Divorce Procedure

Family law cases are tangled with high stakes – children, property, money, in addition to many other items. Situations where parties are able to come to a mutually agreed upon settlement are always favored and our firm encourages and hopes that you are able to settle your case without the expense and stress of litigation. However, while an amicable and acceptable settlement agreement where the parties come to a full agreement regarding the issues surrounding their family law matter is ideal, unfortunately parties cannot always agree to settlement terms and must litigate their case before the court. Should litigation become necessary in your case, Attorney Moore has extensive trial experience and litigation practice in divorce, custody, child support, paternity, and related family law matters and will relentlessly and aggressively litigate your rights in court.
When minor children involved, child custody/time-sharing, as well as child support, must be addressed. Family law matters with minor children involved must include what is called a “Parenting Plan”. Parenting plans must be sufficiently detailed to instruct and govern the parties in relation to how the parties will raise the children after separation. A parenting plan must be drafted and agreed upon by the parties or the terms ordered by the Court and must address components like time-sharing/custody, division of holidays, school designation for the minor children, and any other issue pertaining to the parties’ children.

In addition, if a spouse or both spouses are in the military there are additional issues to be resolved.  Our military divorce attorneys are experienced and knowledgeable in all issues that confront military personnel upon divorce.

Aside from issues relating to children, divorces have a heavy emphasis on financial issues. Accordingly, it is incredibly important that you retain an attorney who is well versed in property/asset and debt division, in addition to complex financial issues. Attorney Moore has extensive experience in complex financial issues that arise in family law cases.

A main component of family law includes the equitable distribution of marital property – that is, assets and debts acquired during the marriage. This includes division of retirement accounts, bank accounts, property such as real property and personal property (tangible and intangible). Equitable distribution also encompasses the determination of marital and non-marital property. Non-marital property is a complicated issue in family law and if you have an issue relating to non-marital property, you should contact an attorney to help guide you through issues relating to non-marital property as certain actions throughout the marriage could change the nature of assets to convert from non-marital to marital property.

Upon the equitable division of marital assets and debts, whether and to what extent a spouse is entitled to alimony/spousal support is then generally addressed. Alimony, also known as “spousal support” can come in a number of different varieties and depends on two factors (1) one parties’ need for alimony/spousal support, and (2) the other party’s ability to pay alimony/spousal support to the spouse demonstrating the need for the monetary support after separation by the parties. There is no formula to derive how alimony/spousal support is calculated but depends largely on the lifestyle enjoyed by the parties during the course of the marriage and the parties’ respective financial situations.
