A ‘prenup’ is a contract or an agreement made between a couple before their marriage. This agreement outlines details about the couple’s finances and other monetary claims in case of the breakdown of the relationship. A prenup can include the following items:
Division of property after separation
Decisions on child-rearing
Properties bought by each spouse during their marriage
Child custody access
The term custody in the context of a separation or divorce, involves the right of a parent to make decisions that looks after the welfare of their children. Decisions like their child’s education, religious upbringing, medical decisions, and decisions relating to a child’s extra-curricular activity. Parents can agree to custody in the form of sole custody, or they can share the parenting responsibility in a joint custody scenario. If you are already separated or separating from your partner, give Orcus Law LLP a call today to speak with one of our child custody lawyers.
After divorce or separation, and once it is finalized which parent the child or children will reside in, the next step is a matter of child support. According to the Federal Child Support Guidelines table, if a child resides with one parent more than 60% of the time, he/she becomes the primary resident parent and recipient of child support. If the child/ren reside with both parents equally then the child support is split based on the income earned by either parent. The parent with the higher income pays a higher amount that the parent earning a lower income. To discuss your child support needs with our lawyers, schedule an appointment with Orcus Law LLP today.
Parties after divorce or separated with children need to decide where their children will live, and with which party. Depending on the welfare of the child or the best interests of the child, parties who have an amicable relationship with one another can come up with a mutual agreement or adhere to a decision ordered by the court. The courts will only consider what is best for your child in reaching such a decision.
