Is It Possible To Plan For Your Family’s Financial Future During Divorce?

Divorce is an emotional time and many people find it difficult to envision their future. Caught amid contentious feelings, some fail to properly plan for the next chapter in their lives. Decisions affecting your family's financial future are especially challenging when you do not know your rights regarding your children or your marital property. Marital property includes everything that is owned by you or your spouse. Just because the item is only in your spouse's name does not mean that you do not have a right to that item. Working with an experienced lawyer can provide the guideposts you need for lasting financial security. Ms. Marcus has a lot of experience finding solutions for tough custody problems.

Many families have assets such as equity in their homes, businesses, pensions, 401(k) plans, military retired pay, art collections, guns and automobiles. Attorney Cynthia A. Marcus can help you decide the best way to divide these assets to provide for your family's long-term security. Does it make more sense to settle for the house right now or should you look to a future pension? Do you need income right now? Should you go back to school? What are the tax consequences?

An experienced attorney can help you make decisions during this difficult time that support your future goals. Ms. Marcus asks you about your career goals and aspirations, long-term plans, living situation and other details that may affect your ability to do what is best for your family.

Ms. Marcus listens carefully to you to understand the depth and breadth of your goals and visions. With over 20 years of experience, she can help you navigate success for your family and yourself. Ensuring that you make constructive financial decisions as you go through the transition of divorce is one of her firm's most well-developed strengths.

There Is More Than One Method To Achieve A Satisfactory Outcome

Divorce disputes may be resolved outside of the courtroom with an experienced lawyer. Collaborative divorce may be an option for you. Settlement negotiations, mediation even arbitration, present less expensive and less time-consuming problem-solving methods. Clients concerned about the privacy of their divorce also have more control over their divorce if they negotiate an agreement out of court.

A trial is set when parties cannot arrive at their own settlement and require a judge to settle matters for them. Ms. Marcus is an aggressive, tough advocate for her clients in and out of the courtroom. She is one of a few family law attorneys serving Hamilton County who will also provide representation in the Indiana Court of Appeals if an appeal is necessary for an optimal result.
