How Will My Divorce Affect MY Life?

“How will my divorce affect my life?” This is typically one of the most common questions our clients at Vacanti Shattuck come to us with during their initial consultation.

Helping You Understand What To Expect When You Divorce Your Spouse

It is important to remember that because marriage is seen as a legal contract by the state, both parties are given equal protections under the law. This means parties are also given equal protections during divorce. This doesn’t mean that divorce will affect every person in the same way, however. Simply put, divorce affects every family differently.

Over the last two decades, our managing partners Christopher A. Vacanti and Kelly T. Shattuck have helped men and women throughout eastern Nebraska take into consideration the factors that will shape the next stages of their lives and their children’s future.

When you consult Vacanti Shattuck, our lawyers will work closely with you to address your questions such as:

  • How will my child custody and/or visitation agreement influence the time I am able to spend with my children?
  • What will happen to my property during the property division and equitable distribution process in my divorce?
  • How will child support and spousal support be determined? How will it affect my finances?
  • What role will my prenuptial/postnuptial agreement play in my divorce?
  • How will my divorce impact my professional practice?

We want you to know that we understand how daunting the divorce process can be, especially when you are unsure of what will become of your finances, your property and your relationships with your children. Let our knowledgeable divorce attorneys help you understand what to expect.
