes important information such as decision making for the children, parenting time, spousal support, and division of assets.  Having a comprehensive separation agreement can relieve much of the conflict and anxiety around the separation.  Once decisions are made, life gets easier and you can put your energy into more important building your new life.

05 File Divorce, Attend hearings

Once the divorce paperwork is prepared, the couple must file the documents with the court.  Couples must be separated for one full year before they are allowed to file for divorce. If couples are unable to agree, the couple may be required to attend court hearings to finalize the divorce.  This can be a very lengthy, time consuming and stressful process.

06 Final Divorce Certificate

Once the court approves the divorce, the couple will receive a final divorce certificate.
