Divorce is a sad reality for many married couples. Statistics have shown that up to 50% of marriages will end in divorce. It is never a pretty affair.
The termination of a marriage is always a traumatic experience for the parties involved. Children are especially affected by the split of their parents. It is vitally important that any resolution in a divorce ensures that the parties can afford to live separately and the children are able to maintain the relationship they have established with mom and dad.
It is always in the children’s best interest to resolve matters of child custody, child support and child visitation as amicabily and quickly as possible. However, in situations where one parent has done acts which harm the other spouse or the children, it may not be in the best interest of the children to allow wide open possession. This must be fought in the strongest possilbe way.
Property and debt division is always part of a marital separation. Although generally the court will look to equitably divide debts and assets, this decision will be skewed by issues such as fault in the divorce and the relative abilities of the parties to support themselves.
