While ideally every divorce would go smoothly, there are a number of factors that can complicate the divorce process. One of the most common issues is when one spouse is living in a different location. However, whether that spouse is currently serving in the military, living in another state or country, or in an entirely unknown location, there are specific procedures that will need to be followed.

Location is not the only factor that can complicate divorces, however. Divorces that involve prenuptial agreements, same-sex marriage, high net worth, or pregnancy may also face added complexity. The guides and resources in this section provide additional information on these factors, as well as how to handle a divorce that involves them.
