What is the best way to settle property issues?
How is Custody Determined?
What if the party ordered to pay support is not fulfilling their obligation?
Both spouses can minimize trial time and cost by entering into an agreement. This type of agreements settles the rights and responsibilities of each party concerning the issues of child custody, visitation, support, personal property, etc. It must be fair as well as complete and detailed. Both parties must be in agreement. Of course, that’s not always possible so you may need to go to a full hearing. This agreement carries the weight of a court order.
Similar to property issues, child custody is best agreed on by both parties. Contrary to popular belief, men often obtain full custody in the divorce. The court will always base custody issues on the best interest of the child.
Child support will be ordered by the court at the time of final judgment. A party who is obligated to pay child support or spousal support under an order of the court must continue to do so unless and until the court changes or terminates that obligation. If a party is not paying support, the court can use its contempt powers to punish the party who is not paying the support and to order that the arrange (past due support) be paid. The receiving spouse can always go the court for assistance,and in most cases the attorney general office will help the receiving spouse obtain payment.
