The purpose of divorce proceedings is not only to dissolve the marriage and possibly decide which of the spouses is to blame for its breakdown.
As part of a divorce case, spouses may also fight for maintenance for themselves (regardless of the fight for the child support). If you have a minor child or children from a marriage, the divorce court will also determine the issues of parental authority over these children, regulate contact with them and pay the due support.
The court will also establish the rules for the use of the shared apartment for the time the spouses live there after the divorce. If the spouses reach an agreement, a quick division of their joint marital property is also possible as part of a divorce case.
