One of the biggest questions with custody is what to do if your child falls ill. While many parents plan for the odd sick day here and there, a child who needs more medical care might cause the custody schedule you come up with to bend until it breaks.
It's probably not something most people think about when there are larger issues at play, but what do you think would happen if you were forced to quarantine with a spouse that you're divorcing? What would happen if you were forced to stay close to someone who you didn't get along with well anymore?
Spousal support isn't necessarily something you're going to be able to live on, but it can be a great help as you try to get on your feet. If you were supporting your spouse in the past but lost your job or raised a family while they worked, it's only fair to ask that they provide you with support while you get your career on track.
When you're getting a divorce, there is sometimes the reality that you could file in one of two different states (or more). Usually, the state where you hold residency will be where you file, but you might opt to file in the state where you got married or in the state where your spouse lives.
There is no question that even the easiest divorce can cause stress. After all, you are ending a relationship that you did think was going to last. You built on that relationship with the hope that you'd stay together.
