In a divorce proceeding, the Court can do several things that affect the family.

  • End a Marriage legally and, if requested, restore your maiden name.
  • Divide property between spouses, regardless of whose name is on the title to those assets.
  • Divide certain debts and financial obligations between spouses, regardless of when they were incurred.
  • Decide who will have physical and legal custody of children.
  • Set up a Parenting Time schedule.
  • Order a parent to pay child support or otherwise provide financially for children.
  • Appoint a GAL (guardian ad litem) who advocates in the best interests of the children.
  • Appoint a PC (parenting coordinator) who will work with both parents to resolve disagreements over parenting time even after the Court case is concluded.
