Principle of Child Custody

 

There are three types of custodies granted in Maine, based on the best interests of the minor. All responsibilities, concerning the child's welfare, are divided; either all to one parent, or proportionately. These responsibilities include home, support, education, health care, religious and moral upbringing and parent child contact. Parents are required to inform the other parent about any major changes. Either one parent can have exclusive responsibilities or both can share responsibilities and make joint decisions.

Major factors to be taken under consideration when making this decision of custody include the following:

Rules for Property Distribution

Any one spouse may be ordered to pay a sufficient alimony to the other partner. In some cases, the other partner's property might be given to the partner to be paid alimony to. In some cases, the spouse may also be awarded transitional support for short term needs. There are many factors that this decision depends on, including length or marriage, age of the spouses and their financial and vocational conditions.

One or both parents may be ordered to pay child support. This support may include child's health insurance costs. The guidelines for support are included in The Official Child Support Guidelines. There are certain reasons for deviating from these guidelines, such as the following:

If one of the spouses declares that there are no irreconcilable differences, or if the divorce is challenged and children are involved, meditation and counseling are a must in Maine.

Filing Pro Se Divorce

 

There is no need of a lawyer when applying for divorce in the state of Maine. A divorce case which is filed without any help of an attorney in any of the states is known as Pro Se Divorce.

Literally, Pro Se is a Latin phrase and it means "on her or his own". Process of getting the divorce without the help of lawyer may vary from one State to another. These types of divorces are perfectly legal and enforceable in Maine, and are actually very convenient. Usually, once settlements have been made regarding property distribution and custody matters among the spouses in case of a mutual divorce, Pro Se Divorces are filed.
