Divorce and Family Law
Understanding the financial and legal impact of divorce on you and your children is essential. At Benckendorf & Benckendorf, P.C., our divorce lawyers work closely with clients to explain the division of property, marital assets, retirement funds, and debt.
The attorneys also will explain what the court considers when determining child custody, visitation schedules, and spousal maintenance. In cases when one spouse owns a business, our attorneys will consult accountants and other financial experts to determine the true value of the company in question to accurately determine the client’s assets and debt to better protect his or her rights and interests.

The Importance of Records and Documentation
Whether you’re getting divorced, establishing custody of your children, or requesting a change in child support payments, documentation is essential to your case. Providing copies of bank statements, credit card statements, stock portfolios, tax returns, medical records, and other pertinent information is essential for building your case. Especially in cases where a post-divorce modification is necessary due to the loss of employment, illness, or injury, the court will require documentation supporting your petition.
