What are the most important considerations in divorce? P.2

In our previous post, we began looking at the findings of the Institute of Family Studies on the most important factors couples consider when considering divorce. As we noted, these four factors include very practical considerations about money and the impact on children, but also subjective factors like love and happiness.

The practical considerations of money and children are the most important things a couple has to deal with in the divorce process. Every couple has different circumstances and different needs in these areas. Some couples are able to work through child custody and property division issues with little trouble, resolving any disagreements relatively quickly and painlessly. Other couples may have complicated situations or personalities which make it very difficult to work through these issues. 

Regardless of the circumstances a couple faces, it is important for both parties to work closely with experienced legal counsel to protect their rights and zealously advocate their interests through the process. Swiftly resolving differences in child custody and property division matters is not necessarily always the best thing to do. The risk is that one party may attempt to take advantage of the other and leave the other with the short end of the stick in terms of property, or with a poor reputation as a parent. An experienced attorney can help ensure that a party who is inclined to resolve any disputes that arise does not do so at his or her own expense.

Likewise, those who are inclined to dig their heels in and fight out every issue need experienced representation to ensure their interests are advocated while keeping in mind the need to move through the divorce process as efficiently as possible. In any case, experienced legal counsel is indispensable.
