Divorce: Your Future Is At Stake
It is hard to imagine a more painful and challenging process than separation and divorce, especially when there are children with all types of needs and conflict within the home, as well as assets to support two households post-divorce.
At Hecht & Associates, LLC, in Rockville, Maryland, we understand how high the stakes really are. You have your family to protect, as well as your financial interests heading into your new future. Getting the divorce agreement right is critically important.
Family law cases can be decided in two ways – an agreement can be reached between the parties, or a judge can decide the disputed issues. While an agreement is always preferred, it is not always possible. If the latter is true, it is imperative that your family lawyer is experienced and aggressive in issues relating to the exchange of information between parties and third parties. Utilizing the court’s subpoena power is also incredibly important in divorce cases when there is little-to-no trust between spouses.
In order to reach a comprehensive agreement with your spouse, it is necessary to have skillful negotiators on your side to advocate for your interests. Skillful negotiation involves the ability to see the global picture, extensive knowledge of the relevant law, and the recognition of the needs and objectives of both parties. In family law, effective negotiation is the application of leverage in a way that maintains a level of balance and equity.
Unfortunately, agreements between parties when it comes to family law matters – children and finances specifically – are not always possible for a variety of reasons. This can include the reasonableness of each party and their representation, the willingness of each party to exchange relevant information, the level of conflict between the parties, differences between the parties regarding parenting and time-sharing, and each parties’ desire to protect their respective futures.
