Although we think of divorce as a marriage dissolving, it also means a change in the daily lives and schedules of the children, too. They’re often involved in divorce cases, especially since divorces happen, on average, after nine years of marriage.
Going through a divorce is never easy, but for many couples, it’s the smart choice. Things always become a bit more complex in family law cases when children are involved, because both custody and child support must be sorted out.
No one should find themselves in an abusive relationship. Unfortunately, far too many people are and don’t even realize it until it’s too late. These circumstances can be made much worse if a legal marriage is involved, making it more difficult for one partner to separate from the other.
As much as we may like to assume that most marriages are healthy and positive relationships, far too often this is not the case. There are any number of reasons that a couple may not get along or have problems, such as differences of opinion, conflicting parenting style, or they simply could just be two people who were forced into a marriage they never had any interest in, in the first place.
Internal family matters are always sensitive issues. When problems become serious enough, these matters can end up in a court of law. In recent years, divorce has likely been the most prominent of all family law proceedings.
