Are There Options Beyond Divorce Court?
Separating from your spouse is emotionally and financially draining. For many, this complicated process is one of the greatest challenges of one’s lifetime. While dealing with the reality of losing the emotional support of your former partner, you will need to continue working with them to make important long-term decisions about splitting up shared property, sharing parental obligations and considering financial support options. Despite the disagreements during the relationship, many divorcing couples are successful in resolving these issues without going to court. Former partners may come to a resolution between themselves, enlist the assistance of a third-party mediator, or utilize collaborative law to make arrangements.
These options will not work for everyone. High-conflict divorces often require a court’s assistance to make and enforce rulings about property, financial support, and parental agreements. Divorce court may be your best option when your spouse refuses to communicate with you, goes missing, attempts to bully you into giving up your rights, hires a combative lawyer or generally lacks good faith. Tragically, some may respond to the notion of divorce with extreme anger. Vindictive partners may attempt to seek revenge by lying to the court or concealing assets or income. If you find yourself in a similar situation, then it’s important to seek out an experienced legal representative to protect your rights.
