Frequently Asked Questions:

How are assets divided in a divorce?
Spouses can divide their assets as they see fit through a Marital Settlement Agreement. Many divorces begin contentious, but settlement agreements on property divisions are often reached without the need of a judge’s intervention.

How long does a divorce take?
How much is there to fight about? A divorce takes a minimum of 60 days from the date the opposing party is served before it can be finalized in South Dakota.

Who gets custody of the children in a divorce?
If the parents cannot agree on custody of their child, the courts decide custody based on the best interests of the child. There are many factors the court considers when making this determination, with no single factor being the most important.
