What happens during the legal process of divorce will be determined by the laws in your state that govern divorce. How your state handles issues such as child support, property distribution and spousal support is invaluable knowledge to have when making the decision to divorce and when going through a divorce.

We are often asked, “What will the judge do?” Such a question is likely to weigh heavily on your mind when going through the divorce process and that is why you should become familiar with your state’s divorce laws.

Although judges have some discretion during a divorce, most rule based on law. Familiarity with your state’s divorce laws can keep down the second guessing and help you make informed decisions about your divorce.

Learn about the legal aspects of the divorce process in your state via the links below. Since divorce is handled differently jurisdiction by jurisdiction we encourage you to consult with a local divorce attorney for a full understanding of how these laws will affect you and your divorce.
