While any divorce can bring with it a variety of changes and new considerations to your life, one of the most important actions you can take during your Morris County divorce is to work with a financial consultant and a financial planner. This is for a wide variety of reasons (which we will discuss below), but the good news is that our Morris County divorce attorneys regularly consult with exactly these types of professionals.
So not only can we recommend you the services of effective and knowledgeable financial consultants, we will also easily be able to integrate their work with you into your divorce settlement agreements such as child support, alimony, and the division of assets in order to ensure that these agreements are fair to you, and accurately reflect your unique financial needs and concerns.
Your Finances and Your Divorce Settlement Agreements, Chester Divorce Lawyers
Before we can even begin the negotiation process for key divorce issues like child support, alimony, and marital asset division, we will first need to make a thorough assessment of both you and your spouse's assets, debts, income, and expenditures. It is important that you fully understand the value of the assets you possess such as your home, and other complex assets such as residential or commercial properties, your family business or any business interests you may have, and assets such as bank accounts, investments, retirement funds, or stocks.
In addition, it is also important to have an accurate understanding of any debts you may hold individually or jointly with your spouse. By accurately valuing these assets and debts, our Chester divorce lawyers can better work towards securing divorce settlements which are fair to you, and help you set the building blocks for a successful financial future moving forward. Beyond the critical nature of valuing these assets and debts in order to reach fair divorce agreements, if those same assets and debts are inaccurately valued at the time of your divorce, it opens the door for a number of potentially expensive and stressful post-divorce proceedings down the road if and when it is discovered that your divorce agreements were based on inaccurate information.
Planning for Your Financial Future after Divorce, Chatham Divorce Attorneys
So not only can working with financial consultants and planners help our Chatham divorce attorneys to secure you the divorce settlement agreements which accurately reflect you and your family's financial situation and needs, it will then also allow you to begin planning for your financial future moving forward.
What expenses can you expect to have? How much financial support can you expect to pay or receive for some of those expenses? Will you need to sell some of your assets in order to cover these expenses, or potentially seek new or further employment? How will your divorce settlement agreements affect your personal finances moving forward?
These are all extremely important questions to ask, and have answered, in order to make the most informed financial decisions possible moving forward.
