For Most People, The Personal Aspects Of Divorce Are Tough, But They Are Only Part Of The Whole Experience

A marital breakdown is no one's chosen path in life. The emotional and social aspects of divorce are heavy matters for most people.

At our law firm, we are sensitive to emotional aspects of divorce — and skilled at helping clients separate them from the essential legal matters at hand.

Get The Legal Guidance You Need As You Pursue A Result You Can Live With

The terms of your divorce may be determined through settlement negotiations, mediation or courtroom litigation. For peace of mind, we recommend setting aside any idea of "winning" in your divorce case. Rather, look for a fair settlement with the least amount of aggravation. To discover how best to pursue the satisfactory outcome you deserve in your Iowa divorce, request a consultation with one of our well-known family law attorneys, Robert L. Sudmeier or Jenny L. Weiss, and devise effective strategies that take into account your unique life circumstances.

High-Asset Divorces Can Be Especially Challenging To Navigate

Questions about hidden assets or dissipation of marital assets are valid concerns in many cases. Your divorce lawyer can help you tackle and resolve difficult issues such as these, as well as:

  • Spousal support during or after the period of time before the divorce is finalized
  • Alimony after a divorce, whether short-term or long-term
  • Child custody and child support if applicable
  • Health insurance, life insurance and retirement accounts
  • Allocation and division of assets, including post-divorce ownership of the marital home, stocks, investments and deferred assets such as anticipated bonuses, commissions or executive compensation
