A look at the divorce process

In some ways, there is a timeline involved with the divorce process even after the divorce is concluded and the parties begin to move on with their lives and life invariably changes as they move forward into the future. This is true in circumstances of military divorce, but also in circumstances of civilian divorce as well. The impact of divorce can be felt well into the future, which is why the family law process provides resources to help couples through the divorce process and beyond.

When a couple has made the difficult decision to divorce, they will need to pursue the claim in court. There are two grounds for divorce in Mississippi, including fault and no-fault, so it is important to be familiar with what each of those are. The divorce can also be contested or uncontested. Next, divorcing couples will need to address important divorce-related considerations, including property division, alimony, child support and child custody. Divorcing military couples may also need to consider pensions and other issues as well.

Because each of these issues can be complex and, at times, understandably emotional, the family law process is available to help guide divorcing couples, but also when they cannot reach an agreement which they are encouraged to do whenever possible. Once a divorce settlement is reach, the couple will have a child custody agreement and there will also be other important aspects of the settlement. It is helpful for them to know how to enforce the child custody agreements through the court, but that they are also aware that modifications to the divorce settlement may be possible in some circumstances. It is valuable for divorcing couples to know how to seek a divorce-related modification when necessary.

Divorce can be a challenging process, but family law resources are available to guide divorcing couples every step of the way, including through a military divorce. It is valuable for couples considering a divorce to be familiar not only with the resources available to them, but with the overall process and what it will look like for them, their family and situation.
