Divorce Litigation (With Kids)
When a divorce looms on the horizon, the nightmare for parents can be a drawn-out and expensive process that seemingly goes on forever. But the divorce process is very stressful for children as well, due to the enormous amounts of uncertainty. Kids are creatures of habit, and divorce can change with whom they live, where they go to school, and how they spend holidays and vacations.
In some divorces, both parties harmoniously come together to decide child custody, visitation, and splitting assets and debts. But that doesn’t always happen, and if the parties can’t reach an amicable agreement, divorce litigation can become a necessity. It’s true that litigation can become expensive since you’re spending more time working with your divorce attorney and appearing before a judge in court. But in some situations, it’s the best possible way to craft a divorce or separation agreement that’s favorable to you.
Divorce litigation is often the appropriate path to take if you and your spouse disagree on subjects like:
- Custody of your children
- Terms of visitation
- Child support amounts and frequency
- Alimony payment amounts and frequency
- Asset division
- Debt distribution
