Dissolution of Marriage/Domestic Partnership
A Dissolution of Marriage/Domestic Partnership is a legal proceeding brought to dissolve a marriage/domestic partnership and return each party to the legal status of single. In the context of dissolution of marriage/ domestic partnership litigation, a party may request child custody and visitation orders, temporary exclusive use and possession of property orders and child support, spousal/partner support and attorney’s fees and costs orders. Some of these orders may be requested on a temporary basis while the litigation is pending before “permanent” orders are either agreed upon in a settlement or ordered by the court at trial. Depending on the circumstances of your case, it may be important to request temporary orders right away to protect children, obtain financial assistance or protect assets.
