Premarital Agreements

Knowing the outcome following a decision to end a marriage can avoid the expense of a protracted divorce.  Keeley Family Law helps prospective marital partners agree how they will own property and what to expect about future support rights or obligations.

 

Separation/Dissolution

 

The divorce process involves identifying, valuing, and dividing assets and obligations accumulated during marriage, protecting separate property assets owned by a party, and applying tax laws to asset division.  A property division can be the result of mediation (parties work together directly, with a neutral attorney, who helps parties reach an agreement), collaborative mediation (each party works with his/her individual attorney) or litigation (preparing a case for resolution by presenting evidence, in the courtroom, for decision by a judge).
