When you are creating a divorce decree, the wording is essential. At Claery
& Green, our highly experienced team is focused on helping you to
get the satisfactory divorce decree that you deserve that leaves you with
absolute certainty of a solid divorce.
One of the most important things to watch out for when creating a divorce
decree is ambiguous language. If you use vague phrases that can be widely
interpreted, it can wreak havoc on your
divorce. Your spouse may indicate that the broad wording means something very
different from the original intention.
For example, if you put a clause in your divorce decree saying that you
will pay alimony to your spouse as needed, this can become a difficult
issue. This is because your spouse may interpret the phrase “as
needed” to mean that anything below his or her former standard of
living would require
alimony. The petitioning spouse may insist that as needed referred to in times
of desperate need.
Couples can get caught up in court battles over ambiguous language for
months. If you want to save money and time in your divorce, write the
petition correctly the first time with the help of a trained and schooled
professional. At Claery & Green, our lawyers have experience and a
track record of success. They can confidently approach your case, helping
you to craft a divorce petition that includes all the clauses and arrangements
you want, but puts them in clear, succinct language that leaves no room
for wild interpretations.
Remember that your spouse probably has a divorce attorney too, who will
read through the petition looking for any holes. That is why the wording
of your divorce decree is intensely important. Call a divorce attorney
