Divorce Law

There are basically two components in a divorce order: property division provisions and child-related provisions. The marital estate must be divided "equitably," which is not necessarily the same thing as "equally." Parental responsibilities (child custody) and child support orders must be in the best interests of the child(ren). Non-divorce orders, such as a paternity determination, may look much the same, but they may have a more narrow focus.

Divorce Procedure

Once the petition is filed, the court often conducts preliminary hearings, in contested cases, to determine interim custody, parenting time (visitation), and support orders. Thereafter, the parties exchange documents during the formal discovery phase. In addition, there may be a Guardian ad Litem and/or custody evaluator appointed before the matter proceeds to trial. Uncontested cases may bypass some or all of these requirements before proceeding directly to a prove-up for finalization. Non-divorce matters work in much the same way.
