- Extreme Cruelty;
- Wilful Desertion;
- Wilful Neglect;
- Habitual Intemperance;
- Conviction of Felony;
- When either the husband or wife has become permanently insane.
Although you may assert grounds other than irreconcilable differences, the other specified grounds require that you provide evidence of those grounds for divorce. The assertion of irreconcilable differences is typically the recommended and most cost effective approach. Of course, there are specific situations where the other grounds are more beneficial. However, whether that is advisable requires a detailed analysis of your unique situation.
Child Custody Disputes
When the court looks at who should be receiving either legal or physical custody of the minor children, the court takes a look at the whole picture. They essentially look at all factors and issues that may be affecting the "best interests" of the child. However, the court specifically looks at the following statutory factors:
- The wishes of the child’s parent or parents as to his or her custody;
- The wishes of the child as to his or her custodian;
- The interaction and interrelationship of the child with his or her parent or parents, and his or her siblings;
- The child’s adjustment to his or her home, school, and community;
- The character and circumstances of all individuals involved;
- The need to promote continuity and stability in the life of the child; and
- Domestic violence, whether or not in the presence of the child or children at issue.
