  • Child custody – if the parents cannot agree on parenting issues, the courts will decide what happens based on the child’s “best interests.” Legal custody refers to who has the authority to make major decisions about the child’s upbringing, while physical custody is often referred to as residence. 
  • Child support –It is the child’s right, determined by a table amount based on the number of children, parenting schedule, and primary residence.  
  • Spousal support – is based on the means of the spouse who is paying and the needs of the spouse receiving the payments. It is awarded based on income differences, how long you lived together as a couple and whether one spouse missed career opportunities to benefit the other spouse. 
  • Property division – family legislation presumes that married spouses equally contribute to property acquired during the marriage. To ensure you get what you are owed, you have to apply for an equalization of respective net family properties.
