Why You May Need a Family Law Attorney for Your Divorce

On behalf of Law Offices of Barry I. Finkel, P.A. posted in Mediation

Few divorces go through without a hitch when individuals choose not to hire a family law attorney for the job. While it isn’t impossible to be successful without one, it isn’t a recommended practice, even when the two parties seem to be amicable. If your divorce involves any of the following factors, allow the team at the Law Offices of Barry I. Finkel help.

Child Custody

Things can quickly become complex when children are involved in a divorce. It’s natural for parents to want more time to themselves, but it’s only fair to the children to have relatively equal access to both parents. When you work with a family law attorney, you can rest assured your child’s best interests are considered so you can come to an agreement on how to handle matters of custody.


Dividing property is also often an area of contention for many couples who are going through a divorce. However, this isn’t always as simple as deciding who gets the living room set and how gets the bedroom set. If the couple owns a home or other more significant properties, dividing it up may require the expertise of a family law attorney. They can help you decide whether the property should be sold or what the best course of action would be.

Significant Financials

Another problem often occurs when a couple has significant financial assets. This can further be complicated if one party received a large family inheritance or one individual had a large bank account prior to the marriage. A qualified family law attorney can provide guidance on the best way to split assets that takes all of these factors into consideration.
