Flint Divorce Attorney

It goes without saying that getting a divorce is much more complicated than getting married. A marriage creates a new legal and financial entity in one day, a marital estate in legal terms. However, the process of untangling the monetary bonds created through marriage is much more complex and tedious. At the law office of Charles D. Riley, Attorney at Law, our Flint family law and divorce lawyer has more than 20 years of experience guiding people through this difficult process with compassion and understanding.

If you are facing the end of a marriage, get the experienced legal representation you deserve. Contact our family law attorney online or call 810-344-4177 to schedule an appointment to discuss your situation.

Dissolution of Marriage Is Complex

A newly married couple normally has some important business to take care of, such as writing a new will, naming each other as beneficiaries on insurance, submitting name and address changes, and similar easily performed transactions. A divorcing couple, by comparison, has to take one household and estate and make it into two — which is ultimately much more involved than simply divvying up pots and pans. Our Flint property division lawyer can help you solve these complicated issues.

Property and Debt Division, and Other Matters

Divorcing couples must account for all property and debts. When there are minor children in the marriage, the parents must agree to and adhere to legally binding child custody and child support arrangements. The vast number of decisions that need to be made can quickly become overwhelming.

When you come to the law office of Charles D. Riley, Attorney at Law, you will get a valuable source of help and information that will provide clarity with all divorce-related matters, including:

Helping You With Spousal Support Matters

In the past, spousal support, or alimony, was almost always awarded to the female party following marriage dissolution. However, those days are gone, along with automatic awards of spousal support. Additionally, with women's earnings sometimes exceeding those of the male partners, women are sometimes required to pay support to their ex-husbands. This is commonly referred to as palimony.

If you are facing spousal support obligations that you cannot pay, or if you believe that you are entitled to more than you have been awarded, we are ready to handle your case.
