- How long will divorce take?
Unfortunately, the court calendars are very full, so divorce is a lot like taking a number and waiting your turn. This can take anywhere from months to even years. Even after a divorce order is made, it will take six months to become final. As you might expect, a more complicated case will take longer, and a simpler case will not take as long. Please contact me to discuss the particulars of your situation.
- How much will child support and spousal support be?
Child support and spousal support are calculated using a formula fixed by state law. The factors which determine these amounts include your income, your spouse’s income, the number of children, the timeshare with the children, and whether support payments are made for children of a different relationship.
- What will my timeshare with the children be?
The standard the court uses is what is in the best interests of the children. The court will take into account each parent’s history of caring for the children and their future ability and willingness to do so. Each case is different. Your attorney will advocate for a fair and practical timeshare with your children.
