What you need to know
Even though the relationship between you and your spouse has changed and you may no longer be living together, until you are legally divorced, you are still married. The legal ramifications of being married vary from state to state, but generally speaking, until you are divorced you and your spouse have certain rights and obligations to one another. In general, until you are divorced not only can you not remarry but also anything you obtain may be subject to a claim of ownership, in whole or in part, by your spouse, and the future ownership of assets and property already obtained may be unclear.

The Delaware court does not consider the gender of the parents when determining custody. Whenever the court must resolve disputed custody, it uses the best interests of the child standard and considers the wishes of the child's parents as to his or her living arrangements, the wishes of the child, the interaction of the child with siblings, grandparents, or other members of the family, the child's adjustment to his or her home, school, and community, the emotional and physical health of the entire family and evidence of domestic violence on the child, other family members, or anyone else.
