Family Law: Dissolution of Marriage/Divorce

Dissolution of marriage (divorce) is a process that terminates the marital rights and responsibilities between spouses. At Langley Law Firm, we have decades of experience dealing with issues commonly involved in a dissolution case, including grounds for dissolution, classification and division of assets of the spouses, ongoing obligations to provide for a spouse after dissolution, the welfare of any children of the marriage and subsequent tax consequences.

A key question that often arises is: when did the spouses separate?

This is significant because each spouse’s right to one-half of the other spouse’s income and retirement accruals ends and the right to receive spousal support begins on that date.

Through his years of experience, Peter Langley knows that poor separation planning can be costly, so he effectively counsels his clients on how to avoid this pitfall.
