How to avoid financial harm during a divorce
The most common cause of fatal financial harm to you and your business as a result of a divorce proceeding, lies in the fact that self-employed, business owners, (or those who are married to self-employed) are not assisted by a business and negotiation attorney, but instead are advised by a family lawyer which they know or had a general recommendation for, and not specifically of relevance to the field of business.
The legal system (such as lawyers, judges, social workers) usually deals with the child's economy and almost never refers to the father's financial situation. I do implement a legal strategy and raise legal arguments regarding preserving economic rights and caring for the economic future of both children and their parents.
A family lawyer who is inexperienced in the business field and in understanding economic models is unable to understand all the delicate and complex nuances in this type of divorce proceeding, and therefore will find it hard to obtain the maximum you deserve and keep everything all that you have achieved so far. After two decades in the field of family law, it goes without saying that I am well versed in the relevant laws, but beyond that, it is important to know how to "stretch" the boundaries of their interpretation. Even when the legal system speaks of the "language of the law," achievements must be produced through the "spirit of the law."
So what do I do differently?
I identify in advance possible legal moves, and produce various arguments from other directions and thus manage to surprise the other party, and also manage to bring a creative solution to the legal dispute and end it quickly to the satisfaction of all parties. Beyond the basic required legal work, I broadly examine the big picture and direct my clients in a precise path, which will better articulate their claims and demands and also best convince the ruling judge.
I understand that the judge is a "flesh and blood" person with thoughts and feelings. Like me, he too looks at the big picture and examines not only the legal aspects but also the human aspects and understands that there are laws and there are people. After 20 years I know that the "dry" law cannot express the internal and mental struggle of my client, whether it is because of his gender or his emotional state or whether it is because of his factual and legal state.
As a family lawyer, I examine with the client his marital life, his emotional and financial situation, his relationships with his children, and help him define his successful and desired outcome. Of course, each case on its own merits, what worked in one case, can be considered a mistake when done in another case.
Self-employed or married to a self-employed person?
Divorce of a self-employed person is not the same as divorce of an employee!
Although your marriage is coming to an end, it does not mean that you have to lose business as well – there are many other economic issues that require special attention.

There are many issues in the family life that have a legal implication. Conducting family law proceedings is subject to the authority race. In parallel with the Family Court, there is also a rabbinical court, whose role is to deal with the issue of divorce and obtaining a divorce according to Jewish Halakha. This authority is exclusive, and it is not possible to discuss obtaining a divorce in a family court.
The question arises, what issues are considered in the case of a family lawyer? The answer may seem trivial – any issue that relates to the family relationships. However, there are precise definitions under the law of all the issues discussed in the Family Court.
Among these matters, can be found the division of inheritance, child support payments following an event of separation or divorce, children custody after divorce or after an exceptional event and more. This is the place to indicate who exactly are the people defined in the law as family members – a family member can be a child, grandchild, present or past spouse (or his relatives), a parent and siblings.
What is the difference between a general attorney and a Family Lawyer?
Most often, in other legal areas, all the agreements are made on written and formal contracts. The main problem in the field of family law, is the agreements and promises, which are usually given verbally and without any written reference. As a result, there is often a situation where each member of the family interprets the agreement made as he sees fit, and the exact interpretation cannot be traced. In addition, one family member may give much weight to a statement made impulsively. The field is saturated with feelings and emotions, which make it complicated and complex in comparison to other fields of the law. It is difficult to attribute rationale to actions taken by family members during a conflict, and many times these actions result from complex psychological feelings and processes and not necessarily from pure considerations of viability and economic gain.
There are cases where family law does not remain an ordinary family dispute, and it leads to criminal offenses. Unfortunately, such cases contain various situations in which one of the family members commits a criminal offense such as forgery, fraud and in extreme cases – even violence.
Choosing the right family lawyer for you
If so, when looking for a divorce lawyer, it is very important to put a lot of emphasis on the lawyer’s professionalism and experience in the field of family law. As mentioned, this is a very complex field. Practicing this field often requires much more than a flat legal understanding. The lawyer should also understand the various psychological processes that have taken place and brought the different parties in the conflict to act in the way they have.
Therefore, in any case it is not advisable to choose a fresh family lawyer who has just completed his internship – it is advisable to prefer a lawyer with as much experience as possible in the field, who has already experienced many cases of family disputes of various types, and can make the right and relevant consequences for every legal case. Such a lawyer may also be familiar with various cases in which he has not participated himself, in addition to a good acquaintance with the court and the persons acting and present in it.
In addition, one should choose a family law attorney whose specific area of expertise is family law.
This is a very wide field, so the recommendation is to choose a family lawyer who specializes in exactly the same field that your case deals with (whether it is a financial agreement, divorce, inheritance law and more). This way, you can ensure that the lawyer is proficient in the taps of the relevant laws, and can provide you with adequate representation.
