Divorce can be a frustrating, painful and stressful time whether your divorce is relatively simple or a high conflict, complicated divorce. Hiring a divorce attorney can help make the process less painful by allowing the divorce attorney to deal with the legal issues and the legal process to set you up for a brighter future. Divorce attorney Adam Kielich will work with you to design a property division that protects your financial and legal rights and build a custody arrangement that protects your relationship with your children.

Let’s talk about how I can help you.
Your needs in a divorce
Divorce is about more than just ending the marriage. It’s about arranging the future of the soon-to-be-ex-spouses and the children. The key issues to address in your marriage are:
Stability during the divorce process: While the divorce is ongoing there needs to be an arrangement to ensure the parents have access to the children and they are cared for. In a divorce it is typically to seek temporary orders from the court for these purposes.
Dealing with assets and debts: You acquired property and debts during the divorce that are jointly owned by both spouses. Dividing this property is not just about cutting everything in half. There are meaningful ways to divide property to maximize the rights of each party and fairly divide liability for debts.
Custody and the co-parenting relationship: Your relationship with your children is important. As part of your divorce it is vital that you preserve your access to your children and your parental rights. In doing so we have to consider what custodial arrangement is best for your children, best for your relationship with your children and your co-parenting relationship with your soon-to-be-ex-spouse.
Financial support for your children: After the divorce you will need to think about the financial care for your children whether you are going to receive child support or pay child support. You need to ensure fair terms are established that will adequately provide for the wellbeing of your children.
Dealing with the emotional aspects of your divorce: Your divorce will take an emotional toll on you and your children. It may have tough effects on your relationship with your children. These issues need to be dealt with for your own mental health and the welfare of your children. Although your divorce attorney will not take care of this need, by hiring a divorce attorney to care for your other needs you can focus on these emotional issues.
