What happens to a house you owned prior to marriage in a divorce?

When it comes time to get a divorce, there's a big difference between community property and separate property. Community property is subject to division and has to be split with your spouse. Separate property does not. Why, then, is your spouse trying to claim that the house you owned prior to your marriage isn't really your separate property?

Relieve some stress by preparing for your child custody hearing

You may have never thought you would be in this position. You and your spouse decided to go your separate ways. Now, amid all the other issues you must resolve, you try to negotiate an agreement regarding the custody of your children. However, it becomes clear that you will need to go to court in order to resolve this crucial issue.

Do you have to pay child support in the summer?

When you and your ex-spouse first divorced, the kids were small. Your job kept you busy throughout the week, so it only made sense for the kids to spend most of their time with your ex. Your child support agreement appropriately reflected the fact that the kids were generally in your ex-spouse's care.
