Many questions plague those going through a divorce or relationship breakdown: Am I eleigible for spousal support? Will I get custody of my children? ow can I find and hire a good lawyer? What are other alternatives to a lengthy and messy court battle? How will this divorce affect my income tax and my personal finances? The list goes on...
