What has to be done to get a divorce?
While many people know what a divorce is, most don’t know what it entails. When filing for a divorce, or think about filing for one, people often wonder what types of issues or problems are going to come up while the divorce is being filed for. Luckily, for anyone who may be confused about what a divorce really includes, the section is meant to help clear it up.
The term “divorce” itself relates to ending a legal marriage and returning both parties to having the status of an unmarried person. Family law attorneys also tend to include the following parts and sub-parts that are legally included within a divorce:
- Real estate division and distribution between both parties;
- Dividing up personal property ranging from pets to cars;
- Dividing community property retirement accounts, if there are any in place;
- Dividing community property investments;
