Caitlyn and Thomas were married for 13 years and had 2 children. Thomas had a good job which paid almost double the amount of Caitlyn’s earnings. During their marriage, they had purchased the home in which the family lives. And, they owned a few other assets. Unfortunately, Caitlyn grew concerned for the safety of the children and overall wellbeing of the family.
According to Caitlyn, “My biggest concern was making decisions that were the least impactful to my children. Having Robinson and Henry on my side I was able to have my children protected from this stressful time in my life. Robinson and Henry had myself and my children’s best interest at heart during my divorce process.”
In contemplating divorce Caitlyn recognized that her primary concerns were financial and retaining custody of the children. Thus, Caitlyn retained the experienced family law attorneys at Robinson and Henry, P.C. Attorneys James Townsend and Joseph Brown immediately developed a legal strategy focused entirely on obtaining the best possible result for Caitlyn. The goal was to obtain the majority of parenting time, a substantial amount of spousal maintenance (alimony), considerable monthly child support payments to Caitlyn, and to allow her to keep the majority of the assets. According to attorney James Townsend,
“Caitlyn came to us as most potential clients do – in the midst of a very difficult time in her life, as well as, in the lives of her children. We helped her through the divorce process, explaining each step in such a way that she could maintain focus on achieving a result which promised a better quality of life and future for her and her children. We made sure that she received a majority of the parenting time which also created monthly child support payments, kept the marital home, and divided the remaining assets and liabilities in a way that eased her transition to being a single Mom capable of supporting her family.”
Robinson & Henry successfully negotiated a parenting plan through mediation which awarded Caitlyn 70% parenting time, possession of the marital home and the joint bank accounts. Thomas had to take 100% of the marital debt, pay 66% of the extracurricular and medical expenses for the children as well as $2,100 a month in spousal maintenance and child support. James and Joe also negotiated a communication and parenting plan that met their family’s needs.
“I was highly satisfied with the outcome of my divorce case. All decisions were made in order for my children and me to be successful and able to move on in a positive direction with our lives. “
Caitlyn and Thomas completed the dissolution of marriage process without either party having to appear in court. The divorce was finalized in only three months, start to finish.
