In a divorce, these are the normal issues that occur:
Divorce (fault or non-fault), spousal support (alimony), child support, child custody, community property, and domestic abuse.
In 2014, the legislature passed a law that allows a lawsuit for domestic abuse (cause of action). General, special, and exemplary damages may be awarded upon proof that injuries resulted from the wanton and reckless acts from domestic abuse that result in serious bodily injury or severe emotional or mental distress injuries.
