However, it is important that you are fully aware of the steps involved and what can happen in each step so you know what to expect. Each state has its own laws for how they handle divorces but there are some similarities across all states when handling this legal proceeding. One thing that remains constant with no variation from one state to another is that filing paperwork or initiating any movement towards a divorce requires both parties agreement on an annulment decree which legally dissolves your marriage as well as something called "grounds" which separate couples who want out of marriage will need before being granted permission by courts.

The Division of Assets

It is important to know how divorce courts divide assets. This is usually done by considering the length of the marriage and when the said assets were acquired to qualify for "equitable distribution." Equitable means that both parties are receiving an equal share in their financial holdings during a divorce.
