This year’s big change was in the area of divorce filing. Next year in July will see changes in Custody or Allocation of Parental Responsibilities as it will be called.
Maintenance (alimony) will be calculated based on income of parents but also take into account time spent with the children. Van predicts poorer parents will try to pay less by spending more time “parenting”
Different factors go into calculating the amount such as length of marriage, children from a previous marriage, physical impairments to hinder working.
Give Van a call if you know someone considering or filing for divorce and need legal counsel.
