1.What are some of the issues that need to be sorted out when spouses decide to separate?
- If you have accumulated property during the course of your marriage (home, vehicles, retirement plan funds, goods etc…) you will need to sort those out. The majority of couples will also have accumulated some debts during the marriage. With few exceptions, all property and debt acquired during the marriage are considered marital and will need to be divided in some way. This can be one of the most important and challenging parts of a divorce.
- Another major part of many divorces is who will get custody of the children. If you have all been living together as a family up until the time of separation, this will be a difficult transition for everyone. There are many factors to be considered when making decision on who will receive custody and how much time each parent will spend with the children. When disagreements between parents arise, this process can be lengthy.
