As complicated as a
divorce is, you obviously need a legal expert on your side to help you navigate
all the difficulties and to help you come out successfully on the other
side. But sometimes, you will need further assistance in this crucial
and trying process. Here are some other professionals you may need in
your corner for a divorce.
1) Sometimes, you and/or your children will need a psychological expert's
help. In an intense time, you and your family could benefit from counseling.
This can mentally and emotionally equip you for what lies ahead. But even
in the legal process itself, you may need a psychological expert to voice
a recommendation for
child custody. If you hire a private child custody evaluator, he or she will assess
you situation and might be able to come up with the
parenting plan that is best for your children.
2) Additional experts might help in situations where child support and
maintenance need to be determined. A vocational expert can arrive in cases where one
spouse has been out of the workforce for years, and the expert can assess
how employable that spouse is. Will that spouse need further training,
education, etc.? The answer to this will factor in on support decisions.
Likewise, an income expert can examine the income of each spouse, an examination
that will weigh in on spousal and
3) One of the snags that
property division can hit is evaluation problems. For example, you might disagree with your
spouse on how much your house is worth, or you might disagree with the
first appraisal. In either case, a real estate expert might be able to
help you come up with a more accurate appraisal, so you do not get less
for your house than is fair.
4) When a couple owns a business together, this immediately escalates the
complications involved with a divorce. Hence a business evaluation expert
may be necessary. This is just one of the experts whom you may need to
help determine what exactly your company is worth, so you can determine
how to split it, or to determine what one spouse should receive to counterbalance
giving up their share in the business.
Of course, this a general outline of situations you might encounter. Every
case is unique, and special challenges may require the assistance of another
expert. This is not an expense you want to make unnecessarily, however,
and legal counsel can help you determine what is essential for your case.
