Divorce Expectations: Are Yours Realistic or Unrealistic?

For a Spouse (Husband or Wife)

If you are a wife and mother or husband and father going through a divorce, maybe you have relied on the other spouse for finances and child support and stayed at home for last few years to take care of the little ones. Perhaps you are frightened and worried that you won’t be able to make it financially on your own? That’s not necessarily the case. Typically, when you divorce someone under these sort of circumstances, you could have a good chance of qualifying for alimony and child support. Alimony is the court ordered money that must be paid by the to the other spouse after a divorce or separation. Child support or the court ordered payments that must be paid to help take care of the child. If you are going through a divorce and feel that you are owed these things, but are not sure how to go about them, call the divorce lawyers at Deputy and Mizell.


For the Children

As a new child of divorce, it can feel like your whole world is changing. You can go from living in one place full-time to living in two places, part-time. Children may also have to change schools and be around new kids they have never met before. The atmosphere for a child going through a divorce can completely change, all depending on the custody determination. If one parent gets sole custody, then they may not see the other parent much at all. If two parents get joint custody, then the child could spend half his or her time with each parent.
