There are THREE areas that require resolution in a contested family law matter
[ ONE ]
parenting time and decision making
This refers to when you and your former spouse care for your children and how you make major decisions regarding their general welfare, health and education.
[ TWO ]
child and spousal support
Each family has different financial circumstances that may require one spouse to pay child and/or spousal support to the other.
[ THREE ]
EQUALIZATION OF NET FAMILY PROPERTY
This is commonly referred to as a division of the assets that have accumulated during your relationship. There are different rules if you are married as opposed to living common law.
