Medical Professionals and Doctors in a Carlsbad Divorce

On Behalf of | Jun 9, 2019 | Divorce

What do medical professional and doctors in a Carlsbad divorce need to know?  What issues will the spouse of a physician or medical professional face?

Recent statistics show one in three married physicians will go through a divorce.  While this is lower than the national average it isn’t hard to understand the stress on a marriage in these cases.  Doctors and medical professionals must often put the welfare of others above their own family.  Medical professionals face challenging work schedules and continuous changes in healthcare rules and compensation.  They must often face difficult decisions and hold crucial conversations with patients and other medical professionals alike.

The division of community property in these divorce cases can be challenging.  Medical professionals and doctors in a Carlsbad divorce often have an interest in a medical practice or professional corporation.  If the medical professional joined the practice after marriage the financial valuation of the practice itself is a crucial issue.  Spouses of physicians and medical professionals often give up rewarding careers of their own to raise children or to support the practice itself.  Many worked in their spouse’s office for less pay than they might have earned elsewhere.  In some cases there is no pay at all.

Medical professionals and doctors in a Carlsbad divorce are worried about their practice, child custody and parenting time, spousal support and other important issues.  If you are a physician, medical professional or the spouse of a healthcare practitioner you will need skilled and experienced legal representation.
