In Delaware, navigating the path of divorce comes with its own set of challenges, yet the law provides for a no-fault divorce approach. This means you’re not required to state a reason beyond irreconcilable differences. While it’s possible to pursue a fault divorce due to marital misconduct, this often does not influence the financial outcome of the divorce proceedings.

At WhitbeckBennett, we understand the deep impact a divorce can have on your life, affecting everything you hold dear. While we hold hope for reconciliation in every marriage, our commitment is to protect what matters most to you: your family and financial well-being. We offer comprehensive support for both contested and uncontested divorces, ensuring your journey through this difficult time is handled with compassion and skilled guidance.

Navigating Your Divorce in Delaware

Your WhitbeckBennett attorney will stand by your side through various stages of the divorce process, focusing on key areas such as:

Child Custody and Visitation Agreements: The presence of children significantly complicates divorce proceedings. We prioritize establishing fair child custody and visitation agreements, ensuring the well-being of your children is at the forefront. For families in transition, we offer insights into navigating family dynamics and legal considerations with understanding and care.

For parents concerned about maintaining a meaningful relationship with their children post-divorce, it’s crucial to have a dedicated attorney by your side. Delaware law supports shared custody and active parental involvement. Let us help you safeguard your parental rights and ensure your children’s futures.

Marital Property Division: In Delaware, the division of marital property is governed by the principle of equitable distribution. This means assets are divided fairly, though not always equally, based on each partner’s earnings and future earning potential. Our role is to advocate for a division that respects your contributions to the marriage and positions you for a stable financial future.

Alimony: While alimony is not guaranteed, it is considered when one partner is significantly financially dependent on the other. We’ll help you navigate the complexities of alimony, ensuring any agreement is just and sustainable.

In Delaware, a six-month separation period is required before filing for divorce. This separation signifies the cessation of marital cohabitation, even if you remain under the same roof. With WhitbeckBennett, you’re not just gaining a lawyer; you’re gaining a team committed to your best outcomes, assisting you through every step of your separation and divorce.
