Several previous posts on this blog talked about mistakes men commonly make during the course of a divorce or legal separation, and, to some extent, other family law matters.
For instance, some men might use the occasion as a time to get a new, lower paying job, but that can create bad legal fallout as well as financial problems. Likewise, another post discussed how a man may not want to try to hang on to the house, as doing so can turn out to be a bad financial move, particularly if one cannot afford the upkeep.
Men who make these mistakes are not ill-informed or even really different than anyone else in the general population who does not deal with family law issues on a daily basis. Divvying up property is a difficult task and innocent and, sometimes, not-so-innocent mistakes are common, particularly when one’s emotions are high.
This is one reason why many husbands and fathers trust their cases to the knowledge and experience of the attorney at our law office.
With over 20 years of experience in family law and, more specifically, father’s rights, we have had ample opportunities to successfully guide men through the process of property division, and we can advise them on the appropriate steps to take, and avoid, as they try to protect their interests and secure a fair distribution of the assets and debts.
We have handled cases of all types, from those where the division of property was relatively simple to large marital estates that required a multi-faceted and complicated investigation and evaluation of assets and debts. We have, for instance, worked closely with other experts when evaluating the worth of businesses, pensions and other valuable property.
