Anticipating post-divorce complications

Anticipating post-divorce complications

| Mar 11, 2020 | Firm News |

Following a divorce, there is a myriad of challenges that arise for some people. Some divorces are very straightforward and free of complications, such as couples who work together and end their marriage on relatively good terms. However, some divorces are very hostile and some people have complicated circumstances involving their finances and children. In some instances, this results in various post-divorce stressors that require careful consideration and many people are able to anticipate these hurdles beforehand. 

For example, some couples know that child custody will remain a contentious issue after a decision is made in court. Or, some people are well aware that they will struggle to make child support payments for one reason or another. For example, some people know that their job is unstable or they have plans to quit their job or switch to a lower-paying position. On top of legal issues, some people simply have difficulty with the emotional fallout of a divorce and adjusting to living life on their own. After all, when a long-term marriage ends, adjusting to daily life is very difficult for a lot of people. 

Excessively worrying about post-divorce family law problems is not helpful, but a certain amount of concern is unavoidable. Fortunately, people can often put their worries to rest (or at least minimize their anxiety) by carefully going over their legal options and knowing that they have a firm grasp of their circumstances as well as the difficulties that are likely around the corner.
