A myriad of factors can influence the outcome of a divorce case, such as accusations of intimate partner violence and the financial position of each party. However, dealing with divorce matters can be especially tough for those who travel regularly or have an extensive trip coming up. Whether you have planned a vacation and do not want the end of your marriage to derail what you lined up or you are required to travel for business purposes, it is very important to do what you can to reduce the likelihood of your trip having a negative impact on the outcome of your divorce.

In some cases, it can be a good idea for people to cancel their plans or shorten their trips, if possible. For example, being out of the country during a custody hearing could have a detrimental impact on one’s ability to obtain the most favorable child custody outcome. You could be able to explain your circumstances to your employer and either cancel or shorten your business trip as well. Moreover, it could be beneficial to explain your situation to your spouse and see if they are willing to accommodate your schedule, although this definitely does not always work out.

Sometimes, people simply cannot cancel their travel plans. If you are in this position, you should try to be mindful of the potential hurdles that could lie ahead and prepare thoroughly.
