The track that your family law case will follow through the Court system depends upon whether you have minor children. Today, all new Family cases are filed in District Court. If you don’t have minor children, your case will be handled by a Judge.
Maine distributes property equitably, but this does not necessarily mean equally. The court takes several factors into account including the length of the marriage, each spouse's contribution to the property and economic circumstances among other things.
