Does it Matter Who Files for Divorce First?

While there is no legal advantage in doing so, filing for divorce first can present a multitude of benefits:

  • Preparation – you will have more time to assemble your team of legal experts as well as gather your finances & documentation.
  • Hidden Assets -by filing first, you have a better chance at preventing your spouse from hiding money or property.
  • Location – if issues such as child custody are in play, filing first will allow you to select the jurisdiction. Being able to select the county or city in which the case will be heard can have tactical advantages.
  • First Impressions – you will be able to speak first if the case goes to trial. This is especially important if litigation is expected.

What to Seek in a Divorce Settlement

When you retain our services, our lawyers will break down everything you need to know about your upcoming divorce. While we will put you on the right path for success, there are several key issues that you can seek in your settlement.

  • The House – a home is one of the most expensive assets you can buy as a couple. Ensure your best interests are protected by retaining our legal counsel.
  • Life & Health Insurance – Will a divorce cancel your insurance policy? If so, you will need financial support to cover this expense.
  • Retirement Funds – If you are nearing the age of retirement, it’s important to protect the funds you are owed. Any divorce can cancel Social Security benefits for the other spouse.
  • Parenting & Custody Time – Unless you have been ruled to be “unfit to parent”, you should be allotted custody time. Our attorneys will work diligently with you to ensure this happens.

What Does a Family Lawyer Do Exactly?

A family lawyer does exactly what their name implies, they focus on family law issues specifically, allowing them to specialize in their niche. A family lawyer can choose to litigate, negotiate, or both. Being that they help families of a wide variety, family law attorneys who are able to emphasize and relate to their clients have the most success. Our Duluth family law attorneys not only have the experience to defend you in court, but the compassion you won’t see in many other law firms.
