Divorce can be like a puzzle with constantly moving and changing parts, especially when high assets are involved and if child custody is also being litigated. The goal is to get to the end result with an agreement that both parties can live with, not be jumping for joy necessarily but they can live with it by giving some and getting some of the things they want. A client with the mindset of my way or no way, is not the type of client we work with. We tend to work with realistic individuals who want to reach a final resolution without destroying the family that once was. Some things you say can never be taken back no matter how much you wish you could.
Our team tries to find a way to complete the puzzle after figuring out what are the key elements or points each side wants and from there, we move onto topics that are unclear as to how to resolve them. Getting rid of some of the aspects in contention can help clear the way to focusing on the more important issues and hopefully resolving them. To do that, an attorney must have an understanding a tax consequences, the time value of money, consider worse case scenarios, the age and health of the parties, the parental responsibilities of each parent, among other things.
Deciding to divorce, believe it or not, is the easiest part of this whole process, the hard part is how to part ways and remain intact. To schedule an appointment with attorney Santo Artusa, Jr., Esq., contact our office today on 201-706-7910. We practice in every county in our great state.
