When people get married, they intend to be together forever. They dream of the happy times and make plans to turn those dreams into reality. However, reality is rarely what people plan it to be. Unfortunately, it is usually a lot more complicated, messy, and emotional.
In the real world, the reality is that marriages often end in divorce. For whatever reason, many times couples just cannot move forward together. But in order to start their new separate lives, these individuals must deal with a variety of family law issues. These issues often fall into two main categories: children and property.
First, a couple needs to resolve all issues related to the couple’s children. This includes determining child custody, child support, and a parenting plan. Figuring out these matters is often extremely emotional since no parent likes to lose time with his or her children. Though these issues may be negotiated, if an agreement cannot be reached a judge will make the decisions.
Next, divorcing couples have to deal with their property, meaning they have to split their assets and their debts. They must consider how to handle retirement accounts, investments, and their home. Additionally, the issue of alimony needs to be addressed. These issues can be legally complicated and involve a great deal of money. Making these decisions, and ensuring fairness, is extremely important since they will likely affect a person’s financial health for a long time to come.
