Divorce Requires Proper Financial Planning

Posted by Steven D. Eversole | Apr 12, 2008 | 0 Comments

Divorce requires proper financial planning.  This statement seems obvious but is often overlooked by many inexperienced divorce practitioners.  While property division, child support and alimony are often negotiated, other equally important aspects of divorce planning may go overlooked.  Life insurance is an often overlooked aspect of divorce proceedings.  For instance, what happens if the person required to pay alimony or child support dies?  An article detailing these exact divorce planning concerns can be found here.  As a practicing Alabama divorce and family law attorney and lawyer, I always insist that my divorce clients are protected from such an eventuality, by making sure those responsible forchild support payments or alimony are required to maintain a life insurance policy. 

This is just one more reason why anyone considering a divorce should contact an experienced Alabama divorce and family lawyer.  Divorce is not a simple matter and should be undertaken only by an attorney or law firm that focuses its practice on Alabama divorce law.  A good Alabama divorce lawyer must understand taxes, be a financial planner, understand the myriad aspects of divorce law, including child support, alimony, child visitation, child custody etc., and must be an aggressive litigator and excellent communicator.
