Scary Divorce Issues
Are you starting the process of divorce? There are some scary divorce issues that are often misunderstood. With the help on an attorney, you can tackle these issues and make them less scary.
Scary Divorce Issues | Calculating Spousal Support
New York State now has a formula in order to determine how much spousal support, if any, someone would have to pay. It’s going to depend on each spouse’s income. Generally, if there’s a great difference between the incomes, the spouse who receives less would get spousal support and the other spouse would pay it. If incomes are relatively close, then more than likely, no one will have to receive or pay spousal support the factor a court would look at is if it was a short term marriage, there may not be a need for spousal support.
Scary Divorce Issues | Diving Personal Belongings in a Divorce
In many divorce cases, each spouse has many personal belongings. These could be things like beds, dressers, clothes, etc. Typically, divorce attorneys don’t handle those belongings within the context of a divorce. Those things are better off being meditated between the spouses themselves. Paying an attorney is not ideal when dealing with whether a spouse gets to keep their own dressers. If a spouse brings property into the marriage, that can be taken out by them. It is theirs to keep. That is separate property. If during the course of the marriage, a spouse was specifically given an item, it is theirs to keep as well. Attorneys typically do not get involved in the division of things like pots and pans.
Scary Divorce Issues | Custody During A Pending Divorce
A common worry among divorcing parents is where the children will live while the divorce is pending. If both parties are living under the same roof, this issue is not addressed. In those cases, there will be a decision regarding where the child will live after the divorce. If, during the divorce, the parents live in separate places, there will typically be an agreement when each parent is going to see the children and when they are going to have time with the children.
