There's no getting around the financial impact that a divorce has on all parties...When all of this is combined with the already mounting financial strains of job loss, or decreases to income, things become all the more stressful and challenging.
Bethesda, Maryland (PRWEB) September 22, 2016
The Census Bureau has reported a 5.2 percent increase in household income from 2014 to 2015, yet signs of a still sluggish economy and a lack of economic growth remain, and one oft-ignored impact of this on American couples and families is increased difficulty with divorce.
Maryland divorce lawyer Brandon Bernstein of the Law offices of Brandon Bernstein is by responding by offering a free consultation to prospective clients who are potentially facing both bankruptcy and divorce. This will individuals explore potential solutions, while discussing courses of action, and offering more insight into the financial impact and outcomes of divorce proceedings.
"There's no getting around the financial impact that a divorce has on all parties," says Brandon Bernstein, Esq., a three-time Maryland Super Lawyers Rising Star winner. "This is particularly true for couples with children, and those with substantial combined assets and interests. When all of this is combined with the already mounting financial strains or burdens of job loss, or decreases to income, things become all the more stressful and challenging."
In certain circumstances, couples have decided to stay together simply because they could not afford to go through with a divorce. For instance, neither party would have been able to continue affording the house on his or her own, and in tandem with that, stagnant or declining home prices left less value in the property than anticipated, and perhaps led to the home being underwater.
Other couples have decided to forgo potentially expensive attorney fees by handling divorce matters themselves. However, this often only leads to increased difficulties, as important matters are bypassed, overlooked, or handled ineffectively.
Working with an experienced family law attorney is always recommended to produce the best possible outcome. It's also the surest path to avoid as many pitfalls and headaches of the process, particularly when financial issues are of primary concern.
Contrary to popular opinion, hiring an attorney does not mean that the process has to be combative either. As an example, divorce mediation often produces favorable results that both parties are happy with.
