Divorce Thesis

No one likes the idea of divorce but sometimes there isn’t much of a choice in the matter. What ever the reason is here are so guide lines to getting a divorce and some resources that might help.

At Fault Divorce can include: adultery, physical or mental cruelty, desertion, alcohol or drug abuse, insanity, impotence or infecting the other spouse with a venereal disease confinement in prison, physical incapacity and incurable insanity. It all depends on your state.

No-fault divorce can be granted by either spouse in the marriage showing irreconcilable differences. This came about thanks to all the staged cases in various states. New York it was adultery, and in California it was physical harm. So much so that judges knew the couple mostly the women would be committing purgery.

Only 35 of the 50 states have fault divorce.

Child Custody may include:

(a) The love, affection, and other emotional ties existing between the parties involved and the child.
(b) The capacity and disposition of the parties involved to give the child love, affection, and guidance and continuation of the educating and raising of the child in its religion or creed, if any.
(c) The capacity and disposition of the parties involved to provide the child with food, clothing, medical care or other remedial care recognized and permitted under the laws of this State in place of medical care, and other material needs.
(d) The length of time the child has lived in a stable, satisfactory environment, and the desirability of maintaining continuity.
(e) The permanence as a family unit, of the existing or proposed custodial home or homes.
(f) The moral fitness of the parties involved.
(g) The mental and physical health of the parties involved.
(h) The home, school, and community record of the child.
(i) The reasonable preference of the child, if the court deems the child to be of sufficient age to express preference.
(j) The willingness and ability of each of the parents to facilitate and encourage a close and continuing parent-child relationship between the child and the other parent.
(k) Domestic violence, regardless of whether the violence was directed against, or witnessed by the child.
(l) Any other factor considered by the court to be relevant to a particular child custody dispute.
