Types of Divorces and Related Issues – Alimony, Child Support, Child Custody

A divorce legally dissolves a marriage. Although citizens are not guaranteed a constitutional right to divorce, all states recognize divorce because it serves the public good. In order to ensure that the public good is served, many states require a “cooling off period” which constitutes time after a married couple has legally separated, that they must take before any divorce proceedings are initiated. Courts in the United States recognize two types of divorces: absolute divorce and limited divorce. In order for a spouse to obtain an absolute divorce, courts require that the spouse show that their partner has committed some act of misconduct or wrongdoing. Grounds for an absolute divorce can include things such as infidelity or abandonment. Once an absolute divorce is granted, both parties’ statuses are reverted to single and both parties are able to remarry. Any property that the married couple has accumulated together is usually divided in half. Based on the circumstances surrounding the divorce, judgments will be made regarding child custody, alimony and child support.
