Every divorce commences with a petition at the court. When it comes to divorces, one is obliged to be assisted by an attorney from the moment that a petition is filed. There are several legal aspects to a divorce procedure about which the judge will give judgement. A Law & More attorney can help you organise these aspects as good as possible. Our attorneys are specialists in the field of family law. How will the joint capital be distributed? Is your ex-partner entitled to a share of your pension? And what about the fiscal consequences of a divorce? Do you or your partner own the right to partner alimony? If so, what will be the height of the partner alimony? These are some important issues that arise around the settlement of a divorce.

If you and your partner are on good terms and are able to come to good agreements together, than you can initiate a mediator before filing a petition for a divorce. A mediator assists you and your partner with coming to an agreement. However, most of the time the parties are not able to communicate orderly. In such a case we can provide you with an attorney who will negotiate about all legal aspects. We seek after achieving the best result and we investigate every legal aspect carefully.

When there are children involved it is important that their needs are taken into account too. We will ensure that their needs will be fulfilled in the agreement as much as possible. Together we can draft a parenting plan in which the distribution of the care of the children after the divorce is documented. Furthermore, we can calculate the amount of child alimony that needs to be paid or received.

Are you already divorced and dealing with a conflict about for example partner alimony or child support? Or is there a reason to assume that meantime your ex-partner possesses a sufficient amount of financial resources to take care of herself/himself? In these cases we can provide you with legal support as well.

Entrepreneur and divorce

If you are an entrepreneur and you are going to divorce then there is a lot more to take into account when it comes to the distribution of the capital and the amount of partner alimony. What if you own shares in a limited company (B.V.)? Are these shares part of the community of goods? What happens to my sole proprietorship? And what are the consequences for the company? These are, among others, questions that need to be taken into consideration. Our attorneys possess knowledge about both family law and entrepreneurship and thus are ultimately suitable to juridically assist you in these cases.

Shortly, some of the subjects we can assist you with are:

  • marital conditions
  • distribution of the joint capital
  • child support
  • partner alimony
  • custody of the children
  • parenting plan
  • right to a share of the pension
  • debts
  • fiscal consequences
