The pain of 'feeling' after a divorce

When someone has decided to end their marriage and pursue a divorce in Florida, the challenges they are facing can often be unnerving and overwhelming. Processing the significant change that has taken place, grieving the loss of a once-cherished relationship and coming to terms with an uncertain future can take time. Often, people are required to process these difficult emotions while managing the details of their divorce including child custody and relocation. 

Stepchildren and family law matters

When a marriage ends, it can be a tumultuous time for the entire family. Moreover, some families, such as those which involve a stepparent, may have additional uncertainty as they move toward the finalization of a divorce. For example, a stepparent may have questions about whether or not they will be able to spend time with their child after the divorce and their visitation or custody rights. Moreover, some may wonder if they will be obligated to pay child support.

Approaching divorce as a young couple

In recent years, many people have been pushing off marriage until they are older. However, some people still tie the knot at a young age for various reasons. For example, a couple that is in their teens may get married following an unexpected pregnancy, or another couple may decide to get married right after they have finished college because they feel ready to settle down. However, those who get married at a very early age may come to find that their marriage is not working out and that divorce is necessary. The divorce process can be very tough for couples in this position.

How can I deal with conflict during the holidays?

While the holidays are thought to be a time of joy and celebration, this is not always the case. For recently divorced people in Florida, the holiday season can be rife with conflict and bad feelings. That’s why Very Well Mind offers the following tips, which can help you navigate family issues wherever they arise.

Is legal separation right for you?

Floridian couples like you may have come to the conclusion that you want to split from your partner. However, you may be wondering if divorce is the only answer - or if it's the right option for your unique situation. Fortunately for you, there are actually a number of options to choose from.

Financial hardships and the divorce process

When a couple ends their marriage, many issues may surface. Strong emotions are common, especially when a custody dispute or some other serious family law challenge arises. Moreover, the financial impact of a divorce can be staggering. You may be able to lessen the financial impact of ending your marriage through preparation. At the very least, you may be better prepared to emotionally manage the different ways in which your divorce will affect your finances.

Leaving an abusive marriage

For some people, the decision to file for a divorce may be based on a simple desire to part ways because the partnership is not compatible, or someone has found a new partner. For others, such as those who have been subjected to domestic violence, the decision to divorce may be based on a serious need to protect oneself. If you have experienced domestic violence, it is pivotal for you to know all of the options that you may have to ensure the well-being of yourself as well as your children. Moreover, you should carefully approach the process of divorce and other family law issues that may arise (such as a dispute over custody).

Preparing yourself for property division

Our law firm knows that divorce issues can be hard for many reasons. Some are very emotional, such as those which involve a custody dispute, while others may be difficult from a financial point of view (child support, alimony and so on). Property division can be hard from both an emotional and financial standpoint, bringing up concerns about losing property with sentimental value and assets that one has worked hard to acquire. In Naples and other cities throughout the state of Florida, those who are preparing to split up with someone they are married to should carefully go over property division laws and try to prepare.

Focusing on your divorce in the midst of other challenges

When a married couple decides that the time has come to bring things to an end, there may be many areas of uncertainty. For example, questions could arise regarding family law issues which involve children, such as child support or a dispute over custody. Financial issues may also become problematic, especially for couples with considerable assets. Property division, alimony and many other family law issues can create challenges for couples in this position. Sometimes, external stressors which have nothing to do with family law can further complicate matters, and it is important to make sure that these challenges do not interfere with your divorce.

Ending your marriage over an emotional affair

There are all sorts of factors that can contribute to a couple’s decision to split up, whether the decision is mutual or one party is determined to move on from the marriage. Infidelity is a major reason why many couples end their marriage and people do not always have affairs that are physical in nature, but some may be emotional. In the digital age, there are many different apps and new methods of communication, such as video chat, which can make it easier for people to have these types of affairs with others from across the globe.
