Pitfalls of an Economy Divorce (Part 1)
A divorce affects every aspect of your life as well as the lives of your children. The internet is inundated with legal firms promising a “fast, cheap and easy” divorce. Would you gamble with your physical health in the same manner?
Seek out the best value
This does not mean taking a trip to the dollar store or settling for less. Many firms offer a seemingly effortless process, but it often results in a flawed and unreasonable outcome. Or you can wade through numerous ads for do-it-yourself options. Once again, would you attempt to administer your own medical procedure?
The Alpha Center for Divorce Mediation offers a comprehensive program that covers the important aspects of your divorce from the parenting agreement and the equitable division of assets to a plan for a secure financial future. Our in-depth, step-by-step program results in a marital settlement agreement that protects you from any future legal or financial pitfalls. Making the right decision today will help save you time, money and unnecessary stress down the road.
Risk of Cutting Corners
There is more to consider when ending a marriage than obtaining a divorce decree. Unfortunately, that is the result of most cheap alternatives. Of utmost importance is the health and well-being of your children. At Alpha, you and your spouse begin by working with a parenting-mediator to craft a parenting agreement that works for both of you. Most “quick and easy” divorces do not include this crucial piece.
Make sure every issue is covered
Next, through Alpha’s program, you and your spouse will decide how to divide your financial assets and debts with your attorney-mediator. This is followed by a thorough review by one of Alpha’s accountant-mediators who will explain the tax implications of your decisions. The accountant review is an important step to avoid any financial surprises when tax time arrives next year. Once your marital settlement agreement is signed and notarized, you and your spouse will have an opportunity to speak with a financial consultant, individually, to further plan for your future. Attempting to cut costs when seeking help with your divorce can cause you to leave out critical parts affecting your future.
At Alpha, we offer a comprehensive and thorough method for obtaining a divorce which includes important pieces that often get overlooked by DIY or litigation options. Don’t gamble with your future or the future of your family. Alpha will help you avoid common pitfalls by guiding you through this unnerving situation.
