Overland Park Divorce Attorney

During a divorce, many decisions must be made. These decisions will have a lifelong impact on both your financial health and your family relationships.

At Sarah Carmody Law, LLC, I don't waste my clients' time and money arguing over trivial matters. Instead, I focus on what counts: getting my clients their fair share of marital property, dividing marital debt, and seeking child custody and visitation arrangements that protect my clients' parent-child bonds.

Serving Kansas City area communities such as Leawood, I — attorney Sarah Carmody — help individuals throughout the region in both Kansas and Missouri leave their marriages, restructure their families and move forward with their lives.

Shawnee Property Division Lawyer: Dividing Assets And Debts

Dividing assets and debts is an important step in every divorce, which should be done with precision and care. In Kansas and Missouri, marital property is divided based on what is most equitable, not necessarily 50-50.

At Sarah Carmody Law, LLC, I thoroughly examine all marital property, including:

  • Bank accounts
  • Real estate holdings
  • Investment portfolios
  • Retirement accounts

I work hard to get my clients the property they need to leave their marriages in the most financially secure manner possible. I also create QDROs that divide retirement accounts between divorcing spouses.

Maintenance or alimony can provide help to a spouse that is not yet financially independent. There are different factors to determine who is eligible to receive maintenance or alimony and the size of the award. I help client correct determine a maintenance or alimony award to help them get on their feet and become financially independent.

Dividing debt is another major portion of every divorce. I carefully evaluate the source of debts to ensure my clients aren't saddled with their ex-spouse's debts. Determining debt allocation is an important step in every divorce, that if not done properly, could have repercussions for many years to come.

Looking Out For Your Long-Term Interests

At Sarah Carmody Law, LLC, I know the effects a divorce can have on minor children. I work hard to make the transition process as smooth as possible.

When you have a child with someone, he or she will remain in your life for many years. I help clients use alternative forms of dispute resolution — such as mediation — to complete the divorce process as efficiently as possible, avoid the hurt, anger and stress caused by drawn-out courtroom fights, and secure child custody agreements that protect parent-child bonds.
