Divorce terminates a marital union and all the legal obligations associated with that contract.
Divorce laws vary from state to state; however, all divorces will address specific issues, such as, alimony, child custody, visitation arrangements for children, child support, the allocation of parenting time, and the division of property–both real and personal.
A divorce differs from a dissolution in that certain legal requirements must be met before filing for divorce. For example, one may have to prove that a legal separation has occurred and that no cohabitation has occurred for at least a year.
Divorce often involves more contention over issues relating to custody, support, and the division of property.
