When a wife or husband realizes that a marriage is over, they need to take the proper steps to safeguard their future. Safe steps include obtaining an uncontested divorce when possible and a contested divorce when necessary. Spouses who are divorcing must negotiate or litigate their property issues correctly. Once an agreement is made or an order is entered, the division of assets cannot be negotiated again.
Safe steps include creating custody orders, parenting plans, and support orders that are in the best interests of the children – whether the parents are married or not. Alimony awards can help a spouse who cannot support herself or himself get the funds they need to acquire an education or skills for a new job. Spouses who are unable to work due to a disability or old age may be entitled to long-term alimony.
