Divorce can be an emotionally difficult process prior to reaching the point where one or both parties is able to finally attain the "Joy of Divorce". But like many things in life, one can't truly understand how it feels before experiencing it yourself. But if you are in the midst of a breakup and get the feeling that you may never be happy, you are not alone.
It's no secret that stressful marriages can wear people down. Indeed, marriages take a great deal of work, even with good marriages. But when the relationship becomes difficult to manage, stressful marriages can leave people depressed.
For a child, there’s nothing like the excitement and anticipation of a new school year. Even though they may not show it right now, they are probably bored of summer and ready to meet new classmates, new teachers and experience new things.
Sometimes, spouses may come to the realization that their marriage is not going to last. At that point, they must grapple with many issues and decisions. If you are facing a divorce in Texas, an experienced family law attorney can help you understand what you are up against.
In custody disputes, fathers tend to think that they are squarely behind the eight-ball, even before they have an initial hearing before the court. This is because of well-founded fears that family court is a bastion for mothers and that men tend not to get a fair shake. The numbers support these fears. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 80 percent of all single parent households are headed by women.
If you are embroiled in a dispute over custody and/or parenting time, and you cannot reach an agreement, it is possible that the court may order a custody evaluation. Essentially, this is where an impartial third party will conduct an investigation, gather information about you and your relationships and make recommendations to the judge as to how custody and parenting time should be awarded.
Regardless of the reasons, going through a divorce can be a highly emotional and energy draining process. The time between making the decision to divorce and obtaining a final divorce decree can be long, stressful and difficult, especially in cases involving significant amounts of assets.
