Navigating The Challenges Of Divorce

Nobody enters a marriage expecting to someday get divorced. Yet the reality of divorce is exceedingly common. When divorce happens, it's important not to dwell on regrets, but rather to focus on your needs and priorities for the road ahead.

Divorce involves much more than just ending the marriage. You must also resolve issues regarding any children you have together as well as your property and finances. The process can be lengthy and complicated. There are many legal components to divorce, including:

  • Child custody arrangements, if there are minor children
  • Child support obligations
  • Division of property and debts
  • Maintenance (also called spousal support or alimony)

If you have a prenuptial agreement in place, some of these issues may be subject to that agreement, unless one party challenges the prenup in court.
