Key Issues in a Divorce

With any divorce or legal separation, there are crucial issues that you will want to address and that a family law court will need to see are resolved. With over 32 years of successful family law practice, the Kalled Law Offices, PLLC is the firm you want contact if you are considering or are planning to divorce. Our lead attorney has worked as a member of the Board of Governors of the New Hampshire Trial Lawyers Association and is also a member of the bars of the United States Court of Appeals, the Supreme Court and the Court of Federal Claims. With the importance and wide range of concerns in any divorce, our extensive experience can benefit you and your family greatly. This is especially true at a time when the decisions you make now will affect your life and that of your family for many years to come.

In Laconia, divorce rates for both men and women run at about 15% of the population. The courts have seen the need to try to simplify and "standardize" divorce and related matters so as to streamline the large number of cases. Although this may be a good idea in principle, it is not always practical. All people and each divorce case do not necessarily fit the "mold." Our firm is different than many you will run across in that we do not subscribe to the idea that all divorces can be resolved in an identical manner. When needed, and it is in you and your family's best interest, we go outside the movement to make all cases standard and strive to provide what will truly work best in your unique case. In order to do that, it takes a firm who is knowledgeable, experienced and committed to your cause.

Whether you need to arrange a legal separation, have firmly decided to get a divorce, or are in need of a military divorce, the important factors remain the same. Was there a prenuptial or cohabitation agreement in place and if so was it properly constructed and how does it currently apply? Who will get child custody and what type is best for you and your family? Will child support or spousal support be required and how are the amounts for these determined? Additional matters of visitation and marital property rights, the potential relocation of one of the parents and other concerns will all need to be figured out and decided upon. In some cases, protection against domestic violence is required and having a skilled attorney can help to get effective actions taken quickly on your behalf.

Even when a divorce is amicable, there are aspects which require thorough thought and execution so that the future is set for all concerned. Unknowing mistakes can be made which may require further legal actions down the line. If the divorce becomes contested, it is even more vital that an accomplished Laconia divorce lawyer protect your rights and work diligently to represent your view of what should happen as a result of the divorce.

Legal Separation Versus Divorce

For some individuals, the first decision is whether they desire a legal separation or divorce. Commonly, this is done as you and your spouse desire some time apart in order to work on matters that are important to you. For others, tax or insurance purposes or religious beliefs may make separation the preferred choice. A legal separation is a contract that is undertaken with the approval of the court and permits you to stay apart for an indefinite period of time or move on to divorce proceedings. The agreements between partners must be carefully laid out so that matters such as child custody and support, division of property and spousal support are correctly resolved. When this is done, all parties are protected and if a divorce occurs later, the work we do now on your behalf can serve as a workable plan for the divorce.

The next step for some couples is to use mediation as a means to decide upon issues of the divorce, without the need or interference of a court. This process allows you and your spouse to negotiate your agreements utilizing a mediator who is practiced in how to work out relevant divorce issues. Matters that you already agree on can be made to conform with the law while others that you are currently in dispute about can be discussed and a compromise reached. It is vital to have legal representation with you throughout mediation proceedings so that your interests are well protected. Once all agreements have been made, attorneys for both parties can submit this in proper form for the court's approval.

Regardless of the issues in front of you and how you wish to see them worked out, our extensive experience should be utilized towards creating a positive situation for you and your family after the divorce is final.
