Divorce law

If you and your spouse are able to agree to mediate, our team can work with you and come up with a divorce settlement using the assistance, guidance and expertise of a divorce mediator.

The divorce mediator’s role is different from that of a family law attorney. A family law divorce mediator will work to facilitate an agreement between spouses but will not provide legal advice to either spouse.

Is Mediation Right for You?

Since mediation is a voluntary process, you and your spouse must first agree to mediate. You do not need to be in agreement on divorce issues to choose mediation. The mediator’s role will be to provide you with information so that you understand the issues involved in your divorce and to help you and your spouse work through these issues so that you can make your own decisions without involving the Court. In order to engage in mediation, you and your spouse must agree and be willing to share all pertinent income and asset information and must be willing to be civil and participate in coming up with creative solutions.

Mediation is confidential and one of the benefits is that your personal issues will not be aired in court rooms and publicly accessible court files. Your children will also not be exposed to all the negatives that come with a contested traditional divorce. This is often one of the reasons why our clients choose to retain us to design their own divorce solutions.

If you have questions pertaining to the benefits of mediation and getting started on the mediation process, call the attorneys at The Sperling Legal Group at 818-205-9090.

LEGALLY CHANGING YOUR DIVORCE AGREEMENT

Certain issues can still be modified even after your divorce judgment is granted. These include child custody and visitation, child support, and spousal support. Therefore, if circumstances change, it may be possible to modify the orders in the Judgment.

The important element necessary to get a modification of a divorce judgment is that certain changes have occurred since the judgment that warrant a change in the original orders. An example of such change would be a job loss that involves a significant drop in income or sudden accident where a parent is disabled and no longer able to care for the children.

The Sperling Legal Group attorneys can assist you with the modification process, even if we did not represent you in your divorce proceeding. Call our office today at 818-205-9090 to schedule a no-charge consultation regarding a post judgment divorce modification.

HIGH NET WORTH DIVORCE

The simplest definition of a high net worth divorce is a divorce involving a client who has a considerable amount of wealth amassed – generally speaking, this would be someone with at least $5 million in liquid assets. But that’s not anywhere close to being a complete definition, for high net worth divorces typically involve a broader range of financial and legal considerations.

At The Sperling Legal Group, we list high net worth divorces as one of our specialties, specifically because of the level of complexity those cases involve.

While the accumulation of substantial assets and wealth is clearly a benefit to any married couple, the difficulties of divorce may be compounded as a divorcing couple is faced with the task of dividing the assets and wealth in an equitable manner. Whether it is fear of losing money, questions regarding how to determine the value of volatile investments, or the challenges of valuing businesses, all of these unknowns can understandably cause anxiety

With many years of experience helping clients with different types of divorce, we are readily familiar with the forensic/accounting experts required to analyze and assist with the division of complex estates. With the assistance of these experts, and with our years of experience in this field, we will assuage your concerns by providing top-notch assistance during a high net worth divorce.

If you require assistance with a high net worth divorce, you can be rest assured knowing that the dedicated team of experienced attorneys and staff at The Sperling Legal Group will adequately address your case with the attention and professionalism it deserves.
