The General Concept
A divorce formally dissolves a marriage between two spouses and legally divides and specifies the ownership of certain property by each spouse.
If the divorcing parties are parents to minor children born to or adopted by them during the marriage, a divorce will also legally determine the aspects of custody regarding each minor child, such as: conservatorship, visitation, child support, and the provision of health and dental insurance.
