Divorce is a pivotal event from a financial perspective as well as a major personal and emotional challenge. If you have built substantial wealth in the course of your marriage, earn or contribute to a high household income, or want to do everything possible to protect specific assets, the experience and resources of your attorney can make all the difference.
