One of the most common questions asked by couples going through a divorce is who will have to pay spousal support.

As a parent who is going through a divorce or planning on filing for divorce, you may be curious as to how child support will be calculated in your particular case. The terms of each child custody and child support agreement will be different, as no family situations are the same and neither are a child's individual needs. In our state there is a standard schedule which is used to determine the amount of support a child will be given. The combined gross monthly income of both parents, along with the number of children from the marriage who require support, are some of the primary factors used to determine the amount of child support which is to be paid. If you want to find out how much you can expect to pay or receive in child support payments, a divorce lawyer from our firm is only a phone call away.

When you are married, there are a few ways that property can be defined. If you owned property or inherited assets prior to the marriage, this can be considered separate property, so long as it was never mixed with marital property. Once you have legally married your spouse, property and assets obtained from that point forward are usually going to be considered marital property. When a couple gets divorced from one another, their property must be divided according to the state's equitable distribution laws related to the circumstances of the marriage and divorce.
