Factors that can contribute to a complex divorce
Divorce, even under the most reasonable of circumstances, is rarely simplistic. Divorce is a multifaceted process where various factors may come into play.
As you dissolve your marriage, various factors may complicate your divorce.
About 54% of people believe that debt is a fair reason to consider divorce. However, when you file for divorce, you must work out your financial entanglements. Your shared debts, financial responsibilities and assets can become complex issues as you attempt to distribute your resources fairly and equitably. An inability to agree about your finances can prolong the divorce process.
Child custody and support
Couples with children have another layer of complexity added to their divorce case. When it comes to your children, you must decide on their best interests while navigating the emotional and logistical challenges associated with the divorce. If you and your former spouse do not have shared beliefs on how to arrange custody, you may have to work through the courts to find a balance that respects both of your rights as well as the rights of your children.
Emotional breakdowns and strains on communication
Many couples find it difficult to communicate during a divorce. After all, many divorces occur because the couples have difficulty communicating. You may find it harder to reach an amicable solution if you share resentment or anger. For couples with a lot of resentment, try to communicate only with the help of a third party or through messaging or email applications.
As you navigate through the divorce proceedings, unforeseen events, such as health issues and shifts in employment, can also cause you to adjust your agreements or delay the process.
