When an Alabama resident is thinking about pursuing divorce, they may be intimidated by the legal complexities of the process. Most of us know someone who has been through a divorce and our ideas about how the actual legal process will go can vary greatly. So, what might you be getting into with a divorce case?
For starters, the facts of any given case are different, so your case may not proceed in the same way as others you may have heard about. But, the goal is the same: dissolution of the marriage. Most divorce cases will involve the issues of property and debt division, and alimony as well. In marriages with minor children involved, child custody and child support will need to be addressed too.
Although you may know before you even file the divorce case which legal issues you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse may need to address, sometimes people aren’t prepared for the wide range of emotions they go through as the case makes its way through the appropriate steps. Let’s face it – not all divorce decisions are mutually agreeable. Sometimes the divorcing couple will fight over every detail of the case. In some cases, one or both of the spouses finds that the impact of the divorce on their children has become overwhelming. There is more to consider in a divorce case than just the legal issues.
