A divorce can shape your financial future for years to come. This can be particularly true for those who aged 50 and older, as we discussed in last week’s post about gray divorce. If you are considering ending your marriage in Louisiana, you want to do everything necessary to ensure you start your post-divorce life with as much financial strength as possible.
To do this, you need to ensure that you address every divorce legal issue that may arise. You have to be prepared to handle property division matters, which includes identifying and valuing assets, and arguing for or against spousal support. If these issues are mishandled, then your soon-to-be ex-spouse could take advantage of you, leaving you with far less than you deserve.
An experienced family law team, like the one at the Rowe & Manning Law Firm LLC, can help individuals address these legal matters in a prepared and aggressive fashion. Our legal professionals know when it is appropriate to argue for alimony, and how to fight for what is fair. During property division, we can help identify key assets and fight for a property settlement which provides financial security.
Property division and alimony can be hot button issues in later-life divorce. You have to fight for what is fair to you, which requires knowledge of the law and how to apply it to your specific set of circumstances. This is where a family law attorney like one of those at our firm may prove beneficial. Choosing an attorney can be tough, as there are many options. We encourage you to carefully research any firms you are considering so that you can start your divorce process off on a strong legal footing.
