“ Steve and Renee were great to work with! Very professional and realistic. Gave no false expectations or predictions. They communicated everything to us in a timely manner. We will definitely use them again if ever needed! Thank you, Steve and your team! “
“ For my family law case, Steve Smith had a very strong presence and was dominant in the courtroom. The manner in which he carries out cases is something you see in the movies. He was really animated and passionate about my case. His military background is a big asset, and he really helped me out. I would highly recommend him. “
“ We hired Leah M. Baldacci for a family law case and she was so extremely helpful and got me through my case. She’s very professional and takes the time to listen to her clients. She’s a wonderful advocate and a fantastic attorney. If you’re looking for a great attorney, I recommend Leah. Thank you so much for your legal help. “
“ I’ve hired Steve for two cases, and I am very pleased with my decision. He fights for his clients and strives for the best outcome. His entire staff is pleasant and wonderful to work with. “
“ I hired Steve for a parental rights case involving my 2 children. He was aggressive but supportive and did not file unnecessary motions that wasted my retainer. I was terrified of court, but with his experience, I felt at ease. The process was explained, and his staff was great as well. I would hire him again if needed and received a great outcome with an order that works for me and my children. “
Handled my Parental Rights Case with Ease
Over the course of a marriage, many couples put funds away in retirement or investment accounts. Either by agreement or through Court Order, the parties will divide these retirement or investment accounts. Oftentimes, however, selling shares or distributing funds before a certain age can create negative tax consequences.
If your divorce includes the distribution of retirement and investment accounts, you will most likely benefit from the expertise of a Family Law Trial Lawyer. Your Family Law Trial Lawyer will help you draft a Qualified Domestic Relations Order, which will be presented and signed by the Court, which will enable you to move funds following your divorce without you having to pay the typical necessary taxes.
You may also wish to request that the Court order for your ex-spouse to name you as the beneficiary on a retirement or investment account. This, along with purchasing a Life Insurance Policy, helps to secure Spousal Support or Child Support payments in event of the payor spouse’s untimely death.
You may be in a situation where some of your retirement accounts or investment accounts were started before you were married. In this case, these accounts, or even portions of these accounts, may be considered “non-marital” property. A Family Law Trial Lawyer will help you argue that these funds should be set aside from the other marital property and should not be subject to equitable distribution between you and your spouse.
