Divorce is never easy. Emotions are raw, and the pain of losing a life partner can cloud an otherwise good judgment. On top of that, divorce laws are complicated, especially when children or property are involved.
Depending on the state, property acquired by either spouse during marriage can be divided as equitable distribution or as community property. Custody of children is full of nuances, but the main theme in most states remains "best interest of the child." The state where marriage took place or the length of residence of the spouses in a certain state may also come into play when figuring out divorce mechanics.
