Many decisions must be made when you are going through a divorce. You will need to determine how to divide your assets and debts, whether or not to include spousal support, and if any other financial issues need to be addressed. We can help you understand the implications of these decisions and ensure that you are making the best choices for your future. If you have children, you must determine custody and visitation arrangements. You will also need to address any outstanding child support issues.

Child Custody

When it comes to child custody, the court will consider the child’s best interests. Factors such as the child’s age, health, and relationship with each parent will be thought of for the child. The court may also consider the parental ability to care for the child and provide a stable home environment. In some cases, joint custody may be awarded, which means both parents have legal and physical custody of the child. However, in other cases, one parent may be given sole custody.

The visitation schedule will be based on the custodial arrangement. The non-custodial parent typically has visitation rights, but these can be limited if there are concerns about the child’s safety. The visitation schedule can be flexible to accommodate the needs of both parents and the child.



Alimony is handled in several ways. The most common way is for the court to order one spouse to pay the other a certain amount each month. Alimony is usually based on the paying spouse’s income and the receiving spouse’s needs. The court may also order one spouse to pay a lump sum of money to the other spouse, which is then used to pay for expenses related to the divorce. The court may also order one spouse to pay the other spouse’s attorney’s fees. Finally, the court may order one spouse to pay the other spouse’s medical bills or make other arrangements to pay these bills.

There are a number of factors that the court will consider when making its decision about alimony. These include the length of the marriage, financial needs of each spouse, ability of each spouse to pay alimony, and the contribution of each spouse to the marriage. The court may also consider any other factor it considers relevant to the case.

It is important to note that alimony is not always awarded in divorce court. The court may decide that it is not necessary or fair to award alimony in a particular case. If you are seeking alimony, you should speak to an experienced divorce attorney who can help you understand the law and the factors that the court will consider in your case.

Division of Assets

The division of assets and debts is another important issue that is addressed in divorce court. The court will consider a number of factors in determining how to divide these items, such as the length of the marriage, the earning capacity of each spouse, and any previous agreements between the spouses. The judge will also look at estates or homes, businesses, retirement accounts, bank accounts, etc.
