Counsel from Trusted Sacramento Lawyers
A structured settlement process is one that focuses on complex disputes and offers a basis for a practical and sensible approach to gathering the information and the expert opinions needed to evaluate a case. At Perkovich Law Offices we understand that, for some couples, the divorce process can seem daunting and uncertain. Our experienced Sacramento attorneys have resolved thousands of divorce cases—including many that needed to confront significant estates and complex assets.
How to Arrive at a Structured Settlement
Attorney Nancy Perkovich acts as a neutral settlement evaluator to obtain and organize all the information needed by both sides related to their assets, debts, income, valuation, tracing, and other issues. The settlement evaluator will have neutral qualified experts where additional expertise is needed.
Complex assets that often need additional expertise include:
- Professional practices
- Real property
- Unique assets
The early independent analysis of the case will allow parties to gain information on the merits of their case. Various solutions for resolution of the case will be presented and discussed. The parties may participate individually or with counsel.
"Do I Need Representation?"
It is always highly advised that, when seeking a structured settlement, each party retain legal representation. While these procedures are designed to be impartial, decisions can be made that marginalize the rights and interests of one party or fail to address long-term concerns. At Perkovich Law Offices, we know that vigilance is necessary during this process and that each party's interests must be represented—and often asserted—for a fair and equitable settlement to be reached.
