Many different legal issues are brought up during the process of a divorce. If you have children, be prepared to handle matters of child custody, child support payments, visitation rights, and visitation schedules. You will need to determine if you want to hold joint custody or if one parent wants sole custody. Prepare to have your behavior and income analyzed carefully in order to determine what works best for your child and spouse.
Regardless of whether or not you have children, alimony might also be something you deal with. Spousal support will usually be determined based on who has a higher income. It is used to help pad the other spouse's income while they readjust to living on a reduced budget. Related to finances, you will legally need to deal with tax ramifications. This includes who gets to claim the children as exemptions, and whether or not any alimony payments are eligible for exemption status.
