If you have never been through the divorce process before it can be an intimidating concept. Along with the emotional impact a divorce has on everyone involved there are also legalities that must be addressed if you wish to permanently dissolve your marriage. Although each divorce is as unique as the marriage that needs to be terminated, there are some common legal issues in a divorce, including:

  • Who will have primary custody of minor children?
  • What visitation schedule will be implemented for the non-custodial parent?
  • Who will retain possession of the marital residence?
  • How will other marital assets be divided?
  • Who will be responsible for the debts of the marriage?
  • How much child support will the non-custodial parent pay?
  • Will alimony/spousal support be paid?

Each one of these issues must ultimately be resolved before the marriage can legally be terminated. Ideally, the parties will reach an out of court settlement agreement, thereby eliminating the need for a protracted legal battle. Reaching an agreement, however, may not be easy. Moreover, if an out of court settlement cannot be reached then a court will have to make decisions for the parties.

Whether you anticipate an amicable divorce or a contentious one you need an experienced attorney on your side to ensure that your rights are protected throughout the process.
