Issues to Address at the End of a Marriage

By KRP Law  Nov. 24, 2010 2:36p

At the end of any marriage, spouses will need to look to resolve specific issues related to four key topics: child custody and visitation, child support, spousal support and property division. These will come about in a litigated divorce, uncontested divorce or even a legal separation. How you resolve these is likely to have a financial and emotional impact on you and your spouse.

At KRP Law, we represent clients in Salem, Massachusetts. We understand that dealing with these matters can be difficult. It can turn a once friendly relationship between husband and wife into a case that can only be resolved with court intervention. When you have a competent divorce lawyer to protect your interests and guide you through the process in a swift and effective manner, you can handle such matters:

  • Child Custody - Who will get custody of your child or children? Will custody be shared? Will you have physical and/or legal custody?
  • Visitation - Will the non-custodial parent have visitation rights to see his or her child?
  • Child Support - Will the non-custodial parent be required to pay support to the custodial parent for the child or children? How much will this be?
  • Spousal Support - Will one spouse be required to pay the other a monthly support payment? What amount will this be, and for how long?
  • Property and Asset Division - What property is considered separate, and what is considered marital property? What will happen with the family home? How will all other property, assets and liabilities be divided between spouses?

In many of these matters, a resolution will come on a case-by-case basis. There is no set way that a divorce will be resolved, so it will be up to you and your spouse (and your attorneys) to handle these matters.
