Who resolves marital issues?

Divorces can require a long process that needs to be completed. At this time, the lives of the two spouses needs to be separated. They will need to have their assets looked into and make decisions for this. Their children need to be taken into account as well. This can be a difficult time since it involves many sensitive issues. These issues need to be reviewed to have them resolved in order for the divorce to be made final. The divorce process can be completed through mediation or litigation. Spouses can enter into mediation sessions to resolve issues without a judge. In this process, they can work together to make decisions for their marital issues. This process can be amicable if they work together. The mediator does not make decisions but instead, they make sure the process is moving forward. If a couple enters litigation with their spouse, the process may be out of their control since a judge will be making decisions for their marital issues. This gives the judge the power to consider factors that can affect marital issues and make a final decision on the matter.

What qualifies as a marital issue?

Marital issues involve a range of factors that need to be resolved in order for a divorce to be made final. Spouses need to have these issues looked into before decisions are made. These issues include alimony, child support, child custody arrangements, the division of assets and more. These issues need to be resolved in mediation or in court. This means that custody arrangements should be decided on to facilitate co-parenting between ex-spouses. Support payments may have to be established for the children and a dependent spouse may be addressed as well. Marital assets of the couple will need to be split in a just manner. They cannot share items anymore so they must have items that are specifically owned by them now. Marital issues may prove to be a sensitive topic, especially in matters involving the children. However, they must be decided on at this time. Fortunately, they can be modified in the future if a certain arrangement is not working or if new circumstances are affecting an issue.

What Our Clients Are Saying

I hired Susan to represent me in a divorce matter where I was fighting for custody and to limit my wife's equitable share of our assets. I won custody of our son, kept the marital residence, kept my professional practice, kept my building and paid less than half to my wife. This was after a long-term marriage. She could persuade the court that equitable is not equal and sometimes the man does deserve to win!

I first must say that I had been represented by two prior attorneys both of whom had simply taken my money and left me nothing to show for it in my custody case. They kept telling me what they were doing for me but I found out they were lying. Susan on the other hand had gotten me temporary custody and support for my children and myself within two months of hiring her. I cannot say enough about her.

‐ Craig

After talking to a few other attorneys, I hired Susan to represent me in my divorce and custody dispute. I was reluctant to go with her because she was the cheapest out of all the other attorneys I met with, but I'm so glad I did. I am 100% positive no one else would have done such a great job with my case as Susan and her staff. Her work is quality, her staff is reliable and her character is honorable. There...

‐ Linda

I had a very difficult case where I had already burned through two attorneys who were unable to get me custody of my children and complete my divorce. Susan was able to rapidly work out an agreement and not let it just malinger on like my previous experiences. She was also considerate of my financial situation unlike all of the other lawyers I had spoken to. I highly recommend her if you want complete and caring service with an in-depth knowledge of...
