Prepared To Handle Your Family Law Matter

We focus a significant part of our firm practice to divorce and other family law challenges. We offer representation in the areas of:

Your Fight Is Our Fight, And You Have Our Support

At Babich Sarcone, we believe every individual deserves to be treated with dignity and has a right to be heard. We understand that divorce is about change and that there is no such thing as an easy divorce. Family law cases involve far more than just arguments about the law. The practice area involves personal and emotional factors that cannot be ignored. Our experienced attorneys have been through the process many times and will advise you regarding what results you can reasonably expect to obtain. They will help prepare you for all aspects of a case and answer the questions you may have along the way.

Do You Need A Family Law Lawyer?

Even in cases where both spouses want to work together to resolve their divorce, you should always have a family law attorney at your side. We can help guide you through your case to ensure you are defending the best interests of yourself and your children while not giving up more than necessary in a divorce. We can also work to pursue a swift and efficient resolution to your legal needs.

How Long Does A Divorce Take?

In Iowa, there is a mandatory 90-day waiting period before a final divorce decree, which means the fastest divorces still take at least three months to resolve. If the divorce is complicated, it can take several months or longer to resolve.

How Does Iowa Divide Marital Property?

Iowa courts use the “equitable distribution” method of dividing assets. This method seeks to split assets fairly between both parties, which may not always result in a 50/50 split. For example, if one spouse contributed more to the marriage, they may receive a larger total portion of the assets in the divorce.
