Alimony

There is no set formula to determine when, or if, a party should receive alimony (spousal support) from a divorcing spouse. In determining alimony the courts will consider the needs of the party requesting alimony, the ability of that party to provide for his or her own needs, and the ability of the other divorcing party to pay alimony.

Modifications

Simply stated, mediation is a non-binding forum for a divorcing couple to work out the terms of their divorce with the help of a trained mediation specialist. The only requirement of mediation is that a party attend and make a good faith effort at resolution.

Division of Retirement

When a Court grants a decree of divorce, it will also address the parties’ rights with respect to the assets they acquired during their marriage. This includes retirement assets, such as 401(k) accounts, IRAs, and pensions.

Guardianship

A guardian helps an individual care for their physical well-being while a conservator helps an individual handle their financial affairs. By appointing a guardian and/or conservator, you are providing your loved one with the assistance of someone who cares in order to help them handle day to day matters and to make important legal decisions.
