- What is dealt with during a divorce? (2015) - Although the facts of each divorce are unique, there are a number of considerations that are common in all divorces, whether there are children involved or not. In general, there will be a division of assets and debt and a determination of whether spousal or child support should be paid by one spouse to the other. Financial statements completed by each spouse should include not only income and living expenses, but also an itemization of assets (e.g. bank and investment accounts, retirement and pension accounts, stocks, real estate, trusts, collections, cash) and debt (e.g. charge cards, loans). The financial statement is the primary informational summary used by the judge and attorneys for determining the financial condition of the spouse submitting this statement. Will there be a need for spousal support or payment of child support? Will one spouse be able to remain in the former marital house? Is there a need for an abuse prevention order? Does a spouse want to resume her maiden name after divorce? All of these matters are part of the divorce resolution. http://mavrideslaw.com/blog/
