The Primary Aspects of Divorce
During the divorce process there are a variety of aspects of the life you have built with your partner that must be handled, including:
- Child Custody
- The child custody agreement will determine the child's living arrangements and which parents are entitled to legal custody. In some cases, parents may share joint custody while in others one parent may have sole custody. This documentation will also specify the visitation schedule.
- Property Division
- During the divorce, your joint and separate property will need to be divided. While many couples wish to handle division of property outside of court, if an agreement cannot be made, the courts will determine who will receive which assets.
- Child Support
- A child support agreement is meant to ensure that your child is adequately provided for. The amount of support required will typically depend on a variety of factors including each parent's income and the custody agreement.
- Spousal Support
- Also known as alimony, spousal support is sometimes awarded to a former spouse to help maintain their standard of living. The amount and duration of which alimony is required, if any, may depend on certain factors, such as the length of the marriage.
The decisions made regarding these elements will have a lasting impact on your family's future and should be handled with the utmost care.
