What Makes Divorce So Complicated?
One of the reasons divorce can take so long is that you’re separating two entangled lives. Not only does the couple likely share a living space, but most of their property and assets are shared. If the divorce isn’t amicable, the couple will have a difficult time figuring out which asset belongs to which partner. Often, asset division involves the participation of an attorney. He or she can assist you and your spouse in dividing your assets, if not equally than equitably. Before you go to court over property, consider asking your attorneys about alternative dispute resolution (ADR) techniques, such as negotiation or mediation. Many couples have opted for ADR in order to save time and money.
In addition, children can make divorces much more complicated. If the couple can’t agree on physical or legal custody, the courts must get involved. The law also makes decisions on custody based on the child’s wellbeing. If you need help agreeing on terms with your spouse, contact an experienced divorce attorney.
