There are many major issues in divorce cases that are intertwined. First, there is child custody. There is legal custody involving the responsibility for making major decisions regarding the education, religion, medical care, and physical custody or the child’s primary residence. In situations where parents cannot agree on these issues the court will make the decisions for the parents. A Guardian Ad Litem will likely be appointed to gather information and make recommendations to the court.

The second issue is child support. The amount of child support is based on a formula factoring both parents’ incomes, the number of children, age of the oldest child, and other factors.

Third is the issue of alimony or spousal support. There are many factors that are taken into consideration. Mainly, alimony weighs the need of one party for financial support and the ability of the other party to afford the amount. A review of both parties’ income and living expenses are thoroughly accounted for.

Fourth is the division of the mutual estate. This includes assets such as bank accounts, a house, pension, and business. Liabilities such and loans and credit cards are also divided. The State Law has a variety of factors that must be considered in dividing a property.
