Divorces come with many questions. Who will get the home you live in? What happens to your children or pets? How can you move forward with your divorce as quickly as possible? Here are a few questions and answers that may help.
When you are considering a divorce or plan to move out of your marital home, one thing you may want to do is to create a separation agreement. It's helpful to create this agreement ahead of your divorce if you and your spouse can get along and work together to do so, since it can save you time and energy later on. Your separation length may vary before your divorce, so this agreement may benefit you in the short term while you decide how to divide assets and take care of debts.
If you're in the military, you may have a few questions about how to collect child support or to enforce other agreements with your child's other parent. Here are some commonly asked questions and answers.
There are a few things you already know about marriage. If you get married, you might be able to share the same last name, you'll avoid paying child support for a child you and your wife or husband had when you weren't married, and you gain some tax benefits, too. There are some other benefits to marriage you may not have considered, though, that your attorney can walk you through.
