If a person wishes to terminate his or her marriage, he or she may
file for a divorce. In a divorce proceeding, the court will
terminate the marriage and determine the rights and
responsibilities of the divorcing parties regarding child custody,
child visitation, child support and spousal support (alimony). The
court will also redistribute marital assets.
Depending on where you reside and where your assets are, the
division of property can be a very simple or very complex process.
Disputes often arise during this phase of a divorce if the two
parties disagree as to who should receive which assets or property.
