Rapper and wife decide to nix their divorce


Filing for divorce is a major, life-altering decision. It is not one a couple comes by lightly. After pledging to spend life with someone else and raising a family together, to just call all of that quits is an extremely difficult decision to make. However, divorce happens a lot in today's society. Upon making the decision to divorce there are a number of matters that need to be resolved legally between the parties. For instance, some of the issues at hand in a divorce are: alimony, custody, child support, property division and visitation. These are all pretty important topics that may require legal attention.

Particulars in a divorce consists of issues like property division, asset valuation, alimony, child support and child custody, which all require resolution.

Determining child custody is probably one of the biggest decisions that a court has to make when dealing with divorce. There are a plethora of other things that have to be handled in divorce proceedings, but none are as paramount as who takes custody of the children. Because of the impact that this decision has on the family, and more importantly on the children, the courts utilize the "best interest of the child" standard when making this decision. This is a uniform standard that all courts in all jurisdictions follow to ensure that the children are adequately and appropriately represented in a divorce proceeding.
