Asset and Debt
Marital property is divided equitably, not necessarily equally, and valuation of assets and implantation of a property and debt division can be complex in some cases.
Maintenance (Alimony) & Child Support
Child support is determined by a formula that looks at the parent’s incomes, the parenting schedule, and other factors. Maintenance or alimony is based on a discretionary formula that considers the parties’ incomes, the length of the marriage, and other factors.
If there are minor children, there must be provisions for child custody (allocation of parental responsibility or APR) that include both parenting time and the sharing of decision making responsibility for the children.
