No matter how it comes about, marriage dissolution can throw an individual's life into disarray. What was once a cohesive family unit is suddenly splintered, leaving individuals looking for stability in their post-divorce lives. There are many issues that can reshape one's life after marriage, including child custody, property division, and alimony. These matters, some of which are financial in nature, are about so much more than money. They are also about children's emotional stability, closure, and ending a relationship with fairness.
Divorcing parties often disagree about what is considered fair, though, as well as what is best for their children. When this is the case, important and complicated family law issues may become contentious. Those individuals who are able to competently argue their position on these matters stand a chance at obtaining an outcome that is favorable to them and their children. Those who put forth weak legal arguments, on the other hand, risk a lot, including time with their children, a fair share of marital assets, and support in the form of alimony and child support.
Addressing these legal issues can be difficult, especially since most divorcing parties are emotionally invested in the case. Although one certainly should refrain from being detached during the divorce process, being overly emotional can cloud one's judgment and cause him or her to lose sight of the legal points that need to be scored in order to reach a desired resolution. For this reason, it is often critical that those confronting divorce obtain the assistance of a skilled legal professional, like those at the Law Office of Cecil & Cianci.
