Q2. How does the court determine division of property?
A. The court generally identifies whether or not each asset is marital or non-marital. If an asset is determined to be marital that value is split 50/50 between the parties.

Q3. How does the court determine spousal support?
A. Spousal support is determined on a case by case basis. As a general rule, if the court is going to award spousal support, it takes into consideration the fixed expenses of the parties and thereafter tries to equalize the income between the payor of spousal support and the recipient of spousal support.
