A divorce is one of the most difficult experiences in a person’s life. Although no one enters a marriage anticipating it will end in divorce, situations change and couples grow apart. While divorce may be the best option, it can still be an overwhelming process. Divorce becomes even more complex when children are involved or when the marriage involves high income or valuable assets. In a divorce proceeding, spouses tend to have different ideas regarding alimony, alimony pendente lite (“APL”)/spousal support, child support, child custody, and how to fairly allocate their assets and liabilities. When contemplating filing for divorce, it is essential to obtain competent and experienced legal representation.
