Just One Simple Question…

Just one simple question…

What a lawyer says matters. Not that it’s more important than what your Doctor or Pastor says, but if a lawyer is wrong you and he/she may get in trouble. Lots of trouble.

Often I am asked “Can you answer just one simple question?” The problem is the knowledge and information necessary makes neither simple nor just one question.  For example, “Will I have to pay Alimony?”

To Answer that with even a remote chance of “getting it right,” one needs to know;

  • What do you do?
  • What does your spouse do?
  • Respective incomes?
  • Earning Capacities?
  • Education?
  • How long since you’ve last worked?
  • How long since she’s last worked?
  • Are there minor children in the home?
  • What age?
  • How long have you been married?
  • Marital fault?
  • How much is the marital estate worth?
  • Is it liquid?
  • How much is the separate estate worth?
  • What else is the spouse receiving?

Just one simple question…
