What constitutes desertion under North Dakota divorce law?

When pursuing a fault-based divorce in North Dakota, there are many reasons why the request will be granted by the court. Some of the basics that most will think about when considering a reason for divorce are adultery and abuse. One that does not get significant attention is desertion. However, it happens quite often and those who are considering a divorce because they believe a spouse has deserted them should know what the law says about how desertion is defined.

A high-asset divorce requires experienced legal representation

North Dakota residents who are of modest means might think people who have significant assets are happier and do not face the same challenges others do. This is not an accurate portrayal. Everyone has problems in their life and that can extend to a dispute with a spouse that ultimately leads to a divorce. All divorces are different, but it is important for those having a high asset divorce that they understand there is a great deal at stake in terms of property, assets and perhaps a business. Before making decisions that could cause regret later, it is imperative to have legal advice from the start.

Commandments of Family Law

  1. The only truth your children need to know is that you both love them unconditionally, and that this isn't their fault.
  2. Take the high road — everyone wins when you do what's best for your kids.
  3. Negotiate but don't capitulate — if you are being pushed toward something detrimental for your children, stand your ground.
  4. You can only control yourself and how you respond. Don't engage.
  5. Do set up rules and responsibilities. Kids feel better when routine is continued.
  6. You are still their parent — don't be afraid to be one.
  7. Disneyland is in California, not in your home. Don't set up unreasonable expectations.
  8. It is not their job to take care of you. Repeat that to them. Often.
  9. Yelling is for sports — not court. Good lawyers strongly advocate without being disrespectful to opposing parties.
  10. Fair is a place you go to get cheese curds. Aside from that, nothing in life is fair.
