For this blog post, we thought it would be interesting if we examined the root causes for many legal issues and complications involving family law in California. Namely, what are the biggest factors that lead to tensions and conflict between married couples, which eventually spirals into a divorce?
Although we deal with divorce on a regular basis, we also often lend our expertise to clients who are getting married, especially for those who are looking to get re-married with an ex-spouse. This is often a cause for celebration and in truth, reconciliations are more common than many people assume.
After a divorce, many parents report that the biggest challenge they face is the distance that often forms between parents and their children, especially when the other parent holds primary custody. This distance can be an obstacle when trying to formulate an effective parenting plan, and even when parents are willing to work together, physical distance makes logistics that much more difficult to work out.
Divorce can often be described as tense, hostile, and downright rage-inducing. It’s not surprising, given the nature of the conflict, but people can often say or do things that go too far. Name-calling, nasty accusations, and false allegations are just some of the things we’ve seen surface during the typical divorce proceedings.
