Marriage is a huge milestone for couples. A lot of time and money is spent planning a wedding, and for everything to go as planned. Yet while a wedding makes for a very exciting day, there are several legal matters that need to be taken care of as well.
Marriage is a huge commitment that involves several legal matters and, if not taken seriously, could result in a potential divorce. Therefore, couples often turn to prenuptial agreements prior to marriage in order to keep their assets accounted for and to potentially save the marriage. For many couples, this is an excellent opportunity to determine marital assets.
A divorce can be one of the most unpleasant experiences in a family’s life, especially when much time has been put into the relationship and in trying to give the best quality of life possible to everyone involved.
A child is a beautiful gift. Both parents are typically happy to bond with their child and give him or her the best life possible. However, there are situations when a father is not present when his child is born—an alleged father may be unaware that he is actually the biological father of a child.
When caring for a child, parents and legal guardians need to be financially and emotionally capable of supporting a child to the best of their ability. Moreover, they must provide adequate care including supervision, food, clothes, medical care, and housing.
A divorce makes for a very unpleasant experience in a couple’s life. Financially and emotionally, these times can be very difficult. However, effectively communicating the provisions following the finalization of a divorce can make the process easier, and several factors need to be determined with regard to spousal support.
Being the victim of domestic violence is one of the worst situations a person can experience. Hence, it is essential that domestic violence victims, and those with loved ones affected by domestic violence, be aware of available support systems in his or her geographical location.
When going through a divorce, each spouse may have certain assets that he or she desires to keep—the marital home, family gifts, a boat, bank accounts, pensions, etc. Therefore, when it comes time to divide these assets, there may be tension. Hence, when dividing property and assets, each spouse needs to have a thorough understanding of the process.
