A divorce may be granted given on such grounds of incompatibility, irreconcilable differences, and simply a breakdown of a marriage where the union is undesirable. When a partner files, the court examines the relationship and all information available to determine a fair agreement for both parties.
In a traditional marriage, child custody rights are shared by both parties. Upon divorce or separation, one parent may take sole custody or both parents might share custody. Custody cases do not only involve the parents, but grandparents can also exercise their rights as well.
An individual may decide to formally become the legal guardian of a child and need legal counsel to navigate the process. These cases tend to be led by state law but sometimes, federal constitutional principles and statutes may come into play.
A legal guardian is one who has the authority to care for and act on the behalf of another person and their property. The most common uses for this law is to care for the elderly, a minor, or someone with a disability.
A prenuptial agreement is a contract design to establish the rights of both married parties in case of a separation, death, or divorce. A prenup is common when one or both parties have assets they wish to protect in the marriage agreement.
