Step by Step Guidance Through the Process
A divorce can be extremely emotional for everyone involved, and also result in a significant change in your financial situation. When the family dynamic is being altered there are many adjustments that have to be made, especially when children are involved.
I, Juliann Karenko, have been counseling families through this strenuous and taxing process for 30 years and I am here to remind you that you are not alone.
Maybe you have been a stay-at-home mother for years and now you have no idea how you will support your family on your own. Or maybe you are a loving father worried that your rights may be compromised in court due to unfair assumptions of the gender roles. Perhaps neither of the guardians are fit to be parents and you want to exercise your grandparent rights and gain custody of your grandchildren.
No divorce is ever the same and there is no "cookie cutter" solution to your family matter, each family has different needs. That is where I come in, an experienced divorce lawyer will listen to goals and objectives, advise you as to the proper plan of action and then work vigorously to turn those goals into a reality.
Many decisions will need to be made concerning property division, alimony/spousal support, child custody, child support, and visitation. As with anything, the court will most likely rule in favor of the best interests of the child.
If you are seeking a contested divorce, The Karenko Law Firm PLLC can help you work out agreements with your spouse, and litigate any conflicts. In a contested divorce, it is recommended that you seek representation to protect your rights, interests and the welfare of your children.
Factors to Consider During a Divorce
Even when both parties agree to a divorce, conflicts can arise that a skilled attorney can help resolve. Disagreements often occur in regards to asset division and alimony. There may even be disputes regarding child custody, support, and visitation.
When the issue concerns a child's upbringing, the court will look at several factors, including:
- The age and health of each spouse
- The duration of the marriage
- Each spouse's current income and future income potential
- What is in the best interests of the child
- Any past history of parental abuse or neglect
- What the child wants
- What each spouse desires
