One of the most important concepts in all divorce proceedings is whether the parties property is separate or marital. With a few exceptions, all property acquired during the marriage is considered marital and subject to equitable distribution. However, the date of separation is important because property acquired after the date of separation is considered that spouse's separate property.
Child support is determined by a mandatory child support guideline that is used in every case. The most important factors in determining child support are each parent's income and the amount of time each parent actually cares for the children.
Spousal support can be granted from the outset of the divorce process. This temporary support can be determined early in the proceedings. Setting the proper amount of temporary spousal support is important because it will often influence the amount of support to be paid in years to come.
Whether you have been served with divorce papers or you would like to file for a divorce, you will go through a complicated and potentially difficult time of your life.
