Child support payments benefit your children, not your ex

One contentious area of child custody cases is the assignment of child support. The paying parent might not mind supporting their child but might resent having to give the payments to their ex. Still, these court-ordered payments must be made as ordered by the court. Failing to provide the financial support to your children can lead to you being incarcerated.

Carefully plan what to include in your will

One of the most important things you can do to protect your family members is to have an estate plan in place when you pass away. The cornerstone of this is the will. When you write yours, you don't have to do anything extravagant. It can be fairly simple as long as it has the legally required elements and doesn't contain anything that may have it tossed out.

High asset divorces are likely going to be complex

Not all divorces are created equally. Typically, the only thing that you will find universal is that at least one party feels that the marriage should be ended in a legal manner. Some divorces are much more complex than others. High-asset splits fall under this category. We know that you might be ready to get everything over and done with quickly, but there are some issues that you need to handle first.
