Divorce property division: Beware of retirement account fees

Regardless if one lives in Pennsylvania or elsewhere, fees may accompany the division of certain assets when going through the divorce process. While there are plenty of things that can go through property division without any added fees of penalties, retirement accounts are not among them. The company handling the transfer of funds from one 401(k) or other retirement account to another has the right to charge a processing fee.

When it comes to your divorce don't hate, collaborate

The dissolution of marriage is a stressful process. Anyone who has been or is going through it would tell you this. It simply is the nature of divorce. There are alternatives to traditional divorce proceedings, though, that can make this daunting thing a little easier to handle. Collaborative law is an option for couples in Pennsylvania who wish to end their marriages. What is this and how can it be beneficial to you?

The guidance you need for property division concerns

Divorce comes with numerous financial issues, and it is normal for anyone in Pennsylvania considering this major step to have serious concerns regarding money and asset protection. We understand these concerns, and we have the extensive experience required to effectively navigate property division issues and lay the foundation for a strong post-divorce future. If you have questions about money and divorce, it can be useful to understand which factors may impact your final divorce order.

Making child custody work after divorce is final

Divorce can be hardest on the youngest members of the family. That is why many parents in Pennsylvania, despite the emotional struggle these proceedings can entail, resolve to work together on a child custody agreement rather than leaving the final decision up the court. Any custody or visitation schedule should be workable for the parents and beneficial for the children.

Protecting your rights in property division matters

It is normal to feel a strong attachment to possessions, especially during an emotional and difficult time, such as during a divorce. If you have concerns about what will happen to your stuff or believe that your spouse may be hiding assets, you need a Pennsylvania lawyer who knows how to effectively navigate complicated property division matters. With the right help, you can secure a final settlement that is fair and equitable.

How should one prepare for a high asset divorce?

As the end of a marriage will bring significant financial changes, it can be useful to begin preparing for this step as soon as possible. The appropriate steps taken even before the end of a marriage can help to avoid unnecessary disputes and litigation. It can be an emotional, difficult journey, but there is much at stake in a high asset divorce.

We can help you reach a child custody agreement that works

Pennsylvania parents are understandably concerned with protecting the well-being of their children during and after their divorce. One of the best ways to ensure that they enjoy stability and continuity of lifestyle is through a child custody plan that is workable and beneficial for all members of the family. You may not be able to secure a custody order that meets all of your expectations, but with compromise and qualified legal guidance, we can help your family reach a reasonable solution.
