Iowa Divorce Laws
Iowa is a no-fault divorce state, which means that a couple can divorce without having to give a reason or prove any specific cause for the marital breakdown, and marital assets get divided equally regardless of what occurred. A divorce begins when your lawyer files the petition for divorce with an Iowa court.
Protecting your assets
The Des Moines family law attorneys at our firm will first work to ensure that assets aren't sold off or destroyed, so they will still be around to be distributed equally. We'll also move to ensure that your spouse doesn't take on any more debt. When your divorce is finalized, we'll ensure that the title to your property and the deed for your home is correct and filed to protect your interests. If you are in danger of losing your home, you may want to contact a real estate mortgage professional to help you, such as www.shanestopsforeclosures.com.
Enforcing Divorce orders
After divorce, previous spouses sometimes fail to follow the court's orders. Our aggressive family law attorneys know the laws for post divorce enforcement, and we'll use our determination to ensure compliance with the court's orders.
Modifying divorce orders
After the court makes its orders, there may be changes in circumstances that warrant a modification to the order, or there may be a need to argue against a needless modification. You can rely on our aggressiveness to ensure that the right arguments are made to the court to have the order modified in accordance with your best interests.
