Our Unique Approach to Divorce Cases
Why do clients choose divorce attorney Richard Martin? It's simple.
He works to maximize the economic benefit his clients are likely to receive
in a divorce and to minimize their amount of economic risk. This analysis
necessarily begins with a realistic look at the likely outcome for the
client should the case proceed to trial. This approach can have a significant
impact on the value of the final divorce settlement. He keeps the outcome
in mind and works to make it as successful as possible.
You may have heard that Kansas is a "no-fault" divorce state. Technically, that's not quite true. A divorcing
party still may cite the fault of one party as grounds for divorce—for
example, a "failure to fulfill a material marital duty." In
Kansas it is simply not required in order to obtain a divorce. Rather,
so long as ONE party to the divorce action is willing to state under oath
that the parties are "incompatible," the judge must grant the
divorce as long as all the other statutory requirements are met. For this
reason, many judges frown upon the use of "fault" grounds in
divorce cases. There are times, however, when one spouse's actions
during the marriage could affect a judge's decision on how to settle
the divorce. Our approach includes evaluating when it is prudent to introduce
fault concepts into the divorce proceedings. In some cases, doing so may
help to maximize a divorce settlement. This decision necessarily involves
the careful evaluation of an experienced divorce lawyer.
There are many times when a divorce can in fact be civil. When possible,
we encourage parties to work together, through their attorneys, to resolve
their divorce in a mutually acceptable manner. Each person should be represented
by an experienced divorce lawyer to ensure that they are protected and
to prevent costly errors.
