Child Custody Evaluations

The primary purpose and main focus of the custody evaluation is to determine what is in the best interests of the child.  A competent assessment will include a skilled clinical interview and history of the family dynamics.

Generally one parent doesn’t win and the other parent lose custody.  Rather, each parent's role with the children may be outlined, and as a result, one may get to spend more time or less time with the children.

Dr. Larry Friedberg is our guest and he explains the custody evaluation process during this program.  www.DivorceSourceRadio.com

Dividing Property During a Divorce Part of a divorce is the division of property. The marital home used to be one of a couple's major assets but due to the current economy, the equity in many homes has been turned upside down leaving couples with little or no equity and in some cases, the couples owe more than their house is worth.

In this program, we discuss the difference between Real Property and Personal Property; we’ll look at residential and commercial real estate holdings. And if you own a business, you’ll learn how businesses are valued and dealt with during a divorce.

We'll also discuss how Boats, planes, cars, furnishings, Stock Assets, Pensions, collectibles, and Inheritance come into play when dividing property.

How to Have a Civil Divorce

When many of us embark on divorce, it’s anything but civil.  Anger can create the "win at any cost" mentality.  If the attorney representing you is overly litigious, you may find yourself on the expensive path of hearings and a trial, and in the end, will you really come out ahead?  You have to weigh the financial and mental cost of this path against what you expect to gain.  Relationships will be torn farther apart, anger will be raised to a new high and if you have children, how will this fallout affect them?

This program will discuss:

- How to size up your attorney and not let them inflame your divorce with unnecessary anger and litigation.

- How unscrupulous attorneys over sell their clients with false hope and promises. 

- How to keep the peace in a divorce.

- The Do’s and Don’ts of a divorce.
