dIVORCE + PROPERTY DIVISION
You have worked hard for your success — whether that means you dedicated yourself to your work, to your family, or to both. It is only natural that you would worry about the financial implications of a divorce. When divorce is imminent, you need an attorney who can fully protect you and help advance you toward your goals.
You will need a skilled lawyer on your side who can help you and your family transition to a more positive and healthy post-divorce future — someone whose experience, knowledge of family law, talents as negotiator and litigator, and attentive personal service can move you forward.
Kristen C. Strieker represents clients who are experiencing both “contested divorces” and “uncontested divorces.” In an uncontested divorce, the parties can agree on all of the issues and need guidance negotiating and drafting the agreements, and the spousal agreement for divorce is signed before a case is even filed with the Court. In a contested divorce, the spouses are not in agreement on all the issues, and these cases start with one, or both parties filing a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage with the Court.
Do you have questions about how to proceed with your divorce? Kristen C. Strieker can help you find answers to many of the most common concerns litigants in a divorce case face:
- Are you concerned about how your family’s hard-earned assets will be divided?
- Are you concerned that if you were a stay-at-home parent, you won’t be rewarded with your fair share of the assets accumulated during your marriage? Or, that you won’t be able to financially support yourself?
- Are you concerned about protecting a business or other asset?
- Are you worried that your contributions to the marital home and family will not be recognized?
- Are you fearful your ex will try to conceal property or funds?
- Are you concerned about how you will share parenting time and decision-making responsibilities with your ex?
- Are looking for ways to resolve your divorce out of court?
- Do you have a prenuptial agreement and are wondering if it is valid?
- Do you or your spouse have several financial assets, such as retirement accounts, mutual funds, stocks, or other investments that need to be fairly divided?
- Do you or your spouse have inheritance that has been received or will be received soon?
