The divorce process can take a toll on the parties involved even beyond the injuries already inflicted in a failed relationship. Divorces can be either contested or uncontested. There are statutory waiting times after a complaint for divorce is filed. These times are different depending on whether or not there are minor children involved.
Beyond the statutory considerations, there are many other decisions that must be considered. How will the assets and debt of the marriage be divided? Who will be the primary residential parent? How much parenting time will each parent have with their minor children post-divorce? How much child support will be paid and to or by which parent? Are there alimony issues to consider?
