Marriage is a unique relationship.  The government grants a couple the permission to get married by issuing a marriage license, and only the government (through the courts) can end a marriage by granting a divorce.  A court with jurisdiction to hear a divorce case has the power to decide all matters which relate to the marriage.

Some divorces may be less complicated because the parties have agreed concerning how to resolve these issues.  By contrast, contested cases, where there is disagreement between the parties, can be complicated and are often emotional and challenging .

Each divorce case is unique since every family is different.  The subject matter considered by the court is determined by the parties and which legal issues they elect to litigate.  Some areas of dispute may include the following:

  • Division of assets and debts
  • Child custody and child support
  • Alimony
  • Possession and ownership of the marital home
  • Division of family businesses
  • Any other issues which impact the couple or the family
