Taking The Right Steps During The Divorce Process Is Important
When you decide to file for divorce, the key is to take the right steps from the very beginning to ensure the protection of your assets. In the state of Mississippi, there are 12 possible grounds for divorce. The court grants a “no-fault” divorce when a couple cites irreconcilable differences as the cause for the divorce. All the other divorce types require proof that one of the spouses is at fault for the deterioration of the marriage.
The ground on which you file for divorce can directly affect its outcome. For example, when deciding on whether to award alimony, a judge can consider one spouse’s misconduct. Similarly, a spouse’s moral fitness can affect a judge’s decision concerning child custody. If you want to protect your financial future and your relationship with your children, it is imperative that you also protect your reputation.
