Going through a divorce is a difficult and complicated process that can drain the individual's mental and emotional energy. There is so much that goes into a divorce -- and we don't say that to discourage you from filing if you and your spouse have legitimate issues that can't be resolved. From child custody to spousal support; and property division to prenuptial agreements; and everything in between; it is crucial for someone involved in a divorce to know what they are getting into.
There are tremendous personal implications for a divorce, especially if children are involved. Both parents want what is best for their kids (or kids), but they may have different ideas as to how to achieve that. Custody can be a contested issue (though often it is not), and then support payments can play a huge role in the post-divorce lives of the former spouses.
And, of course, there are the financial issues at play in a divorce. So many aspects of our lives involve money, so it is no surprise that a divorce is heavily centered on money and finances. Pensions, retirement accounts, bank accounts, pieces of property: they are all part of an elaborate process, and the spouses involved need to be prepared for the often chaotic negotiations and discussions that can be involved here.
With these points in mind, please consider our law firm -- The Law Offices of Ashley Philpot Mattos -- if you are in need of help when you and your spouse decide it is time to part ways.
