Child support: A compelling reason to seek a divorce lawyer

In our blog, we talk a lot about how difficult it is to divorce without legal representation, especially when one or both spouses have a high net worth. Whether or not wealth is a factor, divorce can often bring the worst out in people, sometimes even surprising one or both divorcing parties. Throw children and the issues that go hand-in-hand with them into a high net worth divorce, and the recipe for unrest just got a little spicier than anticipated.

Resolving important issues like child support is often where a divorce attorney becomes the most valuable. For example, having a clear, educated legal mind at your disposal can help both spouses see the bigger picture when it comes to the support of their offspring. Instead of letting emotions muddy the waters, wealthy divorcing couples can rely on the knowledge and support an attorney has to offer.

Divorcing with children can be a highly complex affair. The courts will want a thorough examination and documentation of each spouse's income, which can become a nightmare in some cases. This is particularly true when either spouse receives income from multiple sources. Attorneys have a great deal of experience helping sort through all sources of income and can help either spouse acquire the proper documentation.

In the end, both parents want to make sure their children are well cared for with ample provisions to meet all of their needs. Despite media reports to the contrary, it is possible to get through the process, provide for the children and reach an equitable divorce agreement overall.
