    Actions That May Impact the Outcome of Your Divorce Case

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Divorce can be a very difficult process for both you and your former partner, especially if you have children. If you are going through a divorce, always consult regularly with your divorce lawyer. Attorney Larry Lefkowitz, Esq. is dedicated to applying his more than 20 years of experience in family law to ensure that each and every client has a satisfactory and efficient resolution. Read on for a list of actions that may adversely affect the outcome of your case.

    Refusing Necessary Communication
    Many splits can be resolved more quickly if both partners remember that negotiation is about settling the business end of marriage. Try to put your emotions aside and communicate with your former spouse in a respectful manner. Remember that he or she is also likely in pain, and leaving the doors open to communication may help you better understand each other and avoid a difficult court battle.

    Making False Assumptions
    If your spouse cheated on you while you were married, you may assume that his or her claim to your shared assets is affected. But not all states take one spouse’s marital indiscretions into account. Your best course of action is always to review the specific facts of your case with your divorce lawyer, and to select an attorney who is committed to guiding you through the legal process every step of the way.

    Disparaging the Other Parent
    Did you know that judges look favorably upon a parent who demonstrates that he or she supports the other parent’s relationship with the couple’s children? If you have children with your former spouse, never denigrate the other parent or attempt to interfere with parenting time. If you fail to show that you have your child’s best interests in mind, your custody claim may be affected.

    When Should My Spouse and I Consider a No-Fault Divorce?

    Last updated 1 year ago

    For spouses who part on amicable terms, a no-fault divorce in which neither party blames the other for the dissolution of marriage is an increasingly popular legal solution. Though neither spouse deems the other to be at fault, a qualified divorce lawyer should always represent the legal interests of each party. Family lawyer Larry Lefkowitz, Esq. has successfully handled hundreds of no-fault divorces and enabled Philadelphia clients to move on with their lives. Here are three reasons why you should consider a no-fault divorce:

    Institutionalization
    If your spouse has a mental illness and must be confined to an institution, a no-fault divorce may be the best solution. Under these difficult circumstances, a divorce may be granted without a court hearing. The law mandates that your spouse must have been in a mental institution for at least 18 months prior to your divorce filing, and you must not reasonably believe that he or she will be discharged in the 18 months after filing.

    Mutual Consent
    Do you and your spouse agree that your marriage is irretrievably broken? In a no-fault divorce, each party must file an affidavit giving legal consent to the divorce. After a 90-day waiting period, a judge will grant your divorce without a court hearing. If only one party insists that his or her commitment to the marriage has ended, that individual may still initiate no-fault divorce proceedings, citing an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. Because a unilateral no-fault divorce may be contested, you should retain a qualified family lawyer to handle your case.

    Irretrievable Breakdown
    If both spouses believe that the marriage cannot be fixed and you have lived separately for at least two years, you may file a joint complaint to the court deeming the marriage to be “irretrievably broken,” or unfixable.

    Understanding the Legalities of Divorce

    Last updated 1 year ago

    If you or a loved one is facing a divorce, it’s important to educate yourself about what the procedure entails. You can get informed about your legal rights by watching this video on the basics of divorce.

    A divorce, or dissolution of marriage, is a legal order issued by the court saying that a marriage no longer exists. Spouses who decide to divorce begin by filing papers with their state court, and most divorces are finalized with a divorce agreement rather than a trial. This agreement divides up property, money, and debt, and arranges for any child custody division or spousal support. When finalized by both parties’ attorneys, the court issues a divorce decree.
