The decision to partner with divorce attorneys who are experienced in handling complex divorce matters becomes paramount in protecting your future, your family’s future, property accumulated throughout your career, and your personal and professional reputation.

Cases in Point

Successful, hard-working individuals often face allegations of earning a greater income than they actually do, and in such instances, it is crucial to have engaged the services of experienced family law and business attorneys familiar with counteracting such legal tactics in order to achieve a fair outcome.

Economically disadvantaged spouses need immediate and significant financial support throughout the divorce process in order to continue paying family and household monthly expenses. Each spouse needs the financial wherewithal to pay legal expenses in order to prevent the opposing party from exploiting a financial disparity and achieving a one-sided result.

Spouses facing the end of a decades-long marriage after primarily serving as homemakers often rely on receiving alimony from their spouse on a long-term basis so they can continue to comfortably live their lives and adjust to the economic realities of life after divorce.

Given the contested nature of complex or high-profile matters, divorce can get nasty. Partnering with family law attorneys who also practice in defamation and privacy law can facilitate upholding your standing in the community as you undergo a rigorous discovery process. Cole Law Group divorce attorneys emphasize the importance of discreetly managing your case in a manner that maintains and protects your privacy while also safeguarding your reputation and integrity.

Selling or splitting business assets can make a divorce tricky. You need to know what your rights are and how to position yourself so your ex-spouse does not become your business partner.

Military divorce is very specific and must be handled by an attorney with extensive knowledge of military law. Jurisdiction and the division of retirement assets are significant considerations.

Lastly, but most importantly, when children are involved in divorce, their welfare and emotional health must be the number one priority.
