The nest approach to coparenting

The best parenting plan is one that addresses the unique needs of the children and the parents. Of course, there are typical formats that are commonly accepted, these include alternating weekdays with weekends, rotating blocks of days, or perhaps it is one that focuses on summers and holidays if the parents do not live near each other.

It is our goal that every divorce can be handled in a professional, honest and forthright manner by staff and clients. However, the client or their spouse may have difficulty in dividing such assets as real property, bank accounts, investments and possessions. This can lead to the temptation to deceive, hide or otherwise mislead the other side.

Some of the various places your spouse could hide marital assets

Figuring out how to split up your assets is one of the most challenging parts of a divorce. What you want and what your spouse wants likely won't match up exactly, leading to arguments and increasing the potential for a difficult court process. In the heat of a divorce, one or both spouses may do things that they would otherwise think of as unethical.

Making a binding postnuptial agreement

Postnuptial agreements can serve a variety of purposes. One common use is to sooth tension over a disagreement a couple may have. It can apply to different matters, but couples commonly use it to address disagreements over finances or control of certain assets.

Structuring a parenting plan for the holidays

Those couples contemplating an upcoming divorce or separation should pay close attention as they go through their last holiday season together. Parenting plans often will use an alternating year and alternating holiday schedule. This means that those who have the kids on Thanksgiving on even-numbered years will not have them for Christmas, and vice-versa for odd numbered years. The same can be true for the summer stretch with Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor Day.
