Divorce Areas of Practice
Although no two divorces are identical, most of them will have the same core issues that will have to be fully addressed. Such issues include debt division, asset division and matters associated with property division / equitable distribution. In some cases, a judge will award
alimony / maintenance to one of the spouses. Where there are children involved, the parents will have to decide upon
child custody, visitation and
child support. If the parents cannot come to an agreement on such matters, the court will have to step in and decide for them. In virtually all cases, the court will make its decisions based on what's in the best interest of the children.
