Divorce in general is often a complicated process that attempts to dissolve the physical and financial bonds that once held a couple together. In the process, emotional bonds can also often shattered. When the stakes are high, you might be shocked at how contentious and volatile a divorce can become. Whether the dispute is about finances or children, an experienced Maryville family law attorney can step in and support you in resolving the conflict and bringing you some peace of mind.
Common issues in high-conflict divorce may include:
* Child custody – Who will get primary, physical custody of the children and who will get visitation.
* Disagreement on the equitable division of assets – In the courts equitable does not mean equal division. Business and real property valuation can be complex when there are several homes and businesses with some located outside of the U.S.
