DIVORCE AS A POSITIVE EXPERIENCE IS NOT UNREALISTIC
Divorce does not have to be stressful! Although it is one of the most trying experiences a couple can go through, whether or not children are involved, the Rudyuk Law Firm will provide counsel and guide you to favorable, positive results in ending the marriage without facing the prospect of financial or emotional disaster.
It is critical that clients know their legal rights, understand all of their options, and evaluate all possible outcomes. Our attorneys provide unparalleled assistance in all legal aspects of ending a marriage or partnership, including contested and uncontested divorces, and everything from a settlement to complex litigation.
Spousal maintenance, or alimony, is mandated by state statute and is determined by as many as twenty factors including income and assets, the length of marriage, the parties’ age and health, and where the children live.
We help clients obtain the amount of support necessary to keep their lives on track or, in cases where clients have been ordered to pay spousal support, we will make sure the amount is as limited as possible, so they do not suffer a financial burden.
Division of Property
The property and assets to be distributed upon the dissolution of a marriage are either separate or marital. Separate property is exempt from distribution and remains the property of the original owner. This includes property or assets acquired before the marriage or given as a gift or inheritance. Marital property includes assets acquired after the marriage, such as businesses, inheritances and even debt. In dividing the property – “equitable distribution” – a number of factors will be considered, including the length of the marriage and each spouse’s contribution to the marriage before the divorce.
With our competence and expertise in the equitable distribution of assets, we can help eliminate the stress of divorce by assisting couples in making decisions fairly and amicably, or, if litigation is necessary, in achieving the best possible outcome.
