Golden Valley Divorce Lawyer
Divorce seems like a daunting process. It can be easy, if the parties agree on everything, but it can be difficult emotionally. If the divorce is contested, then the emotion and the stress from the legal process can compound one another, and result in you needing a great deal of support. Fortunately, you can speak with a Golden Valley divorce lawyer who has your best interest at heart, and who will work hard for you.
There are two types of custody: physical and legal. A parent with physical custody provides the main home for the children. A parent with legal custody can make decisions regarding the child’s upbringing. A routine parenting time schedule, including summer vacation, holidays, non-school days, etc., will be drafted so that the non-custodial parent can have ample time with a child.
The non-custodial parent will be ordered to pay child support. The gross income of both parents is considered, along with the amount of parenting time the non-custodial parent has with the child. Child support can be modified by either party at a later date, if there is a change in income.
Our Your Golden Valley divorce lawyers will help you receive the assets that you are entitled too. Most often, these means an equal division of the property and debts of the marriage.
Alimony is awarded when one party makes less money than the other. Of course, the amount is based upon need, and upon the incomes of both parties.
Attorney’s fees can add up over time. If it is found that a party acts in bad faith, they may be ordered to pay the other party’s fees. In addition, the court can award fees on a “need” basis, if one party has the ability to pay the other’s fees and costs.
