The issues with which one must deal in dissolving a marital relationship are summarized via the acronym "PEACE."
If children are involved, a Parenting Plan describing parental responsibility and time sharing arrangements Mom and Dad will have with their children should be completed by the parents themselves. If parents cannot agree on a Parenting Plan, a judge will create one for them. Either way, creation of a Parenting Plan is part of the dissolution of marriage process.
The parties must divide their property (assets and liabilities). The starting point is to separate their property into two general categories: Nonmarital (acquired before the marriage or as the sole recipient of a gift or other such conveyance from a third party) and marital (acquired during the marriage). Nonmarital property belongs exclusively to the recipient. Marital property must be "equitably" (fairly) divided. This can but does not necessarily mean that the property will be equally divided.
Depending upon the length of the parties' marriage, one party might have a "need" for assistance in meeting his/her expenses after the marriage and the other party might have the ability to make a contribution to that parties' expenses. Hence, alimony (spousal support) might be a consideration in the divorce action.
Again, if children are involved, the total income of both parties is reduced to a net amount of income and, utilizing the Child Support Guidelines, child support is determined based upon the number of children. Each parent's child support obligation is determined by a formula based upon, among other factors, the number of overnights children spend with each parent.
This is the catch all category. The major component in this category is usually attorney's fees. If one party has the need for a contribution to his/her attorney's fees during the divorce process and the other party has the ability to pay such a contribution, attorney's fees can be part of the divorce process.
In summary, PEACE be with you if you are dealing with a dissolution of marriage action.
