Financial Support During and After Divorce or Separation
Financial security is an important issue regardless of whether or not children are involved. At Jensen & Leiberan, we assist clients with all aspects of spousal support and child support, from identifying the types of spousal support warranted to ensuring that the facts are applied appropriately in the determination of child support. We understand the importance of timely intervention by your family law attorney to obtain temporary orders affecting temporary child or spousal support, as well as temporary orders concerning the waste of marital assets, exclusive use of the marital residence, temporary custody and other vital issues.
Bankruptcy and Divorce
Many people find that the filing of a divorce petition initiates the need to file for bankruptcy. Whether you are contemplating filing for bankruptcy during or after divorce, or if you have learned that your spouse has filed for bankruptcy, it is important to understand the interplay between bankruptcy and divorce proceedings. Our divorce attorneys can work with your bankruptcy lawyer to ensure that gains in one court are not diluted or erased by a ruling in the other court.
