For most people, divorce is a difficult and stressful time. Along with the personal emotions inherent in such a dissolution, there are financial and legal issues to be dealt with as well.
Who gets custody of the children? How will the assets and liabilities be divided? If a business is involved, what happens to it? What about spousal maintenance?
All cases are different, and the answers to the questions above will depend largely on the individual facts of your case. The division of marital property, and whether or not spousal maintenance is awarded, are typically decisions made by the court, unless you and your spouse can come to a mutually acceptable agreement.
