The infographics in this interconnectivity overview are designed as an aid to assist in seeing the "big picture" and visualizing how many of the issues are interrelated. The infographics are arranged into six categories: Legal Actions, Children (Custody and Support), Spousal Support, Division of Assets, Miscellaneous Issues and Attorney's Fees.
In most civil litigation matters there is one issue and the facts don't change. In family law matters, there may be numerous issues and the facts often change between the date of separation and the date of settlement or trial. It is important to see the interconnectivity of the issues and understand that it is generally necessary to analyze a family law matter taking into consideration how each issue may relate or impact other issues. For instance, spousal support may relate to child support, attorney's fees, property division, an award of a business to one party and the date of separation.
