Money is always a large concern in divorce, as it is in life. Often, one party's hope is to have enough to care for his or her children, while the other party's concern is to pay an unburdensome amount of child support. Reconciling these conflicting goals is frequently a daunting challenge requiring the support and guidance of a legal advisor who can untangle the issues and develop workable solutions.

A sound understanding of both parties' financial circumstances is necessary. At The Kitson Law Firm, LLP, our attorneys work with sophisticated financial analysts when necessary to evaluate the wealth and holdings of our client and his or her spouse.
