Dissolution of a marriage is an unfortunate but necessary event. In a bid to facilitate a clean break and one in which neither party shall express displeasure or dissatisfaction with the terms and conditions of divorce at a later date, drawing up comprehensive and appropriate divorce papers is a necessity.
A divorce paper is a court pleading which starts the divorce in the legal system. This document is usually served to the other spouse by a law enforcement official or a deputy sheriff. The divorce paper starts with the name of the jurisdiction where the case has been presented and moves on to mention the names of the petitioner and respondent who have proposed the dissolution of marriage. Eventually it specifies the age and occupation of the parties involved.
The divorce paper details the grounds, whether physical, emotional or financial consequent to which the couple lays down irreconcilable differences and which in turn leads to the irretrievable breakdown of marriage. Children, whether borne by the couple or adopted are mentioned in the divorce papers and a subsequent ruling regarding their custody is proposed.
Since a marriage may also have pre and post marital property, these also find singular mentions in the document lest these cause problems at a later date. Any assets belonging to either spouse before marriage are assigned to them individually and an equal or mutual consent is sought for post marital properties.
In short, divorce paper is a comprehensive document which clearly defines terms by which neither party would stand negatively affected. Needless to say, one needs to hire an efficient lawyer who will deftly handle divorce proceedings.
