Mention the word “divorce” to many people who have not gone through the process themselves, and many of them likely think of a fairly boilerplate and seamless process.
Nothing could be further from the truth, actually, with family law considerations in a divorce ranging widely from case to case. In fact, there is flatly no such thing as a “typical” divorce.
Truthfully, that shouldn’t be surprising, given that couples and families are unique in every instance. In legal matters where people themselves — and often their most fundamental needs and rights — are centrally implicated, every case will be markedly different.
That is what makes family law and its practice a complex broth. Consider that one divorce might involve a civilian couple, while another dissolution features married military partners. Some divorcing couples have children. Others have pets. Some have both. Some decouplings will necessarily involve issues surrounding child custody/visitation, child support and alimony (spousal maintenance), while others will be devoid of such concerns. In some divorces, negotiations regarding asset distribution will be of primary importance, while in others a marital contract (that is, a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement) might exist that spells out an agreed-upon outcome in detail.
The list of potentials goes on, nearly indefinitely. Grandparents’ interests might be invoked in the divorce process. A family business or professional practice might need to be accurately valued. A parenting plan that incorporates provisions on health care, religion, schooling, sports participation and other matters might need to be crafted.
