5 True/False questions
Ex Parte Divorce → a judicial separation, a divorce a mensa et thoro
irreconcilable differences → A divorce judgment that is enforceable only in part. A divorce judgment can (1) dissolve the marriage (2) award spousal support, (3) award child support, (4) divide marital property and (5) award child custody. AS we will see, a court needs more that one kind of jurisdiction to accomplish all of these objectives. The court may try to accomplish all five, but only that part of the judgment for which it had proper jurisdiction is enforceable. In other words, the judgment is divisible int the parts for which the court had proper jurisdiction and the parts for which it did not. For example, assume that a court dissolves the marriage and awards child support. If the court had the right kinds of jurisdiction to award child support, then only the part of the judgment that dissolved the marriage is enforceable. Another state would not havae to give full faith and credit to the child-support award but would have to give such credit to the dissolution itself.
