What happens when a man files for divorce?

It is a very difficult decision for both spouse to file for divorce, but they need to follow the law in order to protect their rights and the childrens best interest. When one spouse files for divorce, legal separation is not automatically granted. Only if there are exceptional circumstances (such as: abuse, drug addiction, illegal activities) may the court grant a spouse legal separation. If a court grants a spouse legal separation, they have the same rights and responsibilities as spouses have during marriage. If a spouse wants to file for divorce, they must do so by filing a petition with the court. The petitioner has the right to ask the court for all of their marital property and debts and also any separate property that was acquired after marriage (such as stocks or mutual funds). When a spouse asks for their marital property and debts and any separate property, they must provide proof of their ownership. In addition, when marital property is being divided between spouses during divorce, each party must receive an equitable share of the assets (this means that one party does not get more than what is fair given their contribution to the marriage).The process of filing for divorce can be long, confusing and emotionally painful. It is important to work with someone who can help you navigate through this difficult time.
