Getting divorced is a painful process and anyone who tells you otherwise is lying. Not only is it emotionally taxing to split from someone with whom you've spent a large part of your life, but now you have to hash out details like child custody, spousal support, and property division.
Issues such as marital property and child custody need to be discussed in-depth to avoid conflict down the road. If both spouses equally contributed to the acquisition of marital property, then common sense dictates that such assets should be divided equally after a comprehensive valuation of assets.
In most cases, spouses prefer to get through the divorce settlement as quickly as possible. However, doing so can ultimately lead to the inequitable division of assets. In such a scenario, the breadwinner in the marriage can conceal bank accounts and lucrative assets through untraceable offshore companies.
The effects of an inequitable divorce settlement can haunt you for several years. Despite appearing as a once-in-a-lifetime deal, such an agreement might not sufficiently cater to your long-term needs.
If you are going through a complex property division, then you may want to contact an experienced divorce attorney. At Barker Law Firm, PC, we have years of experience helping people get what they deserve in the split.
