If a divorce is happening, chances are that something has gone wrong in the relationship, even if the couple says they have simply “drifted apart.” No one gets married with the thought that the relationship could end in divorce. For many people, the animosity, ill will and emotional turmoil that finally leads to a divorce have been building up for a long time, maybe even for years.
However, once a divorce case has actually been filed, both spouses can benefit from focusing on the legal issues in the case – not on emotions alone. There is no denying the emotional impact that a divorce can have on a person – that’s true.
But, the actual legal case is a process in which issues must be addressed, solutions reached and, ultimately, a conclusion to the case must be sought. If that is your focus, it may even help with the emotions you are facing as the case proceeds.
Property division, alimony, child custody, child support – these are all common issues to address in a divorce case. There may be emotional impulses on all sides to support pursuing one position or another. But, flexibility, the ability to compromise and even empathy can be useful for Pennsylvania residents who are facing these issues and want to get past them.
