The end of marriage is a complicated time. You have to learn how to navigate the legal system at a time when you don’t have the support of the person you thought you’d have for life. Determining things like who gets to stay in the house and where the kids will live can be a challenge. Unfortunately, you will have to handle these matters and others when you choose to file for divorce.

Throughout the divorce process, you are going to have to make decisions that can impact the rest of your life. This includes things like who gets what property, who is going to pay which debts and what’s going to happen with the children. Each decision must be made based on current laws and what you feel is best for your needs.

For many people who are ending a marriage, the terms of the divorce are made through mediation. This process involves you and your ex negotiating with each other to split everything up. You will do this for property division and child custody. The court will issue the child support order based on several factors contained within the law.
