Two wedding rings rest on a dictionary definition of divorce

Divorce proceedings can often be settled out of court, but Mr. Bury can fight to protect your interests if necessary. 

Matters Addressed in the Divorce Process

Just as every person and every marriage is unique, so is every divorce. Mr. Bury offers customized representation to meet his clients’ unique needs. In most cases, however, the divorce process will address the division of property and assets.

Property and assets generally include anything acquired during the marriage, regardless of whose name is on the title. This can include houses, vehicles, and other real property in addition to furniture, jewelry, and financial assets, such as retirement accounts.

In some cases, spousal support may be warranted. Generally, spousal support is paid when there is a large disparity in each spouse’s income. Support payments allow the spouse who either did not work or made significantly less money to maintain a lifestyle similar to what was enjoyed during the marriage.

Attorney Michael Bury can help to ensure all agreements reached during the divorce process are fair and keep you and your family’s best interests in mind.

If children are involved, both parties must make decisions regarding custody, child support payments, and visitation. Under most circumstances, it is in the best interest of the child to see both parents on a regular basis. Additionally, Mr. Bury generally advises clients against trying to prevent the other parent from seeing the child, except in cases of domestic abuse or other grave situations.

Settling In or Outside of Court

Mr. Bury always acts in the best interests of his clients. For most of his clients, it makes more financial sense to settle divorce matters without going to court. He prefers to help move clients toward a negotiated settlement with which both parties can agree. However, he is not afraid to go to court when needed. Mr. Bury has represented many clients in court and has secured desirable results for his clients as a trial attorney.

Settling outside of court is usually beneficial for everyone involved, especially children. When parents can come to an agreement regarding custody and child support without lengthy and nasty trials, children experience less trauma throughout the process. For clients who desire an amicable divorce process without lengthy and costly court hearings, Mr. Bury offers collaborative divorce services.
