Breaking Free: A Modern Divorce Podcast

It’s Not Fair! (Divorce Law v. Divorce Justice) on Breaking Free: A Modern Divorce Podcast #134

March 11, 2019

Rebecca Zung, Esq. and Susan Guthrie, Esq. are tackling one of the biggest issues almost every divorcing person faces at some point during the process.  Everyone has a different idea of what is FAIR in divorce, but what can you do about it?  

Whether it's how the assets and debts are divided, whether you think you should get spousal support or not have to pay it, how much timesharing you think you or your soon-to-be-ex should have, or how expenses for the children should be paid, dealing with the hard issues is always a challenge when you stir in the emotional aspect of the breakup.   Rebecca and Susan pull back the curtain on this episode and show you how the process really works and how to determine if what you're getting is actually fair.   Be sure to tune in to this one BEFORE you settle!
