When you’re going through a divorce, you’ve got a lot on your mind: alimony, child support, assets, your relationship with your kids, in-laws, etc. On top of all that, you’ve got to keep your career moving. Though your employer may be granting you some leniency during the divorce process, you know that as soon as the court proceedings are over you’re going to have to jump back into your career going full-steam ahead.
While this can sound stressful and rather worrisome, the good news is that a great Denver divorce lawyer can actually help you keep your professional career on track. Here are a few ways your divorce attorney can help you…
Your Denver Family Law Attorney & Your Career
Because divorce lawyers are professionals themselves, they understand your needs. Here’s what your lawyer can do for you:
- Handle the vast majority, if not all, of your communications with your spouse. By relaying information and negotiating with your spouse, your divorce attorney can relieve you of a huge burden. As a result, you have the time and freedom to pursue your career with minimal interruption.
- Your attorney will also arrange for the settlement to benefit your career as much as possible. If you own assets that are directly tied to your ability to practice your profession, then all you have to do is make that clear to your attorney. As a result, he/she will prioritize the protection of those career-related assets.
- Thirdly, your divorce attorney can provide you with legal advice, professional-to-professional, about how to proceed after the divorce. There are many financial and legal ramifications of a divorce that exist long after the court case is closed. Some of these consequences you’re certainly aware of (e.g. alimony and child support), but others could be a big surprise. Your Denver divorce attorney can be sure you’re kept abreast of these potential pitfalls.
