Kalis & Kleiman Share the Potential Costs of a Divorce
The emotional and financial consequences of divorce and family law litigation (http://www.kaliskleiman.com/
There are still costs involved in getting a divorce whether litigated, mediated, uncontested or do-it-yourself. Both spouses can face financial harm. Here are some of the costs considerations when getting a divorce:
* Home or Vehicle Sales – common assets like homes and cars may be sold when divorce is finalized or families may need to maintain two mortgages or rents and associated bills (insurance, electricity)
* Division of Debt – division of existing debts and bills will need to be identified (credit cards, electric bills, etc).
* Capital Gains – taking out or dividing assets (bank accounts, CDs, stocks, IRA, 401K, etc.) can have large tax bills to contend with.
* Child Support – child support and maintenance varies state to state with a variety of factors to be measured and is often considered a priority and decided before spousal support.
* Spousal Support – alimony varies state to state with a variety of factors to be considered (length of marriage, employment, earnings, etc.).
* Health Care & Educational Costs - Many divorce settlements require that one spouse be responsible for all or most of the young children's long-term health care and educational costs.
* Child Care – depending on the child’s age and needs, and the parents working situation, they may have to pay for child care services.
* Legal Fees and Counsel – whether an amicable do-it-yourself divorce or hiring a lawyer, there are still legal fees to be paid by both spouses.
At Kalis & Kleiman, we believe that each client has a unique set of needs and priorities and that every client should receive individual and compassionate attention, as divorce cases can cost a lot of money depending on the issues surrounded a divorce.
