Divorce is complicated both emotionally and legally. Because the terms of your divorce will directly affect your future in terms of both your financial and your parental rights, having professional legal guidance in your corner from the outset is in your best interest, and an experienced divorce attorney in Greenfield is standing by to help.

The Terms that Relate to Your Divorce

Your divorce will follow a course that is unique to you and your situation, but you will need to resolve each of the following terms that applies:

The Division of Marital Property

Every divorcing couple must address the matter of dividing their marital assets and debts. These include any assets obtained and any debts taken on during the course of the marriage – regardless of whose name is associated. California is what is known as a community property state, and as such, all marital property and debts are deemed to be owned equally by both spouses, which means they must be divided between you evenly upon divorce.

Child Custody Arrangements

If you and your divorcing spouse share children, you will need to address both legal and physical custody. Legal custody determines who will have the authority to make the primary decisions that are central to parenting moving forward, including decisions about the following:

  • Your children’s education
  • Your children’s religious upbringing
  • Your children’s health care
  • Your children’s extracurriculars

These decisions can be made by one of you, can be made by both of you, or can be divided between you according to the category of decision being made. 

Child Support

Child support payments help to ensure that both parents continue to support their children financially – in response to their financial ability to do so. The goal is providing the children with the same level of financial resources they would have enjoyed if the parents had remained together, and as a result, the parent who is the higher earner typically makes the child support payments. 


Alimony is reserved for those divorces that leave one ex unable to maintain financial independence while the other has the ability to provide financial assistance. In California, alimony that stems from marriages that last up to 10 years can be ordered for up to half the marriage’s length. Marriages that last longer than 10 years, however, are deemed long-term marriages, and there are no maximum constraints regarding the duration of alimony.
