A divorce is the legal termination of a marriage which often involves the division of assets and debts as well as child custody and a visitation schedule, assuming children were parented or adopted during the marriage. Depending on the status of the party the court may also order short or long term spousal support for one of the parties. This determination is based upon the need of the party requesting spousal support as well as the ability of the second party to pay such support.
Although a divorce can be granted for fault, usually most divorces cite irreconcilable differences as the basis for the divorce. However, in other instances the court may grant the divorce on the grounds of fault which includes adultery, abandonment and physical or mental abuse. If a divorce is granted on one of the fault categories it can affect the distribution of assets and debts.
