The complete divorce process consists of three main elements:

1) Dissolving the Marriage - the formal legal process by which the marriage is ended.

2) Financial Arrangements - the process of dividing up the marital assets and agreeing on maintenance/child support.

3) Childcare Arrangements - the process of deciding who the children of the marriage will live with (residency) and how much contact the non-resident parent will have.

To help all our members have a greater understanding of these processes, the Wikivorce team aims to publish a comprehensive, yet understandable, Step By Step Guide.
