If no children are involved and you and your spouse agree on everything, there is the possibility neither one of you will have to attend the final hearing. Instead, once all the paperwork has been filed with the court and has been reviewed, the court will most likely grant the dissolution of marriage, and sign the Final Judgment of Dissolution of Marriage. You will receive a copy of the legal papers in the mail. It’s that easy! Contact Lizbeth Potts Today
If you and your spouse are looking for a low-cost divorce and you have children, there are a few more steps involved in the process, but it is still easy, convenient, and cheap. When children are involved, you and your spouse will have to take a parenting class. Not together, but it is required and the certificate of completion must be filed with the court. You have to complete a Parenting Plan that spells out how you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse will exercise time sharing with your child(ren).Remember, it is what is in the best interest of the child as to how you work out the time sharing schedule. Child support will also have to be calculated. The parties fill out financial affidavits and documents, showing gross/net income, monthly expenses, assets and liabilities. The courts are most interested in your gross income, regardless of your monthly expenses. The numbers are put into a state-devised equation to determine child support. How many overnights, who pays for child care, medical insurance for the child(ren), and you and your spouse’s monthly income are all factors that are considered in the child support calculation.
