During marriage, two parties usually combine finances and property. They also frequently share parental responsibilities. Undoing a marriage can be a complicated procedure, requiring both the division of accrued wealth and the determination of appropriate spousal and/or child support.
While many think of the divorce as the first part of this process, in reality it is often the very last. Many steps often precede the formal divorce application. In most cases, it is beneficial to work out these details prior to the formal divorce as it will affect both parties’ rights and entitlements. Occasionally, there are certain circumstances in which it is best for the formal divorce to precede certain steps of separation. To ensure that you are properly advised and take the best course in your separation, you need an experienced legal team.
