No one gets married with the intention of getting divorced, and yet it is estimated that fifty percent of all marriages end in divorce. The divorce process generally involves reaching agreements or obtaining court rulings on the following issues:
The Division of Real and Personal Property (and Debt)
Child Custody, Parenting Time, and Child Support
Spousal Support (Alimony
The negative behaviors of one or both parties to the marriage (fault) can affect some or all of these issues. However, it should be remembered that it is not necessary to prove "fault" in order to obtain a divorce.
If both parties agree to the divorce and the outcome of the above issues, the divorce may be uncontested and the role of an attorney can be limited. If agreement does not exist on any or all issues, then traditional or collaborative divorce proceedings must be pursued and it is in the best interest of each party to retain a family law attorney. In such instance, is is often a good idea to have orders entered in the case at the begnning whereby assets are 'frozen' and the status quo maintained.
